Creative Dance Classes


Creative Dance Classes

Our creative dance classes focus on the development of the whole child. Dancers develop technique through traditional modern and ballet exercises. In addition, they exercise their creativity and imagination as they explore the elements of dance through age appropriate movement. Dancers are given opportunities to improvise, engage in creative problem-solving, and grow in cognitive, social, and emotional ways as they interact in each class. All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians to expose dancers to a variety of musical genres. Kindergarten and older classes will participate in one proscenium performance each year at Kingsbury Hall as part of the annual spring Tanner Dance Studio Show.

Dress Requirements

Dancers need to wear clothing that allows the instructor to properly see alignment in order to prevent injuries and incorrect habits.

Typically, creative dance attire for girls is a leotard and leggings or dance pants, and attire for boys is a close-fitting t-shirt with dance pants or athletic shorts. If you have a non-binary or gender fluid dancer, please have them choose the attire with which they feel the most comfortable. Dancers should be able to move freely without restriction.

Please no bare midriffs.

All hair should be pulled back and secured.

Classes will dance in bare feet.

Parent-Tot Dance Classes

The Parent-Tot class focuses on the joy of moving and the exploration of creative ideas through movement.  The class includes age-appropriate technique or exercises for the whole body.  It introduces the preschool child to ways to move through space like galloping, skipping, sliding, running, leaping, jumping and hopping.  Dancers explore shape and space, rhythm and songs, and many forms of literature.  Teachers use preschool curriculum springboards that they creatively weave into the class.  All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians.  Children move with a parent or other caregiver, independently and with the group.

If your child needs to change classes due to their birthday, please call (801) 581-7374 during our spring registration, and we can transfer them into the class that works with your schedule.
