Schedule - Ages 4-6
For our younger dancers we offer a combination class where they will be introduced to the vocabulary and fundamentals of ballet, tumbling, and tap. While they are learning those basics, we will truly be focusing on coordination, motor skills, body awareness and rhythm. Instructors use age appropriate music and movement to encourage listening skills, social interaction and fun!
Urban Choreography (Hip Hop)
Urban choreography blends together the techniques from original street styles with current trends and styles. This high energy class focuses on body awareness, coordination, grooves, and patterning. More advanced levels focus on adapting to many different styles, incorporating many different dynamics and developing the dancers’ own voice and style.
We will be incorporating jazz, musical theatre, lyrical, and contemporary technique and choreography into our jazz classes. Beginning level dancers will focus strictly on jazz. Once they have a strong understanding of jazz technique, then they can learn the styles that are derivative of it.
Stemming from a combination of Ballet, theatrical dance, social dances, and African dance, Jazz has grown into a technique focused on extentions, turns, and jumps. Dancers work on stylizing their movement while also working on changing dynamics. Lyrical takes jazz technique and focuses on the expressive side. It is set to softer, emotionally driven music and works on body lines, expression and sustaining balance. Contemporary follows the role of modern dance. It works to find everything outside of the guidelines of traditional ballet and jazz technique. Dancers are encouraged to find their own unique style and movement.
