CLASS DESCRIPTIONS AND ATTIRE NEEDED:

Creative Movement:  This class focuses on basic locomotor steps and beginning ballet steps.  Structured games and improvisational exercises are designed to inspire movement and rhythm in small children.  Students will participate in interactive activities, while learning to love dance.

Hello to Ballet/Tap:  One ½ hour each of ballet and tap.  Ballet consists of working on basic locomotor steps, positions of the arms and feet, correct alignment, beginning barre work, short combinations, and exercises designed to encourage and spark freedom in moving and love for dance.  Tap will work on basic steps, simple rhythms, and short combinations. ( This year adults are also welcome to register for this class!)

Modern:  This class is a fusion of Ballet and Modern dance techniques. Dancers will learn Modern dance technique from Modern dancer/choreographer icon, Merce Cunningham.  The aim is to create sufficient body alignment, movement patterns, and freedom through phrases in the center and across space.  This class gives the dancer the opportunity to develop various movement skills/abilities and perform a piece with a strong message to their audience.

NEW:  Ability Unlimited: We are looking at dance in a whole new light. The class offered is for students ages 9-18 with visual impairment, Hearing Impairment, Wheelchair Bound, and Physical Challenges. This program is a great way for children with special needs to get involved in an extracurricular activity while improving motor skills by enhancing mobility and muscle coordination, self-confidence, and socialization.​

Youth Ballet:  This class is designed to work specifically on the French style of Ballet technique.  We will work at the barre, in center, and throughout space with adagio, petit and grande allegro phrases.  Students will learn proper use of turn-out, port de bras, and elegance through space.

Youth Jazz:  A class working on locomotor steps, body isolations, positions of the arms and feet, correct alignment, short combinations, improvisation and exercises designed to encourage the combination of how we feel and dance. 

Dance Attire:  Ballet, tap, or jazz shoes are preferred. Socks may be worn for ballet if need be. Modern dance is danced barefoot!  Children wear any color tights and a leotard for ballet and creative movement. Jazz pants, shorts or leggings may be worn with a tank top or t-shirt for jazz and tap. Child tights, leotards and shoes are often found at Shopko, Payless, Wal-mart and/or Target stores. Many online sources are available as well.  (www.discountdance.com)

LOLA has a limited number of dance wear and shoes for borrowing.

Meet LOLA’s 2018 Youth Dance Program Instructor, Jennifer French!

I started dancing at the age of 2 ½ and started assisting/ teaching classes at the age of 13 and have enjoyed teaching ever since. I am going to school at the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater to become a physical therapist with a dance minor. While at Whitewater I have had the privilege to take part in the first wheelchair dance class offered in the UW system. I have been able to take a teacher course with Axis Dance Company, the nation’s most acclaimed ensembles of disabled and non-disabled dancers, out of Oakland California. I have also started an all ability dance class in the Whitewater Parks and Rec dance program. I love sharing my passion for dance and the best way to do this is to teach.
