Classes Offered

Ballet-A classic dance form with specific terminology, technique, and choreography.  Ballet class is highly structured and regimented due to the classical technique that must be fostered and perfected.  Class begins by warming up at the barre and then continues to center floor which is followed by linking together combinations across the floor.  Class typically ends with a curtsey or bow to show respect to the teacher. 
Tap-a form of dance in which the feet create rhythmic sounds.   Tap dance was conceived in America but is influenced by cultural dances from Spain, Germany, England, Ireland, and Africa.  Class warm-up begins either center floor or at the barre, followed by stationary movements to enhance sound clarity, and recognize rhythm patterns.  Students will practice traveling movements across the floor and will continue to build upon single, double, and triple sounds.  Class concludes with a combination that reiterates the steps taught previously.
Jazz-a rhythmic stylized dance conceived in America and influenced by jazz music.  Jazz combines an erect spine and formal dance patterns of Europe with rhythmic, flat-footed, bent kneed influences from African cultures.   Class starts with a proper warm-up, continues with isolations, balance, flexibility stretches, floor progressions, and choreography.  Students should expect a high energy class with upbeat music with a strong emphasis on jazz technique.
*Ballet is a prerequisite for this class.
Pom-a style is influenced by jazz and cheerleading. Class focuses on teaching precise, sharp movements that are uniform and appealing to the eye.  Students begin with a typical jazz warm-up and progress to floor stretches to increase flexibility followed by across the floor progressions and a combination.  Instructors focus on jumps, leaps, pirouettes, kick lines, correct arm placement and ripples.  This class is highly recommended for students interested in auditioning for school dance teams.
*Jazz is a prerequisite for this class.  Studio purchased poms are required for this class.

Hip Hop-This is a dance style influenced by hip-hop music, (Rap, R & B, Old School) cultural fads, jazz dance, and hip-hop culture.  Class focuses on isolations, strengthening core muscles for break dancing freezes, conditioning and becoming comfortable expressing movement through freestyle and choreography. 
Acro-teaches flexibility, balance, strength, coordination, and discipline.  Students will begin with basic stunts such as forward rolls, push-up back-bends, crab walks, and motor skill drills.  More advanced students will learn cartwheels, round-offs, headstands, handstands, front walkovers, back walkovers, back handsprings, front handsprings, and ariels.
