Class Descriptions


Ballet

Focusing on pure technique, ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. Dancers will move through a series of exercises beginning at the barre then moving to the center and performing combinations including balancing exercises, turns, leaps, and jumps. Ballet develops the dancer’s alignment, balance, flexibility, grace, and poise.
 

Jazz

A stylized form of dance taking root from popular music and dance forms with basic ballet technique. Jazz is a broad from of dance that is individualized by each teacher. Students will learn alignment, flexibility, balance, turns, leaps, and jumps usually performed to upbeat popular music.

Lyrical

A slower style of jazz pulling more from ballet technique using turned out and parallel positions. Students learn alignment, flexibility, balance, expression, and focus. Lyrical dance is usually performed to complement the lyrics of a song, telling a story through movement.
 

Tap

A style of jazz dance that uses metal taps attached to the shoe to make rhythmic sounds. This form of dance uses ballet vocabulary and focuses of rhythm, musicality, and basic jazz principles.
 

Hip Hop

A style of jazz dance made popular by street dancers in California and New York. Dancers will learn rhythm, style, and improvisation, not focusing on technique, but allowing each student to find their individual style in relation to the music.
 

Creative Movement

Designed for the young dancer, creative movement incorporates props, games music and fun to encourage students to think creatively in addition to learning basic ballet technique. Students will go through a series of stretches, barre work, across the floor steps, and center floor activities. Students must be potty trained in order to participate.
 

Jumps, Leaps, Turns

Floor progressions focusing solely on leaps, pirouettes and skills help your child develop his/her skills.

Contemporary

A form of dance that began as a rebellion to ballet, shedding tight clothing and ballet slippers, modern dance is the purest form of dance as an art. Dancers learn basic ballet principles with an emphasis on style and dance in bare feet. Improvisation is used as a means to let the students explore their own creativity as a dancer. Students dance to a wide range of musical forms, usually without lyrics.
