CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Ballet is the foundation of all dance.  Its origins stem from Italy.  It is a highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary.  It is best known in the form of classical, but can additionally include neoclassical and contemporary ballet.  

Each class begins with a ballet barre, moves to a center floor adage, petite and grand allegro, and concludes with a formal grand reverence.

Pointe, as an extension to ballet, is the advancement of ballet class to hard boxed pointe shoes.  Students must be approved for this class. 

Jazz is an umbrella term that refers to several related dance styles including roots from tap, ballet, jazz music and African-American rhythms and dance.  

Jazz class will focus on learning proper dance technique such as isolations of the body, improving performance quality and developing complex rhythms and patterns.  Students will be exposed to various styles of jazz such as Broadway, Street and Contemporary to help develop a well rounded dancer.  Curriculum is based on ballet technique layered with traditional jazz movement and includes a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions and combos.  

Tap is the only form of dance which incorporates sound.  

Tap classes will develop rhythm, style and sound.  Students will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap.  Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement.  Class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, having fun!

Acro/Gym or acrobatics is the art of slow controlled movements using the flexibility of the back, legs and shoulders.  Acro is one of the performing arts and involves difficult feats of balance, agility and coordination.    

Classes will focus on increasing flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline and concentration. Emphasis will be placed on developing fundamental acrobatic technique, teaching skills such as handstands, chin stands, elbow stands, cartwheels, back bends, walkovers, balance and contortion tricks, all at each student’s individual level of experience.    

Lyrical is a fusion of ballet and jazz techniques.  Lyrical dance challenges choreographers to use emotion to interpret music and express emotion.  A lyrical dancer’s movements attempt to show the meaning of music while telling a story through every movement made.  Lyrical dance has a relatively recent history compared to other dance styles.  

Classes in lyrical will emphasize one’s interpretation of music lyrics while telling a story with movement that can be fluid or abstract.  Students will take the slow fluidity of ballet and combine it with the the turns and leaps of jazz.  

Contemporary is a dance performance genre developed during the mid 20th century and has since grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world.  It is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Dancers in this genre strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.

Hip Hop is a high energy, athletic, popular dance style originated on the streets in the late 80’s with break dancing. 

Hip hop classes infuse the latest styles of street dancing, breaking, popping, and locking.  Students will be encouraged to step outside the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Dancers will have fun as they learn combinations to popular and high-energy music!
