Tribal Belly Dance

Tribal Style Belly Dance is accredited to Jamila Salimpour who fostered a fusion of costumes and folkloric dance styles from the Banjara gypsies of Rajasthan and began teaching what she knew and performing all over California and the West Coast. Using traditional folkloric dance elements and costumes inspired by traditional and ethnographic traditions, she presented on stage through Bal Anat a colorful dance company which included musicians, singers and dancers to create a “souk” or almost circus feel. Taking what she herself had learned
from native dancers from Morocco, Algeria, Turkey, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who were dancing in the United States, she began to catalogue “belly dance movement” and began creating a basic repertoire terminology which is still the basis for Tribal Style and American Tribal Style repertoire.

  • jazz

Click here for a class schedule.

Jazz

The jazz syllabus is an extensive study in the dance form and prepares the student for performance. Each class is geared specifically toward the respective levels, each focusing on the technique of the dance form. Most jazz classes dedicate the first six months solely to dance technique while the remaining six months of the dance year focuses on putting technique and applications into a dance combination.

Due to the ballet origins of jazz technique, all jazz students of levels II and above are required to maintain at least one hour of ballet training per week. Ballet requirement may be fulfilled in scheduled NCDA ballet classes or at any accredited ballet school. (see studio policies regarding ballet requirements and validation). Noncompliance with this ballet requirement will result in the withdrawal of the student from any jazz II level class and above until ballet requirement has been met and student is in regular attendance. Placement and advancement of any student is at the sole discretion of North County DanceArts, Inc.

  • predance

Pre-Dance And KinderCombo

Pre-dance classes are designed for children from the age of 3 years to 7 years of age. Pre-dance classes are combination classes that teach basic dance positions, steps and exercises of the three dance disciplines: ballet, jazz and tap.

North County DanceArts provides pre-dance classes that accommodate the readiness of the student to learn. The very basic of the pre-dance classes begin with a minimal structure base with subsequent pre-dance classes of graduating advancement of classroom structure and discipline.

The most advanced pre-dance level , kindercombo, is a structured and disciplined learning environment designed to take the young dancer into beginning levels with recognition of basic steps and terms . Basic steps, exercises and terms are taught in a loving, fun and playful way.

All students of ages 6 years to 8 years wishing to enter the North County DanceArts dance program at the beginning levels are highly encouraged to complete North County DanceArts’ pre-dance courses prior to enrollment. Placement and advancement of any student is at the sole discretion of North County DanceArts, Inc.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop dance refers to non-classical dance styles, mainly street dance styles, primarily danced to hip hop music, or that have evolved as a part of the hip hop culture.

By its widest definition, it can include a wide range of styles such as breaking, popping, locking and krumping, and even house dance. It can also include the many styles simply labeled as hip hop, old school hip hop (or hype), hip hop new style and freestyle.

  • contemporary

Click here for a class schedule.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is a genre of concert dance that employs compositional philosophy, rather than choreography, to guide un-choreographed movement. It uses dance techniques and methods found in ballet, modern dance and postmodern dance, and it also draws from other philosophies of movement that are outside the realm of classical dance technique.

The term “contemporary dance” is sometimes used to describe dance that is not classical jazz or traditional folk/cultural dance. The hallmark of contemporary dance is an awareness of the limitations of form. Sub-genres recently defined by dance critics include non-dance, conceptual dance and pedestrian contemporary.

  • tap1

Click here for a class schedule.

Tap

Tap dancing combines dance traditions from Europe and Africa. It is a dance of strong rhythms and relies almost totally on footwork. The feet become musical instruments marking out complex rhythms with the heel and the toe.

Tap dancing taught at North County DanceArts concentrates on the low to the ground and precise style of tap called “rhythm tap”, largely made infamous through the old masters of tap such as Eddie Brown. Since the teaching of tap dancing can vary greatly in style and speed, all students not currently enrolled in the North County DanceArts tap classes are required to be evaluated by the instructor prior to entry. Placement and advancement of any student is at the sole discretion of North County DanceArts, Inc.

  • ballet

Click here for a class schedule.

Ballet

The ballet syllabus currently offered by North County DanceArts is a condensed and accelerated course of study of ballet based on the classical Russian school of training. This course of study has been developed to give the dancer a good basic knowledge in the principles, techniques and terms of this dance form. These courses have proved excellent for beginning dancers through professional levels. Many class levels have been recommended to ballet students as companion
classes to their current ballet studies.

All ballet classes are technique based classes, therefore, soft slippers are used. Due to the nature of the accelerated study, pre-pointe and pointe instruction is only offered as a standard part of this ballet syllabus in levels IIA and IIB. Only those students in current attendance of regular ballet studies of North County DanceArts in a level IIB or above or in current attendance at any certified ballet school will be considered to use pointe shoes in these intermediate/advanced classes. Those students meeting the qualifications to study pre-pointe and/or pointe is at the sole discretion of North County DanceArts’ instructors and/or directors. Placement and advancement of any student is at the sole discretion of North County DanceArts, Inc. See Class Levels…

Policies

North County DanceArts, Inc. is dedicated to the care and nurturing of the dedicated dance student. Tuition for classes at North County DanceArts, Inc is an annual (school year September through August) tuition policy that may be paid in full at time of student enrollment September through December (CASH or CHECK payments only – an approximate 10% savings and no worries of late fees) or on a monthly installment payment system. Annual tuition is based on a tuition that is amortized over eleven months, each month averaging four weeks.

The NCDA annual tuition is a long term payment policy. Students electing to pay in monthly installments must continue monthly payments for the remainder of the dance year scheduled payments (September through July).

Any student wishing to discontinue dance instruction during the year may do so by notifying North County DanceArts, Inc. in writing in the form of NCDA’s Notice to Terminate Form no less than 30 days prior to the 28th day of any calendar month and before the last quarter of the dance year (May-July), thereby releasing the student from further tuition obligations. Students shall be responsible for the balance of the annual tuition if discontinuing services in the last quarter (May-July) of our dance year. No exceptions will be made.

Monthly tuition payments are due on or before the 1st day of each calendar month. A late charge of $15.00 will be assessed after the 10th day of the month against the current tuition due and any previous outstanding balances. NORTH COUNTY DANCEARTS, INC. recognizes that some months will provide the student with five weeks of instruction for the month. These additional days afforded by the calendar year will not be charged as extra classes to the student and will be included in that month’s monthly tuition. However, NORTH COUNTY DANCEARTS, INC. DOES NOT PROVIDE MAKE-UP CLASSES FOR THOSE “EXTRA” CLASSES DUE TO STUDENT NON-ATTENDANCE. North County DanceArts, Inc. does not invoice except in cases where account is delinquent. Acceptable forms of payment are cash ,personal check, debit/credit card  or students may elect to be placed on an automatic debit/credit card payment system thereby eliminating worry of late fees.  For those students opting for the automatic payment plan, a fee of $20.00 per incident will be charged to student’s account for reasons such as insufficient funds or credit card charge revocation.  In these cases, students MUST reconcile any outstanding balances, including any late charges, bank charges, etc. incurred by North County DanceArts, Inc. due to such incidents within a five (5) day period from time of incident reporting by financial institution.

Annual Registration/Insurance fees are charged per student and are due upon initial enrollment and each year in January. Annual Registration/Insurance Fees are due in January for all students registered in classes prior to October 1st and all new students registering after January 1st.

Our weekday morning adult students may elect to pay “by the class” (only in open adult classes scheduled for Monday through Friday mornings with exception to classes that may “close”). By paying “by the class” you are not making a monthly commitment to classes and are free of the worries of “make-up” classes and studio closures. Adult students that elect to pay “by the class”for these morning open classes may not attend any other classes on a “by the class” basis. For all classes, with the exception of the adult open classes noted above, students must be “registered” and pay per North County DanceArts, Inc.’s Tuition Policies and Rates.

General Policy Statements:

  • All students must sign in before taking class.
  • Please arrive early. In respect to other students, to avoid disruption of the class, students arriving more than ten minutes late may be refused admittance to the class.
  • No refunds.
  • Non-continuing students MUST notify the office in writing in the form of NCDA’s Notice of Termination Form.  Notification MUST be received by NCDA no less than 30 days prior to the 28th day of any calendar month and before the last quarter (June-August) of our dance year, thereby releasing the student from further tuition obligations. Students shall be responsible for the balance of the annual tuition if discontinuing services in the last quarter (June-August) of the NCDA dance year. No exceptions will be made.
  • In the case of only a single student in attendance of a regularly scheduled class; the instructor may choose to instruct a 30 minute private lesson in lieu of the regularly scheduled length of class (designed for more than one student).
  • NCDA adheres to a NO CELL PHONE Policy.  Students attending class MUST turn off and put away all cell phones and electronic devices while participating in class.  This includes all rest/water breaks.  Students that are tardy to class or leave class to use a cell phone or other electronic device during class without the explicit consent of the Instructor will be removed from class immediately.
  • Participation in studio classes is at the sole discretion of North County DanceArts, Inc. North County DanceArts, Inc. reserves the right to refuse services or merchandise to anyone, at anytime, for any reason.

Closed Classes

In order to maintain the highest level of dance instruction, it sometimes becomes necessary to limit the number of students per class or “close” the class. This means that any student not in current and consistent attendance in that class prior to the “closed” status may not be able to participate until space becomes available.

IMPORTANT: Students attending a “closed” class must be registered for that class and maintain monthly tuition payments for that class. If you wish to preserve your spot in that class, monthly tuition must continue to be paid – even if you do not attend.

Dance Requirements

  • Intermediate and Advanced students MUST be enrolled in a BALLET class.
  • Ballet students receiving instruction in pre-pointe or pointe MUST particpate in one (1) hour of ballet technique scheduled prior to scheduled pre-pointe/pointe class
  • Advanced Jazz students MUST be enrolled in two (2) Advanced Jazz class and one (1) Advanced Turns & Leaps technique class
  • Advancement is determined by the student’s instructor. He or she has specific criteria that need to be met prior to a student being promoted.

North County DanceArts and its staff and instructors reserve the right to remove any individual from a dance class or the studio premises if that individual’s behavior is disruptive and not conducive to the learning atmosphere of the studio.
