Welcome to our lively and dynamic Combo class at Studio C! Designed specifically for dancers aged 5-7, this 45-minute adventure is filled with excitement and exploration. Get ready to dive into the world of ballet, tap, and tumbling as your child discovers their passion for multiple dance styles!
Our Combo class provides a structured and disciplined environment where the foundations of dance are built. In this class, your child will learn basic ballet, tap, and tumbling skills, fostering a well-rounded dance education right from the start.
We begin the class with tap shoes, allowing our young dancers to develop their musicality, timing, and rhythm. For the first 15-20 minutes, they will immerse themselves in the lively beats and infectious energy of tap dance, exploring the joy of making music with their feet.
After this delightful tap experience, it’s time to change shoes and transition into the graceful world of ballet. Even at a young age, we emphasize proper ballet terminology, ensuring that your child gains a solid foundation in the art of ballet. By learning the precise names for positions and movements, they will develop a strong technical understanding from the very beginning.
At Studio C, we understand that our youngest dancers require special attention to meet their physical, emotional, and mental developmental needs. We carefully tailor our lessons to nurture their growth and ensure a positive and enjoyable experience. We prioritize the delicate nature of their muscles and bones, focusing on teaching them how their bodies work physically.
Our instructors are experienced in working with young children and create a supportive and engaging atmosphere. They guide your child through each step, helping them understand their bodies and encouraging them to express themselves through movement.
In the Combo class, your child will not only develop their dance skills but also gain valuable life skills such as discipline, coordination, and teamwork. They’ll form lasting friendships with fellow dancers, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie.
At Studio C, your child’s safety is our utmost priority. We create a nurturing environment where proper technique and injury prevention are paramount. Our instructors are certified professionals who are passionate about working with young dancers, ensuring that their well-being is always protected.
So, if you’re looking for a class that offers a diverse dance experience while focusing on the unique developmental needs of your child, our Combo class is the perfect fit.

When is the recital?
Recital Dates are subject to change based on auditorium availability. Any changes will be communicated promptly. The Spring Recital date is tentatively set for the 1st Saturday in June. See our Recital Page for more up-to-date information.
What is your attendance policy?
Students are expected to attend classes for which they are registered. If a student misses 4 consecutive classes without making formal arrangements with studio instructors and/or administration, his/her space will be forfeited in the class for the next month. Students with excessive absences will not be permitted to perform in our annual recital.
Are parents allowed to stay in class to watch?
“WATCH DAYS” will be the first full week in November and April. This is the lesson parents and visitors are welcome to view in class. Remember, this is your day to see your child’s progress.
Please do not disturb the class by visiting amongst yourselves. Turn the ringer on the phone down. Please keep your little ones seated and quiet. In other lessons, parents are asked to walk their child inside the building and then wait in the waiting room, run a quick errand, or treat themselves to a walk around the block! This enables the dance instructors to keep the attention of the students, as well as helps those who may be a little reluctant to feel more at ease.
