IMPULSE DANCE CENTER WAS VOTED THE 2012 AND 2013 READERS CHOICE FOR DANCE STUDIOS IN NATICKJoin us to explore the magical word of dance. Located in downtown Natick for over 25 years, Impulse Dance Center has been providing a happy, age appropriate place to study dance. With classes offered pre-school through Repertory level, our professional and nurturing faculty is committed to providing a technically sound dance education to both the recreational dancer and the dancer who is seeking a career in dance. We also offer classes for adults so that the universal language of dance can be enjoyed by all. Both of our large air-conditioned studio spaces have wooden floors for dance safety and are equipped with state of the art sound systems. With all the charm of a historical building Impulse provides a warm, comfortable place to pursue the art of dance.
We at Impulse Dance Center are dedicated to providing our students with a complete, technically sound dance education. Once a dancer moves out of the children's classes, we must place students in classes that are most suited to their technical ability. THIS MEANS THAT A STUDENT MIGHT NOT BE PLACED WITH THEIR FRIENDS. Dance classes are not a social function. As dance educators committed to providing the best for each of our students, it is critical to master the technique of one level before moving to the next. That is what will build strong, confident dancers who will not lose interest in dance because they are frustrated in a class inappropriate for their ability. Among other requirements an important prerequisite for any Advanced or Repertory Technique class in Jazz, Modern or Lyrical is previous and concurrent Ballet training. Ballet is the backbone of all dance. If these levels are your goal start Ballet training as early as possible.
An overview of levels after leaving Children's Combination classes is as follows:
- Level I, IB, I/II - All beginning levels of dance
- Level I, Level I Advanced, Level II, Beginner/Intermediate - All elementary levels of dance.
- Level III, Intermediate, Intermediate II, *Advanced Intermediate *Ballet III - All Intermediate Levels of Dance * Has an Attendance Policy.
- Advanced Level - Selective and entry is by invitation only. Has certain prerequisites and an Attendance Policy.
- Repertory Level - Very selective and entry is by invitation only. Very specific prerequisites are associated with invitation into this level. This level has a strict attendance policy.
All of our instructors are anxious and excited about sharing the world of dance. It is important to us at Impulse that each student has a successful dance experience. With proper class placement, dance technique and good self-esteem will flourish.
Yours in Dance,
