BALLET

Ages 4+

Focusing on traditional technique, ballet classes instill self-awareness at the barre, center, across the floor, and performance. Classes begin at the barre, with focus on body placement and technique. Those skills are incorporated in center work and across the floor movement. Ballet's focus on traditional technique helps build a foundation for all styles of dance.

TAP

Ages 4+

Tap dance is a rhythmic style in which dancers are as much a part of the movement as they are a part of the music. Dancers will be exposed to many varied styles of tap dance, and their techniques and terminology. Throughout instruction, there is a strong focus on building articulation and rhythmic awareness, which are the foundation of all styles of tap, as well as the joy and expression of being a part of the music.

HIP HOP

Offered to students entering Grade 1+

Hip Hop is more than music. It is a state of mind. It is a fun and high energy class influenced by a variety of other dance styles such as jazz, ballet and tap to name a few.

Our classes focus on bringing out your individuality and unique personality through freestyle and movement while dancing to the music that you love and listen to every day.
