Basics

Jazz


Jazz dance is an exploration of style and presentation. Jazz classes begin with a warm-up to develop strength, flexibility, correct alignment and coordination, followed by progressions across the floor, and culminates in extended dance combinations.




Ballet


Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms and will maximize technique. It provides the grace and poise needed to be proficient in all other areas of dance. Ballet classes will help dancers with posture, flexibility, fitness, balance, self-discipline, and self-confidence.




Tap


Tap is characterized by creating syncopated and rhythmic sounds. The core of the class will focus on the development of basic technical skills, as well as the ability to understand music and rhythm.




Lyrical and Contemporary


Lyrical is a combination of ballet and jazz that challenges dancers to use choreography and movement to interpret the music and express emotion. Contemporary is a style of dance that draws from modern, jazz and lyrical dance genres. Students will express themselves through movement that is driven by the music in this combination-centered class structure. (Pre-requisite: Lyrical)
