Dance for Joy

All our classes are run on a school year basis. First Steps and Pre-Ballet for younger children are 45 minutes, once a week. Classes become one hour, once a week, as students progress to the beginner ballet levels, and increase to one and one half hour classes twice a week as students progress to intermediate and advanced levels and pointe work.

Dance for Joy
Dance for Joy, founded in 1994, is a ballet school dedicated to providing quality dance training with emphasis on enjoyment and building of self-esteem.  We believe that ballet can be a fulfilling form of exercise for everyone, regardless of their age, experience or aptitude.  In other words, we offer real classical training to the talented and not!  We do not favor the serious student; however our students have been accepted into many prestigious summer programs including ABT, Walnut Hill School and Chautauqua.  Our graduates have received college dance scholarships and have danced (or are dancing) with professional companies.
All our classes are taught by experienced and caring professionals.  Class sizes are limited.  Care is taken at all levels to ensure age appropriate exercises and expectations, and to instill a foundation of good training - while having fun!
First Steps (ages 3 and 4) and Pre-Ballet (ages 5 and 6)
Both of these classes are two year programs.  Creativity is incorporated onto the ballet class format of warm-up, stretching, center and reverence to include lots of creative movement, imagination (pretend costumes, pretend makeup, etc.), pantomime, familiar songs and music, and learning about story ballets.  They are a fun and active introduction to the world of dance.
Beginner through Advanced Ballet
More serious ballet begins in second grade, but we still have fun!  A full barre and center work are taught with emphasis on a positive experience and age appropriate exercises.  After 3 or 4 years of ballet, girls must pass a physical readiness test for pointe and are required to take twice a week classes.  After at least one year of pointe, additional "honors" classes may be taken.  
We do also offer a program for older beginner students to start in their own class, and in two or three years catch up to their age group.
Adult Classes
We offer an adult intermediate/advanced open class once a week.  Tuition is by class cards for 10 classes.  These cards are valid for 12 weeks. These are open classes, so it is not necessary to register for these classes.
