Ballet classes are offered from a beginner level to advanced. Students are taught proper body placement, body alignment, barre and center floor work, along with across the floor combinations. Beginner classes introduce vocabulary, proper alignment, and classical ballet technique. Advanced classes include adagio and allegro work, and combinations using balance, strength, and style. In addition Pointe is offered. All students are urged to study ballet, as it is the foundation of all other dance styles and facilitates further success in these disciplines.
Dancers will explore the rhythms of tap, from the traditional time steps, paddle & rolls , and shim shams to the hard hitting rhythm tap sounds that have put tap back on the map recently. Ages 6 & up.
Our jazz dance classes are taught in the traditional style of Jazz dance. Dancers will learn stretches to increase flexibility and many different jazz steps, turns, and combinations incorporated into choreography. A fun class set to current, upbeat and age appropriate music. Beginner classes will also explore hip hop and lyric styles of jazz. Ages 6 & up.
Lyrical is a slower style of Jazz which combines elements of Ballet and Jazz based movements. This style of dance focuses on the emotion and story behind a particular piece of music. We use this style of dance to tell a story through our movements.
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.
Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Contemporary dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor.
Hip Hop classes combine street dance with funk and jazz, similar to what you would see in televised dance performances or music videos. Students will learn the importance of isolations and dynamics to execute pop-and-lock and funk movements.
