(Dance Classes for ages 3+)

Ballet is a classical performing art characterized by light, graceful, fluid movements set to music, using precise and highly formalized techniques. It is the foundation from which nearly all dance styles have developed and is absolutely necessary for the technical development of each dancer. In addition, it builds proper posture and discipline in each student.

Pre-pointe is a class for advanced ballet students used to further develop correct body alignment and ballet technique as well as strengthen the muscles in the legs, ankles, and feet necessary to go en pointe.

Pointe is a classical ballet technique that appears to defy gravity. It is performed by a dancer supporting all of their body weight on the tips of fully stretched feet in pointe shoes.

Jazz is an umbrella term which encompasses many different styles of dance that became popular in the early 20th-century. Jazz Dance classes explore contemporary and classic jazz dance, rooted in the vernacular (social dance) forms, drawing inspiration from a wide range of music including jazz, swing, blues, pop, soul and funk. Jazz is a fun form of dance that showcases a dancer’s individual style and originality. It is appealing to everyone because of its energy, variety, and vitality. While staying true to its roots, jazz continues to evolve today by blending various dance styles together.

Tap is an exciting rhythmic exercise and dance form which is enjoyable to both kids and adults. Rooted in African-American History, tap dance is a timeless art that combines dance and percussion. Tap Dance classes explore the two traditions of rhythm tap (hoofing) and Broadway tap. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality and improvisation while Broadway tap is a much more presentational style of dance, concerning itself with the aesthetics of the entire dancing body. The goal in tap dancing is to produce clear, clean sounds, with various levels of tone.

Lyrical is a style of dance that blends elements of ballet and jazz dance. It is generally more fluid and faster than ballet, but not quite as fast as jazz. A lyrical dancer uses the art of dance to express strong emotions and often dances to music with lyrics that serve as inspiration for the dancers movements and expressions. Movements in lyrical dance are characterized by fluidity, continuity and grace, with the dancer transitioning seamlessly from one move to another.

Contemporary is a style of expressive dance that stresses versatility and improvisation. Contemporary is danced barefoot and combines elements of several dance genres including jazz, modern, lyrical and classical ballet.

Hip hop has become one of the most popular dance styles in recent years, mainly due to its popularity on television shows, movies, music videos and commercials. The history of hip hop is distinctly American, though its roots extend back through jazz to African dance. Unlike other dance styles on this list, hip hop was developed without a formal structure and was not created in a studio. A hip hop dancer only needs a natural sense of rhythm and practice, rather than formal training, to become skilled in the style.

Musical Theatre combines dancing, lip-singing, and acting to create and interpret a Broadway inspired Musical Theatre performance. Relying heavily on a knowledge of ballet, tap, and jazz, musical theater dancers are, first and foremost, actors and place a high focus on musical interpretation.
