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. It has deep historical and social roots in African American culture that include popping, locking and break dancing. 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.

JAZZ

Offered to students entering Grade 4+

Jazz dance combines techniques of ballet, modern, and contemporary dance, and has its own movement vocabulary. Jazz dance can take on many different characteristics and styles, and classes can be patterned in any of these styles or a combination of them. Emphasis is on the importance of energy, musicality, body placement and style. 


THEATRE DANCE

Offered to students in Jazz 2+                   
In this class students explore various aspects of performance.  Emphasis is placed on acting exercises, theatre games, improvisation, self-exploration, and team and community building. There is also a focus on jazz technique and introduction to various Broadway shows and styles. 
 

CONTEMPORARY/LYRICAL FUSION

Offered to students entering Grade 4+ 

Blending the traditions of ballet and jazz with emotional performance, Contemporary/Lyrical Fusion ultimately connects expressive movement to music. Contemporary/Lyrical Fusion classes will explore the various movement and expressive elements of each style, while placing focus on proper technique, body placement, alignment and control. It is recommended that students be enrolled in at least one technique class to support their study of Contemporary/Lyrical Fusion. Technique class options: ballet, jazz, technique enhancement, leaps and turns.
