Age 7 & Older

☆ Ballet:
Classical yet vibrant, traditional yet evolving, the technical training of ballet is the basis and foundation of all dance movements. Ballet training is essential to all other dance styles, and develops strength, grace, poise, posture, and musicality. It is our belief and recommendation that ballet should be studied by every dancer at all ages and levels.

☆ Breaking:
Breaking is a form of Hip Hop that focuses on foot work, dynamic tricks, and freestyling skills. Dancers will be physically challenged to develop strength, flexibility, and coordination.

☆ Hip Hop:
As an original form of street dance, the high energy of hip hop makes it a favorite of all dancers! This class combines warm up, isolations, grooves, across the floor combinations, and a center combination while focusing on musicality and style.

Ages 7 & Older, Continued

☆ Jazz:
Jazz dance ranges in style from the excitement of funk to the bravura of Broadway. Jazz technique develops strength, coordination, and the controlled movement of each part of the body.

☆ Jazz / Funk:
A fun and funky take on jazz, incorporating street styles and hip hop with classic jazz.

☆ Lyrical / Contemporary:
A beautiful blend of ballet technique, jazz rhythms, and modern style create dances that reflect the emotions and lyrics of today’s contemporary music. Lyrical / Contemporary dance encourages natural, spontaneous movement and personal interpretation.

☆ Musical Theatre:
This dance style incorporates either jazz or tap technique, musicality and acting. Dancers will learn a variety of Broadway choreography from shows like West Side Story, Hairspray, and Annie, as well as the stylized technique of legendary theater choreographers. Singing or lip-syncing may also be included in the class.

Ages 7 & Older, Continued

☆ Pointe:
The technique of performing on pointe for classical and contemporary ballet. For advanced students with several years of ballet technique, upon recommendation of the instructor only. Students must be enrolled in a ballet class in addition.

☆ Pom:
While dance performance based, the emphasis of pom is in formations and precision. This class will focus on upper body and core strength and will incorporate the use of pom poms for a dynamic, hard hitting style. Our Pom dance class will have you ready for halftime in no time!

☆ Tap:
Tap works the ears as well as the feet. Rhythm skills are essential to building a solid dance education. Emphasis is placed on precision, speed, and clarity of sound with an upbeat and fun approach to rhythm and dance.

☆ Tumbling:
Our Tumbling classes teach flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline and concentration. Basic tumbling skills such as cartwheels, walkovers, handsprings as well as more challenging tucks and aerials will be incorporated with strength training and conditioning.

☆ Turns and Leaps:
Take your dancing to the next level. This technique only class is highly recommended for dancers on a dance team and will reinforce the basics of balance, strength and placement while focusing on a variety of jumps, turns, and “tricks.”
