NEW NIDC Levels Information
At NIDC, we pride ourselves on creating the best learning environment possible for dancers of all ages, abilities, and goal sets. This is why we have decided to restructure our dance class leveling system, starting with the 2020-2021 dance season.
Our beginner classes will be strictly age-based as of September 1st of that given year (similar to academic schools), and our “Level” classes (1-4) will be both age and ability based.
Click on Image to the right for details about the leveling for each style of dance.
Please look out for a new level placement on your dancers spring evaluation report from their teachers–these reports will indicate what “new” level they will be placed in for the upcoming season!
These classes are barre-based classes using a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training combined with high reps of small range of motion movements.We will incorporate some resistance band, light dumbbells and body resistance work at times too.
What is this barre, we are taking of? It is the free standing or mounted ballet barre seen in dance studios. Come give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
We end with a 15-20 minute yoga inspired cool down. It is very relaxing but yet very effective total body stretching. This helps to lengthen those muscles as to not make them “bulky”. And did I mention it is very relaxing??? LEARN MORE>>>>
