Our Preschool classes provide an introduction to dance that includes tap, pre-ballet and pre-jazz. The class meets twice a week for 45 minutes each session. The curriculum is age-appropriate with attention to the development of coordination, cognitive ability, listening skills, responsibility and overall dance class etiquette. This class will learn and perform two dances in our annual production at the end of the year.

Our Combo Class is the next level of training following the Preschool Class. This class focuses primarily on the basics of ballet, the beginning of jazz techniques such as simple isolations and sharp movements and the basic fundamentals of tap. The main objective is to increase the students knowledge of terminology and technique in Ballet, Tap and Jazz. Students who have danced previously will have the opportunity to expand on their knowledge of the basic fundamentals of dance. This class meets once a week for 1.5 hours a week and the students will learn tap and jazz. Two dances will be taught and performed by the dancers at our annual production at the end of the year.
Any color/style of dancewear is acceptable. A dance bag is required.

Our ballet classes concentrate on correct placement and classical ballet technique. The class structure consists of barre work, followed by center floor work and ballet conditioning for the advanced classes. Students will focus on and develop important ballet skills such as strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, poise, and musicality. Students will grow technically and acquire artistry all the while learning ballet terminology. As this class is a technique class only, a dance will not be performed at the end of the year.

Our dance year runs September-June. All PE registration is now closed due to recital preparation, dances have been started and costumes have been ordered.
90% of our communication with our parents is through email. We communicate through email because most passed out bulletins never seem to make it home with the kids. Email is more efficient and paper is not wasted. We will email out any new updates or information you need to know throughout the year. We also post some new updates on Facebook. Please add Pure Energy to your contacts so that the emails are not blocked by spam.
Students are not to be left at the studio for excessive time periods before or after their classes. Please contact the studio if you think you will be more than 15 minutes late to pick up your child.

All payments and any other dance correspondence must be handled at the dance studio. All PE teachers have a day job as well as a family and personal time that we are dedicated to. It’s very important that we keep the dance business outside of our daily job to ensure we are giving a 100% to our family and employer. Payments will not be accepted by teachers outside of the studio because they can easily be lost or turned in late. You must make your payment either at the studio or online.

PE takes pride in our dancers and the recital at the end of our dance year. It takes months of preparation and hard work to put on a great show. We begin the year teaching our dancers the dance skills needed for their level. In December, we start the recital dances and begin teaching them how to be performers and entertaining their audience the best of their ability. It takes a lot for a dancer to get on a stage in front of 1,000+ people and perform their routine with a smile and enthusiasm. It is normal for some dancers to experience anxiety about performing on stage. Please allow our teachers to help them work through these feelings. Our goal is to create confident, strong dancers from our 3 year olds to our high school dancers.
The recital is normally held the 3rd weekend of June on a Saturday night, depending on the availability of the auditorium. There is a mandatory full dress rehearsal the Friday before the show. Dress rehearsal is mandatory.
A Recital Fee will be due in the spring. Included with your RF is one recital DVD. Please read your policy and procedures for further details.
TriCoast Photography is the studio's photographer.
The majority of our classes require two costumes for the recital. Costumes will range from $75-$85 per costume. Everything your dancer will need for the recital will be included with your costumes. A non-refundable costume deposit will be due November 30th. The remainder of costume fees will be due January 31st. If a student is withdrawn from the studio after costumes have been ordered and deposits made, you are still responsible for the balance due on the costume on January 31. No costume fees will be refunded, even if a student withdraws from the studio. If a costume deposit is not received by the due date then the child’s costumes will not be ordered.
Please refrain from withdrawing a student once costumes have been ordered and recital dances are started. The teacher has to choreograph the entire dance again when a student is taken out. Please speak to the dance teacher if there are issues with your dancer’s attendance in class.
Pure Energy loves the opportunity to step out into our community and spread the Christmas cheer! Each class will learn one short Christmas dance to perform in November and December at various local holiday festivals in Brazoria County. We will begin workinging on our Christmas dances in October.
Each group will require one Christmas costume for the performances. Each costume will run approximately $50-$60 each. You will be billed out in October for your costume(s) and have a due date of October 31st.
