The Rolling Meadows Park District prides itself in providing your children with a safe, fun and creative way to express themselves through dance.
Our dance curriculum is based on child development and the needs and abilities of our students. All classes will include barre work, center floor work, across the floor combinations, and short dances. Tiny Dancers, Dance Workshop, and Combo 1 will focus on tap and ballet with the occasional jazz in Combo 1. For tap, we use a leveled curriculum developed by Mr. Al Gilbert. In order for students to register for any level 2 classes or higher, they must meet the necessary requirements or have participated in our Dance Workshop and Combo 1 classes.
In order for students to move up to a higher level in dance, certain requirements are necessary. This allows the flow of class to continue in an appropriate manner. Every year your child will receive a dance "report card." On this report card will be skills that are expected to be mastered before moving on to the next level. Your child’s teacher will assess the students near the end of the year. You will receive this report card along with class placement recommendations for your children. All decisions are made by the teacher and final. Occasionally, a student may show growth throughout the year and suggestions will be made to place them in an appropriate class.
Dance company placement, except for Petite Performers, was by audition only. Dance company members take one intense class per week focusing on all areas of dance. All members must commit to dance year round. Dance company members also have additional opportunities for dance performances, conventions, and competitions throughout the year.
