Contemporary Ballet

Class Description

Our teen ballet class will focus a ballet technique but set to pop music. This class will introduce dancers to the skill set of ballet with a less rigid approach. Students can expect to see elements of modern and jazz within their weekly classes.

Urban (combined level class)

Class Description

Urban dance is one of the most highly energetic and rapidly evolving styles in dance today. A street style of dance, it is a fusion of dance styles developed from several cultures, including jazz, rock, tap and American and Latino cultures.

Acro 1 and/or 2

Class Description

Acro dance combines classical dance technique with gymnastics. Students will learn to blend athleticism and choreography to create acrobatic dance as seen in competitive dance, professional dance theater and contemporary circus productions such as those by Cirque du Soleil.

Tap 1 and/or 2

Class Description

Tap is a rhythmical dance form that involves making sound patterns with tap shoes. Tap dancing is a combination of the sophisticated African-American rhythms and the exuberance of Irish step dancing. Elements of ballet, jazz, ballroom and street dancing have found their place in tap repertoire. Tap dancing develops musicality and rhythm, co-ordination, and helps build a technically stronger dancer. This dance will allow you to improve your memory skills while increasing your cardio vascular strength and muscle tone.

Stretch & Strengthen

Class Description

This is a combined level class where students will be guided in stretches and strengthening exercise to compliment and enhance their dancing and help prevent injuries.
