CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

"Children's Introduction To Dance" provides the young dancer with the basics of ballet technique, coordination, flexibility, use of space concepts, interpretive movement and musicality development.   "Combo" classes give the young/novice dancer the opportunity to try out multiple dance forms in one class.  Combos 1 & 2 Classes provide an introduction to Ballet, Tap and creative movement.  Hip Hop/Jazz classes allow the older novice to learn the popular jazz and hip hop dance techniques.


Ballet

Ballet is THE foundation and basis of all forms of dance.  Classical, contemporary, and modern ballet styles are taught with an emphasis on proper technical training and injury prevention.  Ballet also develops proper placement, coordination, flexibility, balance, control, grace, and musicality. 




 

 

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is the latest, high energy form of dance!  Classes are taught with the most current, edited, appropriate versions of music from the pop culture of hip hop.  Hip Hop dance techniques such as poppin’, locking, krumping, freestyling and basic breakdance movements are taught.  Dancers are given the opportunity to develop their own sense of style as well.  

 

 

 

 

JAZZ / CONTEMPORARY

Jazz is a motivating, energetic, ever evolving dance form.  This technique is taught through the basics of ballet technique developing further coordination, flexibility, balance, strength, musicality and rhythm.  Classes are taught by breaking down turn, leap and jump techniques as well as flexibility extensions while fostering each individual student’s style.

Contemporary dance is a fluid form of dance combining the beauty and control of a ballet basis, with the sharpness of jazz, and the interpretive side of modern dance.  Dancers are taught to interpret their movements with feeling, motion and style while incorporating a  strong emphasis on ballet and jazz technique.
