Class Descriptions

Kinder Dance 1/2

This class combines both Ballet and Tap as an introductory lesson designed to develop basic motor skills, musicality and creative movement. Students learn the disciplinary forms of proper technique, such as, development of balance, leaps, proper arm and feet placements, classroom behavior and etiquette. This class is geared to children between the ages 3-6.

Primary

These classes combine a more focused study of fields of Ballet, Tap and Jazz. Training in building a strong center, good posture and proper body alignment, obtained by introduction in traditional barre and center work. Teachers begin to place strong emphasis on basic terminology.

Ballet

Class includes traditional barre and center work, which focuses on building strong technique. Teachers emphasize on body placement, posture, muscle memory, control and flexibility. Ballet is the foundation for all other forms of dance, allowing a classically trained dancer to use their skill learned in this class for any other dance discipline.

Tap

Beginner through advanced classes includes the use of barre work as well as center work emphasizing musicality and coordination with your feet. Technique in Broadway, Rhythmic and Street styles are taught through exercises, combinations and drills.

Jazz

This class built off the basics of Ballet (balance, control and flexibility) and is executed with much faster paced movements. Jazz classes offer a wide variety of musical accompaniments, while promoting individual expressions and style.

Lyrical

A cross between the grace and fluidity of Ballet and the strength and passion of Jazz, Lyrical movement is expressible and entertaining. The lyrical style is known for its strong technique and performance/ storytelling qualities.

(Ballet and Jazz are the pre-requisites for lyrical.)

Acrobatics

Acro, which is closely related to gymnastics, will help develop great balance and flexibility. In this class skills will be explained by the teacher step by step, which in turn will be executed by the student, this to develop a good sense of listening and following directions.

Salsa

Break Dancing
