Children's Dance 

We offer a wonderful foundation for children's dance with our classes in classcial ballet, tap, and creative movement for boys and girls ages 3-6 at Collierville Arts Academy.

Class Descriptions 

Collierville Arts Academy Children's Dance Classes are for ages 3-6.  Our dance class season begins each August and concludes with the school year in May.  We also offer a summer session for children's dance.  Parents may observe their child's class from our observation windows into the studio rooms.  Each class level at Collierville Arts Academy has a dress code that is purchased from our in-studio boutique once a student is enrolled at the Arts Academy.  All dance students with long hair must wear their hair pulled back from their face and in a ponytail or bun style while taking class.

Little Steps (age 3) (30 minute class 1x per week) A delightful pre-ballet class using colorful props, inspiring music, and creative stories to teach dance fundamentals for pre-schoolers.  Proper dance terminology and age appropriate dance movement is presented in our Little Steps syllabus so students develop good habits from the beginning and are prepared to continue their dance training in our Dance Discovery level.  Little Steps dancers have an in-studio performance in December and in May during the academy's dance season: there are no additional costume or performance fees associated with Little Steps. 

Dance Discovery I (ages 4-5) (45 minute class 1x per week) A combination of classical ballet and tap skills help students develop excellent coordination, balance and rhythm. Creative themes, motivating music, and unique props offer students additional incentives in learning proper dance terminology and age appropriate dance techniques each week.   Dance Discovery I students have an informal, in-studio performance for family in December and perform in our Annual Student Showcase in May.  

Dance Discovery II (ages 5-6) (45 minute class 1x per week) A combination of classical ballet and tap skills help students develop more skilled coordination, balance and rhythm with their dancing.  Our motivating music and special themed props offers the student additional incentives for learning proper dance terminology and age appropriate dance techniques each week.  Students will work at the barre, center and across the floor using combinations of steps from our class syllabus.   Dance Discovery II students have an informal, in-studio performance for family in December and perform in our Annual Student Showcase in May.  

Dance Discovery III (ages 6+)  (45 minute class 1x per week)  Dance Discovery III is a school-aged children's level dance class including barre, center and across the floor technique using combinations of steps from our Dance Discovery III syllabus.  Students begin preparing for more advanced dance skills in classical ballet, tap, and stage direction.  Acting and pantomime skills help to enhace their story telling ability and open a whole new dimension to their dance creativity.  Dance Discovery III students have an informal, in-studio performance for family in December and perform in our Annual Student Showcase in May.
