Regular Class Description

Ballet
(Ages 5+)
A classical form of expressive dance characterized by grace and precision of movement as well as elaborate formal gestures, steps & poses. Ballet is the foundation subject for all other forms of dance and is designed to develop a dancer’s strength, technique & flexibility. This class will consist of barre work, center floor, across the floor progressions & choreography.

Jazz
(Ages 5+)
Jazz dance combines techniques of classical ballet and lyrical dance with the current forms of popular dance. Jazz also has its own movement vocabulary ranging from the isolation of certain body parts to the movement of the entire body with the accents of musical rhythms. Emphasis is on the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy, technique, flexibility and style. Each level of jazz is a continuation of the previous level and increases in difficulty.

Lyrical
(Competitive Students Ages 7+)
A highly technical and expressive style of dance that fuses ballet technique with jazz and contemporary movement to interpret the lyrics of the music. This is an elective class that will focus on technique, flexibility, improvisation and choreography. Ballet background is recommended.

Hip-Hop
(Ages 5+)
Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music. Often distinguished by its “freestyle” nature it also includes a wide range of styles including breaking, locking, and popping. This class will focus on learning the different hip-hop styles as well as choreographed and freestyle movement.

Acro/Tumbling
(Ages 2+)
Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context. This class will focus on basic floor gymnastic skills, strength and conditioning, coordination, stretch & balance.

Tap
(Ages 5+)
The rhythm and movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels and toes of a dancer’s shoes, transforms the dancer into a percussive musician. Tap dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms and beats not only in music but in their own bodies.
