BALLET provides the foundation of a great dancer. Our classes focus on proper technique, correct body placement, strengthening and terminology. Pointe classes are available by teacher recommendation only.
TAP offers the fundamentals for creating rhythmic sounds. Tap dance helps promote a good sense of rhythm as well as coordination. Correct terminology is always used.
JAZZ classes also focus on proper technique, stretching and body placement with the use of contemporary music. Students learn various forms of movement. Intermediate and Advanced classes incorporate leaps and turns.
HIP HOP is another form of jazz that concentrates more on "popping" and "locking" positions. Today's popular music is usually chosen for this class.
LYRICAL dance, a fusion of ballet & jazz, uses correct technique while developing the dancer's sense of expression and feeling for the music.
MODERN Dance uses the torso employing such elements as contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation. Modern dance is not bound to the classical rules of ballet.
