Wee Dance to You

Ms. Robin Hahn

 

Hello!  I’m Miss. Robin and I have been teaching dance for over 20 years. I go to different schools all over the San Antonio area to teach dance classes.

 

Here at St. Andrew's, I teach a 45-minute ballet/tap combination class.

Ballet helps develop balance and self-confidence, while tap helps to foster rythm and foot coordination. Music accompanies all the activities from the up-beat tap exercises to the slow, graceful ballet butterflies and prince and princess walk.  Both girls and boys enjoy this class, which is designed for ages 3 and older.  

 

Classes are held every Thursday at 9:30 for ballet/tap and 10:30 for ballet/jazz. We have two performances, one at Christmas time and one in May.  Please contact me at 213-1584 (call or text) for more information.

Not everyone wants to be a ballet dancer. However, ballet teaches you lots of things which are useful for other activities:

- balance
- flexibility
- strength
- fitness
- precision of movement
- good concentration
- good posture
- how to listen to music
- confidence
- and don't forget ballet is simply really good fun

A lot of sports players learn ballet for many of these reasons and it has been used to train rugby, football & basketball players, fencers, ice skaters and martial arts fighters.
