The Springdale Ballet and Dance Academy’s mirrored ballet studio is conveniently located down the hall from the ice rink, and is an integral part of the figure skating training program. Experienced teachers with extensive training who have enjoyed successful careers with a variety of respected companies teach the classically oriented curriculum. Classes from Pre-Ballet through Ballet II/Intermediate and Tap are offered Thursday through Saturday in two semesters from September to June.
A combination package of skating group lessons and ballet is available. Dance classes are open to everyone, but group lesson skaters and figure skaters are particularly encouraged to sign up for these classes. We highly recommend the academy’s dance instruction which is especially designed for skaters. An important component in the development of figure skaters, ballet builds strength and flexibility and increases a skater’s awareness of carriage, upper body movement and artistic expression.
Private dance lessons may be arranged with our instructors. Ballet teachers may also work with a skater and their coach to refine the choreography of their freestyle or free dance programs.
Registration forms for dance classes are available in the lobby of Stamford Twin Rinks. You may also call 968-9000, ext. 16 or download the registration form below.
