Give your student the chance to dance their summer away filled with fun memories. At the Dance Loft Plus we have a variety of dance opportunities for all ages and skill levels. The summer is a chance for students to start dancing, try new styles, or catch up on skills so they can progress next fall. Some of the summer offerings even have a performance opportunity.
Tuition for summer classes are offered as walk-in or punch card system. The punch card can range from 4 to 10 classes and may be used by multiple students at once, so bring a friend with you to class! Dress code for all summer classes is athletic wear, shorts and t-shirt, or traditional dancewear. If student is performing in our Summer Showcase, then performance outfits will either be borrowed from the Dance Loft Plus or you will be asked to provide a simple outfit based on easy instructions (such as shades of blue and white, or a pretty dress that is flowy).

Mini-Dancers are classes designed to be similar to a day camp but are only 1.5 hour long and follow the studio’s weekly theme. Class is structured as follows: 30 minute Ballet technique, 30 minute craft or activity, 30 minute of Tap or Jazz technique on a rotating schedule. We believe Ballet to be the foundational knowledge to practically all dance forms which is why we have it each week.
Shoes for tap will be available for borrowing that night or students may wear dressy shoes that make sounds AND STAY ON THEIR FEET. The final couple of weeks we will pull together a ballet choreography for a Summer Showcase.
This beginner class is called an intensive because we are going to spend most of our time together learning the different styles of dance and how to put them together into a choreography. Styles of dance include Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Modern each week we will focus on at least 2 styles. This will not only give them an idea of each style but also cover the fundamentals required in each. It will prepare them for fall classes and help them decide which style they would prefer dancing the whole season.
A selection of shoes are available to borrow or students can wear socks, tennis shoes, or dress shoes depending on the style of dance. This class will be given the opportunity to perform in a Summer Showcase.

EPE is a great time for older continuing students to focus on dance and master harder skills. Ballet and Jazz provide great technique and skills that are a part of all dance. Students learn to push themselves and master their skills during our
technique class and then show those skills through group class periods. During class periods every dancer will learn at least 2 dances and a group dance. We often perform these dances at festivals, nursing homes and our Summer Showcase.
In order to provide the best learning experience for everyone we invite students who we think will strive in this setting to join us. If you have any questions or if you are wondering if your student is ready for EPE please talk to Miss Kim.
