Dance Programs for Ages 8 & uP BALLET The most essential part of any dance curriculum is ballet. Whether a student dreams of becoming a professional ballerina or not, the benefits from this class will enrich anyone’s life. It will help a dancer develop grace, poise, discipline and self-confidence. Ballet is the foundation from which all forms of dance originate. TAP Students begin with the foundation of traditional tap. Different styles are then introduced as the dancers progress. Rhythm tap, contemporary, Broadway style and funk tap are some of the variations included in our tap program. JAZZ Students are taught jazz technique which helps them develop strength, improve muscle tone and build stamina. Jazz dance consists of unique moves, isolations, big leaps and quick turns all while being fun! LYRICAL Lyrical is a style that has grown exponentially since the shows So You Think You Can Dance and Dance Moms became wildly popular. Lyrical infuses the unique and contemporary moves of jazz while the dancer carries grace and poise from ballet. Lyrical allows the dancer to express full emotion and feeling through dance. NOTE: Ballet must be taken in conjunction with lyrical and the dancer must be 10 years of age. POINTE Pointe is encompasses the foundation of classical ballet. A pointe dancer supports all their body weight on the tips of fully extended feet. This is for students ages 13 & up who have continuously studied ballet. The ballet instructor will evaluate each student to ensure they have proper ankle support to participate in this class. HIP-HOP Hip-Hop is another style that has grown exponentially since the shows So You Think You Can Dance, Dance Moms, and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew became wildly popular. Our classes include a wide range of styles from contemporary hip-hop, popping & locking, house, and many more. BOY'S HIP-HOP Our boy's hip-hop classes are ages 8 through 18.
