Dance Classes

Ballet is the foundation for all dance training and we are focused on helping students develop solid ballet technique. There is an emphasis on learning proper use of turn out, use of arms (port de bras), and understanding correct body placement. Classes begin with a warm-up at the barre, followed by center floor exercises including adagio and allegro.

Jazz is a dance form that is known for its energy, variety, and overall upbeat nature. Our jazz classes explore both the contemporary and classic jazz style. Students in this class will begin with a warm-up to develop flexibility, strength, core, and coordination, followed by across the floor exercises. The rest of class will be used for center work and combinations.

Tap dance focuses on the interpretation and progression of various rhythms and sounds. Tap Dance is the timeless art that combines dance with percussion. Classes begin with a warm-up and move through across the floor progressions. We will then explore various rhythmic combinations in the center.

Hip-Hop is an upbeat class that combines basic hip-hop and jazz movements to create funky combinations. Students will have fun in this face-paced class while developing their coordination, rhythm, and self-expression. All warm-ups include stretches emphasizing strength, flexibility, endurance, and musicality.

Contemporary/Lyrical is a form of dance that fuses both ballet and jazz styles. This class blends the controlled movement of ballet with the dynamics of jazz and modern to create expressive movements that tell a story. Students will develop technique skills, as well as flexibility in this class. Each class will include a stretching and technical warm-up as well as choreography.

Pom-Dance combines the precision and sharpness of cheer movements with the choreography and technique of dance. Students will approach pom with jazz technique as the basis for choreography. This class will teach the basics of motions and style as typically seen with dance teams. Dancers will use pom-pons weekly!
