Curriculum

Ballet/Jazz Combo  Classes are divided into 2 half hour sections to introduce the basics of Ballet and Jazz.  Students will not only learn terminology, but will also develop gross motor skills, listening skills, and musicality.  


Hip Hop is a 45-minute class focusing on the popular urban culture style of dance that provides a funky edge to the basic styles of dance.

We ask everyone to be patient the first month of classes.  During this time, both students and instructors will be learning about each other and the class as a whole.  Some classes may not be the size we anticipated, and we may have to move students to a different class.  Some students, (for their benefit) may need to be moved according to their ability level and classroom behavior.  Advancement is based on correct placement, skill mastery, and instructor recommendation--not just by age.  There may be students of varying ages in certain classes based on their progress.  The student's attitude, classroom etiquette, as well as, their interest and goals will be taken into consideration.  Students will be evaluated throughout each session to determine if they are in the class that best meets and addresses their skills and ability level.

CREATING A CLASS:


  If you are interested in creating a class, there must be at least 5 students ready to sign up.  Danceline LA will then look for studio space and a teacher available to coordinate the time slot requested.  All payments and registration fees are due before their first class begins and you must agree to follow Danceline LA's current season policies.
