Children in Music & Movement must have an adult in attendance each week in class, fully participating and aiding their child where and when necessary. This class is designed as an introduction to ballet, tap, and basic mat work, with a heavy focus on movement and music. It is very free form, and some children will follow along and participate while others will play and dance around on their own and that is OKAY. This class is supposed to be EXPLORATORY and FUN. Leotard, tights, and ballet slippers are required. Tap shoes are highly encouraged.

Beginner dance classes are designed for children ready to explore ballet, tap, and basic tumbling skills. Students in Beginner dance should be confident enough to come up to our dance space without an adult. There will be weekly lessons in classical dance instruction, but still lots of fun games and activities each week. Leotard, tights, ballet slippers and tap shoes are required.

Intermediate dance class has been designed for the student ready to take dance to the next level. We will be spending our time focusing on ballet, tap, jazz, and more advanced tumbling skills. Leotard, convertible tights, ballet slippers and tap shoes are required.

Dancers should have long-sleeved, plain, black leotards (or black pants and black tee shirt), pink tights (convertible for Beginner and Intermediate), pink ballet slippers, and black tap shoes. A ballet skirt is optional. Hair should always be pulled back.

TAP SHOES: Please replace the ribbon with black elastic to make it easier for the students to change from ballet shoes to tap shoes. We have found that the best places to get dance attire is online at www.discountdance.com or www.dancewearsolutions.com. All That Jazz in Lakeville (508-946-5333), Dancer’s Edge in Taunton (508-822-0011) or Body & Sole Dancewear in Dartmouth (508-999-2003) are all great places locally to get them, too.

Please note the 10-session dance schedule:

*********************************************************************************

We ask that participants of Music and Movement have ONE ADULT ONLY attend class with their child. No other children or adults will be allowed in the dance room. Adults of Beginner and Intermediate dancers will wait for their dancer in the waiting area on the first floor.

Any cancellations of school for the ORR school district will also result in cancellation of dance classes. If Miss Teah is unable to make a class there will be a substitute or class will be cancelled via email and MAC Dance Academy Parent Info Facebook Group (please request to join). Any cancellations will result in a make up class following the completion of the 10-week program (That date will also be emailed). Parent Watch Days and Recitals will not be rescheduled.
