Classes Offered

 

 

Dance

Jazz

Lyrical/Contemporary

Tap

“Jazz” combines the basic techniques and encompasses a wide variety of other styles. This class includes strengthening warm ups, stretching exercises and dance combinations that derive from basic technique.  “Lyrical” expresses feeling with a focus on body lines, balance, and sustained extensions. It is an emotionally driven dance form.  Higher level classes will comprise more “Contemporary” styles, which focus on new forms and dynamics.  “Tap” is a percussive style of dance that focuses on rhythm that is sounded by the feet.  The feet become musical instruments with the sound they create. This class will develop a strong sense of music, timing and discipline.
     

Hip Hop

Tumbling 

Combo (3-5 yrs)

“Hip-Hop” comes from an urban, street type of movement.  This includes a variety of styles including popping, locking and breaking, as opposed to the fluidity of ballet movement. It is danced primarily to hip-hop music.  “Tumbling” includes acrobatic movements, where students focus on gymnastic tricks, flexibility and upper-body strength. These skills can be beneficial in all other types of dance.  Tumbling is practiced on mats. “Combo Classes” are split into three studies: ballet, tap and tumbling. Ballet will help develop technique and coordination. Tap enhances their rhythm, timing and musicality.  Tumbling will focus on strength and flexibility.  
     

Ballet/Pointe

Private Dance Lessons

Turns/Leaps/Technique

“Ballet” is the fundamental, technical form from which all other dance styles stem. It teaches young dancers important terms and techniques to maintain their proper form.  “Pointe” is the most advanced form of Ballet and can therefore only be taught to and performed by the more advanced dancers. Our Pointe class includes intensive, large amounts of barre work, ankle strengthening, center turn preparations, and patterns across the floor. “Private Dance Lessons” are for those who need extra work and want one-on-one attention in their desired area of dance. These lessons can give total concentration to the student in an area of weakness. More advances dancers can use this time for working on their solos, duets, trios and small groups. This class will help improve the basic technique of turns, leaps, and proper form.
     

Voice Classes

   

Voice Lessons (Private)

   
“Private Voice Lessons” offers a one-on-one vocal instruction to children and adults that would not be possible in a classroom or choir setting. It allows each individual to begin or further their singing abilities whether he or she is pursuing a career or simply seeking enjoyment and relaxation. In private lessons, you will receive help and instruction in these four foundational areas: music basics, vocal technique, song repertoire, and ear training. Each area is essential to a good musician no matter what you are pursuing through lessons.
