Ballet/Pointe (all ages)

Our ballet classes include barre and center work, progressions and choreographed dances that enrich the movements of classical ballet. Ballet is the foundation of dance and is required for anyone serious about dance. Dancers that are considering taking Pointe will need to be evaluated by our teachers for proper placement.

 

Lyrical/Contemporary (all ages)

This beautiful, expressive style is meant to tell a story through the dancer’s movement. Lyrical combines the graceful lines of Ballet technique with the influencing movement of Jazz and Modern. An emotionally driven dance form, “Lyrical” depends greatly on the passion and interpretation of the performer, not just the movements themselves.

 

​Jazz (all ages)

Our jazz classes enrich and extend students' technical skills through center and progression work. Skills such as extension work, leaps and turns are incorporated into choreographed routines, which challenge the dancers' jazz and memory skills. These upbeat combinations are taught quickly and are fun for the dancer to practice for when they get on stage. 

 

Tap (all ages)

Our tap classes are designed to teach students about rhythm, timing, and leg/foot coordination done to various types of music. Tap is all about taking dance beyond the visual to the auditory, using your feet as a percussive “instrument” to create sounds as you dance.
