Dance Classes

Mission
Our goal is to offer a variety of dance classes to students from preschool age thru adult. We believe it is important for students to become involved in fun, physical activities and to learn the proper posture and techniques required for various types of dance.

Enrollment
Our dance classes for the school year run from August 1, 2016 thru May 26, 2017. Enrollment is open to the public April 18, 2016 thru November 30, 2016.  These classes will perform in our annual Spring Dance Recital in May, 2017 at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium at UAA.

Enrollment for our "January Start" classes is open from December 1, 2016.  These classes are non-recital classes, but students will receive a free ticket to attend the Spring Recital.  If students want to perform in the Spring recital, they need to enroll in class before the November 30th deadline.

Ballet  
Our Angelina Ballerina program is specially designed for the preschool dancer and lasts 45 minutes; Kindergarten Ballet  is also 45 minutes for 5-6yr olds & Ballet for 6-7, 7-8, 8-10, 9-11yrs & Ballet for Teens are 1 hour classes that include instruction on technique and progressions of movement. 

Anchorage Music & Dance Center is proud to include the American Ballet Theatre®National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development.  The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.  Pre-Primary through Level 3 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Emily Gomulak, who has successfully completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive in Levels Pre-Primary through 3 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.

We feel that this curriculum is a natural progression for our Angelina Ballerina students. Classes will continue to focus on building a solid foundation in ballet technique with an emphasis on proper placement and safe progressions of movement.  All while remaining sensitive to the developmental needs of younger dancers and having fun!"
