Class Descriptions:

Offered to all ages in various levels, ballet is the foundation of dance. Body placement, flexibility, balance, alignment, strength and technique are achieved through barre and center floor work. Sound ballet technique is essential for strength, power, and execution for each dancer.

Offered to all ages in various levels.  Tap combines the study of rhythm, precision and the fluidity of movement and style. Tap dancing is an excellent way to increase the coordination and develop musicality.

These classes feature a concentration in jazz technique. Through proper warm up, effective stretching, body isolations and floor work incorporating center floor and across the floor combinations, each level builds on the previous one leading to greater understanding and proper execution of the many styles of jazz dance.

Offered to ages 6 & up in various levels. Focus is on the latest street styles of hip hop. This class teaches rhythm, musicality, coordination, and age-appropriate hip hop choreography.  This is an excellent class for high-energy kids who want to take a fast and fun dance class.   Dancers are encouraged to push themselves to explore new movements and to move to intricate rhythms.  Dancers are continuously learning new stalls and tricks in each class.

Lyrical dance is a modern dance form which fuses modern dance, jazz, and ballet. Lyrical dance is often referred to as contemporary dance.

This class is excellent for anyone who is serious about advancing their skills as a dancer. Students will be working on technique, focusing on correct body and arm placement on turns, leaps, jumps, etc. This class also offer strength building exercises and improve flexibility.  Students will also learn today’s latest stalls and tricks.
