Dance Classes

We offer a variety of classes from beginner to advanced.  Our focus is on good technique and form that are the essential foundation for every dancer. Bad habits are hard to break. We have small classes with experienced teachers so that each student gets individual attention.

Baby Ballet/Tap Combo

We offer a combo ballet and tap class for children ages 3 to 5.  The first half of the class is ballet and the second half is tap. The class introduces children to basic concepts of dance and movement.  Students learn basic steps and terminology and explore fundamental movement concepts through games and imagery appropriate to their age level.

Beginner Ballet/Tap Combo

Beginning students learn elementary positions and movements such as plié, passé and chassé, as well as body alignment and small combinations. As students progress, they move on to building strength and gracefulness.

Intermediate/Advanced Ballet

Advanced classes include barre work and increasingly challenging turns and leaps such as fouetté turns and grand jetes.  Combinations become more complex and faster.

Dancing

Hip Hop

This class combines popular music video moves and street dance styles with basic dance steps  to allow students creativity and self-expression in dance.  The focus is on turning the rhythm of the song into unique and unconventional movements.  The atmosphere is more relaxed and the focus is on a more individual expression of movement.

Jazz

While still disciplined, jazz class focuses more on expression and the flow of one movement to the other.  The class starts with warm-ups focusing on flexibility, strength and isolations.   The rest of each class combines floor work with high energy turns, kicks and leaps to create challenging dance combinations.

Lyrical/Contemporary

Lyrical is a combination of both ballet and jazz techniques. It is performed to music with lyrics that inspire strong emotions. It gives dancers a chance to express a range of feelings through their dancing. Contemporary includes other styles of dance. The focus is on high and soaring leaps, graceful turns and walks, and fluid movements.
