At The Movement Box (“TMB”) all our classes are broken into different levels to ensure that each dancer/family finds the best class to fit their lifestyle, interests, and commitment level.
Children’s Classes: Our children’s classes are designed for the young dancer. They include our creative movement, hip hop bop, preballet and tap, and ballet tap jazz combo classes. These classes teach the young dancer the basic fundamentals of dance genres and give them the skills to progress in dance. In addition to their dance training, they learn how to take class, build social skills, and learn appropriate class behavior.
Level Classes: Our level classes are designed for students who enjoy dancing on a recreational level. They usually prefer to dance 1-2 days a week, leaving time to pursue other activities. Our level classes receive the same quality teachers as more advanced classes. Level classes include our ballet, tap, tumbling, and jazz classes and are designated by a number, i.e. Ballet 1. Please note a student may remain in the same number level for multiple years.
Company Classes: Our company classes are designed for the serious dance student. Company dancers take multiple classes during the week and are held to high standards of attendance, discipline, commitment, and performance. Our company dancers have extra performance opportunities around the holiday season and over the summer. Company dancers are required to take ballet and must participate in summer dance sessions/intensives. Students that are new to TMB are generally recommended to complete one year at the recreational level before pursuing company.
Competition Classes: The TMB Competition team is for our most committed dancers. Competition groups are formed following an audition in early October. Groups are formed by placing together students that we feel show outstanding dance potential and that will complement each other nicely. Dance expectations at this level are very high and these students devote a tremendous amount of time, hard work, and intensity into their training.
Adult Classes: Our adult classes are designed to be a fun, relaxing, yet still challenging way for the adult dancer to start dancing, or get back into dancing. We try to balance creating challenging classes with the understanding that adult dancers have different needs and goals. We have a terrific time while also learning a lot! Our adult classes are designated as such on the schedule.
