The Diamond Center has been home to our dance classes in the Burnsville area for many years! Remember to check out the completely remodeled dance studio for our classes. We are so excited to be a part of this wonderful program and to start teaching classes this fall! Whether your child is interested in recreational or performance focused classes we will have it all!
In Burnsville we offer many of our popular classes including, Wish Upon a Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz and Tap classes during the school year and super fun Musical Theater Camps in the summer. You can take just one session or join our performance classes that end the year with a full recital!
Wish Upon a Ballet is a preschool ballet program created by Gina Mayer. It starts with a popular children’s story or ballet and incorporates songs, dances and creative movement games that go along with its theme. Each session focuses on a new theme so students can continue to learn and grow with our ballet program from age 3 to 6. Students learn real ballet steps and class procedures while developing their musical expression and creativity. Little bodies will grow in strength and flexibility and minds will expand and feel free to create! Each session ends with an informal performance for families.
Our Jazz, Hip Hop and Tap Classes will be sure to keep students active. The students will learn warm-ups such as stretching, isolations and across the floor exercises as well as dances to their favorite songs! We provide the same quality instruction that you would receive at a professional dance school. All of our instructors are energetic dance instructors and performers and love sharing their skills with children. Students will learn steps to keep them busy all year. Dance is such a great outlet for children. Not only will they increase their strength, flexibility and motor skills but they get to experience what they are capable of. This increases their self-esteem! Let’s not forget to mention coming together as a group and moving as a team is fun and rewarding! Every session ends with a performance for families.
Our Musical Theater Camps focus on a favorite movie, musical or story. The students will learn scenes, songs and dances and put together their own show! We provide the same quality instruction that you would receive at a professional theater school. All of our instructors are professional theater instructors and performers and love sharing their theater skills with children. Students will learn how to put together a show from start to finish. This includes read throughs, blocking scenes, learning music and choreography, how to use their bodies and voices effectively, character development, not to mention teamwork and much more! Every camp ends with a performance for families.
All this with the ease of a community program! You can take just one class or camp or several! The choice is yours. It is so easy for your child to try out a class and then decide if it is something they want to pursue. We feel honored to start your child’s growth in the arts.
