This class switches things up to keep up with the changing interests of a youngster, a fun way to be introduced to dance!
Dance With Me: a 30 minute class for 2-3 yr olds performed with an adult buddy. 4 yr olds are welcome if they are not quite ready to perform in class without a parent in Creative Movement. Please read "Creative Movement" description.
Ballet: the foundation of dance. Ballet teaches terminology, body awareness, proper placement, and grace & poise that is used across various styles. Students are highly encouraged to take ballet over all other styles, as it will advance learning in other dance styles (especially jazz and technique classes).
Jazz: with a wide range of styles, jazz is a popular form of dance that changes with popular culture. Jazz dance is influenced by African American culture and jazz music. Since it is a style heavily influenced by ballet, students will be required to take ballet first, concurrently, or get approval from the instructor before enrolling in jazz.
Hip Hop: Hip hop is a widely energetic and popular style of dance! Students are encouraged to express themselves and find freedom in the movement. Students will learn hip hop technique like popping, tutting, waving, gliding, and housing that is similar to popular music videos, television, and movies. At various points of the year, a "tricks" section will be added to classes to learn popular stalls, freezes, and hip hop acrobatic skills.
Technique: a class that will focus entirely on building technical skills (leaps, jumps, and turns). Schedule may offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes depending on demand.
Dance Team Prep: a specialty class offered seasonally or based on demand. A great class for any dancer interested in trying out for school or all-star teams. Students will be taught basic technical skills (leaps, jumps, turns) Various levels may be offered for middle school and high school expectations. One of our more difficult classes.
Acro: a tumbling class designed for the dancer! Class will involve strengthening, stretching, and acrobatic skills. This is a tough one! Dancers end goal is to seamlessly incorporate acrobatics skills within dance.
LYRICAL: a class for our more experienced dancers, must have permission to take class. A sort of combination of ballet and jazz techniques, with more focus on emotional performance and story-telling behind movement.
ADULT BARRE: A workout class that uses ballet-inspired movements and the barre to strengthen and stretch the body. Bring your sweat towel and a bottle of water! :)
