• 2019 Winter/Spring Session

  • SCROLL FOR SCHEDULE, CLASS DESCRIPTIONS, PRICING, IMPORTANT DATES

     

     2019 WINTER/SPRING ENROLLMENT INFORMATION:

    • Most classes are waitlisted. If you go to register for a class and it's not available, it has a waitlist.  We encourage you to get on it if you are interested.
    • There are still names on the Fall waitlist. As spots become available, we will clear out the Fall waitlist first before moving to the new Winter/Spring waitlist.

    SAVE THE DATES FOR SPRING STAGE SHOW & REHEARSAL:

    • May 4, 5, 9, 10 & 11, 2018 - Orinda Library Auditorium (or possibly Miramonte High School.) To accommodate our larger numbers of dancers this year, we may be creating a separate performance opportunity for our youngest dancers. To be determined.
    2019 WINTER/SPRING SESSION INFORMATION:
    • Same Class Schedule & location as Fall 2018 
    • Preschool classes - Age by date minimums remain the same so that each class progresses together. Some dancers in a 3 y/o class will have turned 4 by now and those who just turned 3 y/o last week are not eligible for the 3 y/o classes, etc.

  • Level Notes for Grade School and Older

    WE'VE SIMPLIFIED OUR CLASS NAMES and PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF:

    • NEW = Never taken a JiM HH class? Great place to start!
    • Beg. = Beginning - Beginning classes for grade school ages assume you might just be starting out or you might have had even a few years of age-appropriate classes. There's no rush to be older than your age! Beginning classes for older ages assume many students will be brand new to the style.
    • Cont. = Continuing - Class will move more quickly than a beginners only class.
    • Exp. = Experienced - Label for classes at older ages for students returning to the style after a break or having complementary experience in a related style. Not recommended for beginners.
    • Int. = Intermediate - Assumes a few years of training and some proficiency.
    • Adv. = Advanced - Proficiency in the style required.
    •  (faster-paced, focused, committed - director placement)

    Recommendations: This year we anticipate having lots of new students in our programming and it may take a few weeks to ensure everyone is in a great class match. Classes are taught based on recommendations and the approximate age/grade for classes and the below is subjective based on experience, ability, and personality. Please sign up based on the suggested grade, age and experience level you see on the schedule and we will make changes based on our professional opinion. Each class presents a great challenge and learning experience for everyone.  Whether they are a leader, or someone who likes to follow along, we set them up to feel accomplished and will challenge each student individually.
