Ballet provides a solid foundation for all other forms of dance and therefore, we strongly encourage dancers who are interested in other classes to enroll in ballet, as well. Students will learn the 6 feet positions and arms. We will also be using the French ballet terms. We do not pigeon hole into one area of ballet, we hope to show students aspects of lyrical, classical and modern ballet. Ages 5 and up.
This is an introduction class to dance. We will focus on 11 fundamental dance concepts, ballet terminology on top of working on coordination and gross motor skills such as leaping, skipping and galloping. We work on following directions and working in a group. Dancers will learn a new dance each month and then starting in January we will start working on our recital dance.
Jazz is recommended to develop style, strength, and versatility. We will build on the ballet foundation of dance principles, knowledge of dance vocabulary, and technique. Our Jazz classes will also be pulling inspiration from different styles such as hip-hop, classical, lyrical, modern (just to name a few). Classes are structured around proper warm-up, across-the-floor progressions and combinations, center-floor technique and combinations, and performance skills and routines. Ages 7 and up.
Movement classes are for little ones ages 18m to preschool age. It's an informal class including movement, rhythm, music, counting and of course dancing. We work towards following directions, working with a group, and acquiring skills necessary to perform in a group (for example, waiting their turns). Parents/guardians are ask to stay during the class and are welcome to join in on the fun. This class is not part of the recital. Friday's movement classes are a drop in class (no registration required and can pay per class or purchase a punch card.) Tuesday evening movement classes are six week sessions and registration is required.
A class full of combinations to popular hip hop songs and learning new moves such as a stalls. Ages 3 and up.
Tap enhances rhythmic dynamics, speed, and agility. It instills an awareness of the music; its timing, rhythm and changes in energy. Ages 5 and up.
Our pom classes work towards taking a group of individual dancers and turning them into one dancing unit. We work with pom motions, jumps, turns and group formations. Ages 5 and up.
We will have a Jazz, Lyrical ballet hip hop, and Acro competition classes. These classes will compete in several competitions in the spring and will perform at recital. To be eligible for the lyrical competition class, dancer must be enrolled in our regular ballet class.
