Kiddie Kombo is a 40 minute class of Tap, Ballet and Tumbling designed for the 3-6 yr old child. Children may start the class at 2.5 yrs if ready.

  • KKI is a class for 3-5 year olds. It is an introduction to dance which includes Tap, Ballet and Tumbling.
  • KKII is a class for 5-6 year olds which is the next step in our program. It includes Tap, Ballet and Tumbling.

Tap

The tap portion of the class is approximately 15-20 minutes. The following basic coordination concepts are repeated in class weekly: right and left, up and down, heel and toe, side to side. Children will learn such steps as Knee bounces, flash trick step, boogie woogies, rock and roll, brush steps, knees and clap, marches, marching turns, jump out, jump in, heel push and toe heel walks. We will learn many song and dance routines using all these new steps. Level II Kombo students will begin basic tap steps such as shuffles and shuffle combinations, flaps and flap combinations.

Ballet

In the 10-15 minute ballet portion of the class the children will be taught ballet exercises and French terminology. The following is a list of the steps introduced: Plies (to bend), releve (to rise), tendues (to stretch/point), bourres, (on tip toes), chasses, arabesques and curtsys. Children will learn first and second positions of the feet in level I and third through fifth positions in level II. Other steps include: ballet walks, hopping, jumping, skipping, and turns. Arm positions are taught and a stretching floor exercise where children will learn how to point and flex the feet is also incorporated into the class. These ballet steps will also be put to fun dance routines and exercises.

Tumbling

The last 5-10 minutes of class are spent rolling on the floor mats. Forward and backward rolls, frog jumps, bunny jumps, log rolls, inch worms, wheel barrows, crab walks, and bear walks, monkey jumps and cartwheels are a few of the beginning tumbling tricks we will learn.

What to Wear

Shoes – If you wish to purchase tap and ballet shoes The Dance Affair has a full supply of the new and used shoes that we prefer for the children. If you do purchase the shoes elsewhere I prefer the black buckle or velcro tap shoes and pink ballet shoes with out the strings for my KK students. If you do buy the tap shoes with bows, please insert elastic into the shoes to replace the bows. I do sell the elastic for the tap shoes if you need it or you can buy elastic at the fabric store. Children should dress in dance attire (leotard and tights for girls, white t-shirt and black dance pants for boys) for the class. Please no large or long tutus.

We do not accept the ballet shoes with strings as trade ins. Only Revolution brand ballet shoe trade-ins accepted

If you have any questions please call Erica at 243-4834.
