Is a brilliant class for our youngest dancers that trains the students in basic ballet technique and allows them to explore the exciting world of Acrobatic Arts. Dancers will do 30 min of ballet and 15 of Acro.
Body alignment, strength, strong technique, foot articulation, grace, and control are just a few of the things focused on. Ballet is the basic dance form for all styles of dance because of the strong focus on technique. Classes begin at the barre, progress to the center, and then move to across the floor combinations. Correct ballet terminology is
stressed in all levels. We use a nationally recognized classical graded ballet system in all classes.
Ballet dancers may only go "en pointe" when invited by instructor. Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes.
Is great for all ages! Tap focuses on the rhythms that are articulated through the feet. From beginners to advanced
levels the students are taught turns, intricate footwork, precision, speed, and musicality. Center floor combinations and
various across the floor turns are introduced from beginner through professional level. Correct tap terminology is taught
at all levels on a graded tap system.
Is energy packed! Jazz consists of stretching, conditioning, isolations, technique, and center floor combinations. Across the floor patterns are taught at all levels. Different combinations of kicks, jumps, turns, and leaps are introduced in all classes. Jazz classes will study the different styles of jazz (precision, lyrical, and musical theatre).
Focuses on total body connectivity. The class develops a dancer that is aware of core support, the space around them, different energy qualities, and it enhances creativity. Developing the dancer in a holistic approach
will increase their technique and expression.
Hip Hop focuses on the creativity of body isolations that are intertwined with musicality. Classical technique is not a focus in this class. Classes study the various styles of hip-hop. Students will love the high energy that hip hop brings.
Certified in Acrobatic Arts! Students learn a variety of jumps, somersaults, handstands, backbends, cartwheels, round-offs, walkovers, back handsprings, and aerials developing strength, balance, and coordination.
Musical Theater dance is the study of Broadway dance and dance styles, but is based in jazz dance. Students will learn choreography from selected musicals such as “Hamilton”, “Wicked”, “Newsies”, “Pippin”,
“Hairspray”, and more!
If you like Tap, you will love clogging! Clogging is a percussive dance form like tap, keeping time with the downbeat. Highly energetic and fun!
This is a class for the beginning teen dancer. This class will teach Ballet basics and then also include Jazz technique across the floor. This is a great class to start in when beginning dance. This class will give the basic dance technique and challenge the student at a good pace.
