Ballet / Tap Dance (Co-Ed)
We take pride in providing exciting, modest, and technique-driven Ballet and Tap dance programs!
Our ultimate goal, after each season, is to leave dancers with a feeling of accomplishment and the ability to perform confidently in front of an audience. We expand on these goals by teaching new life skills, such as handling situations involving team cooperation and hard work.
Our Ballet / Tap classes will cover skills in both ballet and tap. Dancers will do a short warm-up, review essential skills in both dance styles, and practice their current routines. To end this class, dancers will talk about their favorite part of the class, complete a goodbye dance, and receive a sticker and any handouts for the week.
Ballet/Tap 1 (Co-Ed):
3-4 Year olds • 30 Minutes
Ballet/Tap 1 is for older Pre-Schoolers who are 3-4 year old girls and boys that are nearly ready to start Kindergarten. The music for this class is fun and familiar to them and expands on the techniques learned by our younger classes. We do some warming up, stretching, progressions across the room (including skips, kicks and jumps), super fun basic tap skills, and counting. They will learn steps including toe-heel, heel-toe, stamps, and shuffles as well as making as much noise as they can in our fun, safe and educational environment.
Ballet/Tap 2 (Co-Ed):
5-6 Year olds • 40 Minutes
Ballet/Tap 2 is for 5-6 year old girls and boys. Students will be reviewing and learning the basics of tap and ballet technique. They will be building up their sense of rhythm and their confidence so that they are even more comfortable and prepared during performances. The musics for this class will have them dancing to popular, age-appropriate music and getting LOUD!
Ballet/Tap 3 (Co-Ed):
7-9 Year olds • 1 Hour
Ballet/Tap 3 is for 7-9 year old girls and boys. This class will be focusing on improving dancers skills especially for those that are looking to join our Company or Pre-Company programs or looking to continue their recreational dance career. Students will focus on Ballet and Tap skills as these fundamentals of dance continue to grow with them. They will learn steps such as a buffalo, cramp roll, sauté jumps and grande Jete’s.

The Winter Performance is a dance production that features our Company North Crest Dancers. All recreational dance students are invited to perform as guests in two dances. All dancers in each style & level will dance together. Ex. All Ballet/Tap 1 classes will combine and dance on stage together for a separate ballet dance and a tap dance.
The Spring Performance is a dance show that highlights and showcases our Recreational Dancers. They will perform in three dance numbers at this show. We keep group numbers on stage to 12 so that all dancers are able to show off how special they are! Company North Crest will also perform several numbers; however, this show is focused on our recreational performers. The spring performance rehearsal takes the place of your final class for the month of May and choreography is again included in the curriculum. All dancers are expected to participate in the spring recital. Performance is a large part of dancing and many students thrive off of the idea of putting on a costume and getting in front of an audience.
*It Takes 2 Pea dancers are only asked to participate in the spring recital. An adult over 16 is required to join them on stage.
Summer Splash is our summer event where students show off what they have learned in gymnastics and dance and North Crest takes the opportunity to say “Thank You” to its customers by hosting a small reception after the event for the participants and their families and friends.
