These classes are available at our Columbus studio as well as Desiree’s Dancers in David City. However, in some cases the age or grade level may be different at each studio site.
Classes with requirements for Barb’s School of Dance and Desiree’s Dancers
Choosing to sign up for some of our classes will mean that there will be class requirements. The reason for this is some classes require more technical skills than others and these classes would require a student to take additional classes to boost their skills and enhance their training.
Tap Team: 8th-12th graders by audition only. Tap Team members must take an additional tap class during the weekday.
Irish Step: 6th-12th graders. Irish step students must take an additional tap class during the weekday.
Production class ( 3rd – 7th graders): Students in this class in these grades must also take another jazz class during the week. This would include your tap/jazz combo class.
Production class ( 8th– 12th graders): Students in this class in these grades must take a jazz/tap combo class OR 2 out of 4 of our ballet classes which would include Pointe, Modern, Lyrical or Ballet Technique.
Pointe: Dancers wishing to take point must also be in the Ballet Technique class.
9th-12th grade Lyrical and Modern: If you are choosing one of these classes you must also be in an additional ballet oriented class such as Pointe, Lyrical, Modern, Jazz or Ballet technique. A dancer choosing to take either Modern or Lyrical but is NOT in any other of the above listed classes can do so but will be in the 6th – 7th grade Lyrical or Modern class.
