It provides grace, poise, and technique needed to be proficient in all other areas of dance. Ballet classes will help dancers with posture, flexibility, balance, and self-discipline. Students will learn classical and contemporary ballet techniques, learn terminology, and apply it to a fun recital routine.

Hip Hop is a stylized form of dance that is paired with music that is popular and upbeat. It incorporates a variety of old and new styles, grooves (exploring the music and movement with the dancers own individual style) as well as improvisation. Hip hop dancing is very dynamic and helps the dancers develop body balance, coordination, and confidence.

Classes focus on building strength and flexibilty needed to do basic acrobatic skills (such as handstands, walkovers, chin stands, chest rolls) and basic tumbling tricks (back handsprings, aerials, partner tricks). Skills/tricks are introduced as students are ready at an individual level for the safety of the students.

Classes include breathing and singing technique practice, acting and improvisation activities, as well as dance technique and performance.  Exercises focus on increasing confidence, stage personality, and overall performance.

*Recommended for students interested in auditioning for the middle school or high school musicals!

Ages 10 -18

POINTE 

Readiness for pointe work is determined by each student’s strength and physical development, not by their age. Pre-Pointe and Beginner Pointe are prerequisites for Pointe class. Pre-Pointe will focus on core strength, turn-out, alignment, balance, and foot, calf, and ankle strength. The instructor will advise parents when a student has the necessary strength and maturity to go get pointe shoes. Students will move on to Beginner Pointe and work en pointe at the barre slowly building their strength and confidence in pointe shoes. With permission of the teacher, students will progress to Pointe when they are strong enough to work in the center without the aid of the barre.

Ages 10-18

CONDITIONING/FLEXIBILITY

Fun exercises are learned to upbeat and inspiring music, designed to really energize the student to reach their personal best. The class will incorporate the use of props (balance balls, stretch bands, etc.) to aid improvement as well as keep the class fun and interesting each week! They will learn many effective stretching techniques that will produce results quickly if used on a regular basis. The class is guaranteed to  improve each student's personal level of cardiovascular endurance, strength,  and flexibility.

Ages 10-18

TECHNIQUE (LEAPS/TURNS)

This class helps build dance vocabulary, improve existing skills and advanced technique as a supplement to ballet, jazz, and lyrical classes. Dancers will improve balance, flexibility, body alignment, strength, stamina and agility with a strong emphasis on proper execution. No choreography is taught in this class, though short combos might be used to link skills together. 

*Recommended for any dancer interested in trying out for their high school dance team!

OPEN LEVEL COMBO CLASS

This class is a favorite among many of our students! It gives dancers the opportunity to explore a different dance style each week in a unique setting from their regular dance classes.

ZUMBA®

Zumba® Fitness takes the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party.
