We offer Ballet, Pre-point, Studio Hip-hop, Musical Theater, Tap, Contemporary, and Pom classes for dancers 7-11 years. In class, dancers will challenge their strength, coordination, flexibility, and focus as they learn new skills in a supportive environment. Dancers will take artistic risks exploring our 15 core dance concepts (e.g. movement quality and rhythm), developing their creativity, personal style, and artistic confidence. All dancers in our youth classes are also eligible to perform in our Spring Performance, a wonderful opportunity to share all they've learned on stage.
Dancers begin formal ballet training at the barre learning classical ballet positions, postures, and alignment. Dancers develop strength, flexibility, musicality, balance, coordination, and stamina through center exercises. Eastside Dance draws from the best of Balanchine and Vagonova ballet techniques.
Join us in this fast-paced dance class. Dancers learn hip-hop dance technique and culture in a studio setting, beginning with bounces, rolls, grooves, rocks, and 2-steps. Dancers learn choreography weekly, developing coordination, rhythm, strength, and memory. Classes are set to age-appropriate hip-hop music.
Musical Theater is a unique class offered at Eastside Dance, that combines the most common forms of dance found on Broadway: Musical Theater Jazz and Tap. If you love musical theater and acting, or dream of being on Broadway, this class is for you!
This class is perfect for free-form movers or dancers who can't help but move to the music. Contemporary movement pulls from Jazz, Lyrical, Classical modern dance techniques (Horton, Graham, Cunningham), and improvisation, to create a grounded, free, and emotive movement.
Dancers will have a blast in this upbeat class! Pom dance draws from Cheer, Hip-hop, Jazz, and Pom techniques. Dancers will develop their strength, coordination, flexibility, and teamwork while learning cheer jumps, basic stunts, and dance team choreography If your dancer dreams of being on a dance team or cheer squad, this is the class for them.
Please check our dress code for each class here. Our dress code is designed to keep dancers safe and distraction-free by having proper, well-fitting footwear and attire that allows instructors to ensure safe alignment.
Trial classes are a great way to learn if a class is a good fit for you. However, a trial class reservation does not hold a spot for your dancer in the class. If the class fills before your trial class, you will be unable to enroll in that class. If you do not see a trial class option listed for your desired class, it likely means the class is almost full and we recommend enrolling directly. Click here to schedule a free trial class.
If your desired class is full, please sign up for the waitlist. When a spot becomes available in your class, we will email and text you. Enrollment in the open spot will be first come first serve. To be removed from the waitlist, please respond to the text or email and let us know. Click here to sign up for a waitlist.
