Kim's Academy of Dance
Kim’s Academy of Dance is a great place to gain confidence, poise and lasting friendships by studying with nurturing teachers in a noncompetitive environment. We believe dancing should be FUN and AFORDABLE and the goal of Kim’s Academy is to keep prices as low as possible and still be able to teach proper technique in all areas of dance. We offer a wide variety of classes from toddlers through college!
Combination classes are one hour long and include ballet, tumbling and tap. These classes are very important for the younger dancer because they teach the basic fundamentals for all dance types. Children will begin to develop a sense of timing and rhythm while working on their coordination and body control. As students stay together year after year, their combination classes alternate from ballet one year to jazz the next.
Ballet Technique is a must if you are interested in pointe. We require one year of ballet technique before going on your toes to dance. Anyone in sixth, seventh or eighth grade is eligible for this class. It is a lot of hard work, but if properly trained, pointe dancing is very beautiful and self-rewarding.
Lyrical Dance is a dance form that focuses more on flowing body movements, flexibility and feeling. It has become so popular we are now offering it to our younger students. We have a special lyrical class for fourth and fifth graders, along with our junior high ballet technique class. To enhance one’s overall ability we suggest taking both Lyrical and a Jazz & Tap class.
