4's Musical Theater Add-On is a fun, developmentally appropriate 30 minute class for children who are four years old on October 1 of the current school year. Add-on classes require enrollement in ballet and are the answer for class our young students wanting to take multiple dance styles in one evening. Add-on classes happen before or after ballet, allowing families a one-stop experience for dance classes without exhausting our young dancers with back to back standard length classes.
Musical Theatre students are introduced to basic voice, acting & jazz dance skills with fun, easy to understand games & songs. In addition, dancers are taught to use their good dance manners by respecting other students, the studio and the teacher.
Students will learn two or three song and dance routines over the course of the school year, presenting the final dance at our spring performance. Parents will have the opportunity to view the other routines in the studio as they are completed.
This class is designed with the typical developmental abilities of 4 year old in mind. Children must be 4 by October 1 AND enrolled in a 4's Ballet* class to enroll. Because the curriculum progresses incrementally from August to May and is based on the age and corresponding developmental abilities of the dancers in fall, strict adherence to the age limit is enforced.
*Alternatively, 4's may enroll in an add-on class with co-enrollment in an any standard length 60 minute 4's class (ballet, tap, or musical theatre).
Dress code for 4's is a lavender** pinch front tank leotard, pink dance tights, and pink leather ballet shoes. All hair must be secured in a bun or pony tail.
**4's dress code is transitioning to a lavender leotard this year. The previous color, grape, is also acceptable.
-->Want a full-length class? Standard 60 minute classes in this style are also offered and do not require an additional enrollment.
