Dancers Ages 7-9
Confident, Strong, Family.
Our A-E Combos and Stars Programs offer classes in the styles of ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, musical theater, acro, lyrical, and performance company for dancers ages 7-9 years.
Dancers in our A-E Combo and Stars Programs follow a progressive curriculum that lays a foundation of strong technique through all styles. Improv games and choreography in class keep our dancers engaged and continue to help build their love for being at the dance studio.
A-E Combos and Stars Programs dancers participate twice a semester in Wingman for Dance activities during their regular dance class. Wingman for Dance is a team-bonding and trust building curriculum that inspires dancers to be empathetic, courageous, and inclusive young leaders.

NOTES & REQUIRED SHOES
All A-E Combos and Stars Program classes are drop-off only. Parents and caregivers are able to view class via our livestream TVs in each lobby.
Dancewear is HIGHLY encouraged for all E&E Dance Company classes, but not required. Dancewear can be any color, any style. We believe that the more comfortable our dancers are, the better they learn. Not every dancer is comfortable in a leotard and tights, and we don’t want any dancer going through class more concerned about their dancewear than their dance steps. We also believe in the freedom to express yourself through the styles you choose and the colors you wear. Our dancers are allowed, and encouraged, to wear whatever colors make them feel happy and confident.
