We would like to thank the families of Citrus Heights Dance Academy for supporting the growth and development of our dance training program. Our studio is located at Sylvan Marketplace and we offer: Pre-Ballet for ages 3-7; Tap/Jazz Combo for ages 5-7; Ballet, Tap, Jazz for ages 7-12; Ballet / Contemporary and Tap for Teens / Adults. It is important to us that our students start their training with a classical foundation. This provides them with the strength and confidence needed for higher levels and performance opportunities. We are regularly adding new classes in order to maintain small class sizes. Our dress code has been developed to ensure that all students will present themselves in modest, age appropriate attire and music selections will also be chosen with discretion.
Students are invited to participate in the Summer & Winter Shows. These are uniquely created to spark a love for dance through the art of storytelling and entertain with a sampling from a variety of Musical Productions. Teachers choreograph original works to highlight the ability level of each individual class. Summer Show themes have included: Circa 1910, A Sailor’s Dream, The Jazz Movement, Cinderella, Munchkinland, Best of the 30’s, Western Symphony, Pinocchio and Alice in Wonderland. Winter show 2015 will be The Nutcracker & Christmas at the Hop.
With Ballet being the foundational discipline of all dance styles, we place a high priority on this form of training in our school. The best way for young dancers to stay enthusiastic for this discipline of precision, is to involve them in the creative storytelling process and performance experience that a full length classical Ballet has to offer. Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre and Contemporary give dancers exposure to more stylized dance. These forms truly come to life when taught in combination with music from different eras and allows students to learn how dance styles have evolved with each!
