Class Descriptions

Ballet/Tap Combination Classes

These classes cover a basis of movement found in all dance forms. The goals of the combination classes are to foster creativity, freedom, and expression in movement. But most importantly, a love for dance. The class introduces technique ideas that will benefit each student as they grow as dancers. The concepts will prepare the students for when they graduate to the next level of dance classes. These students will learn basic dance and motor skills through a core curriculum. The tap portion will concentrate on basic sounds and body awareness. Ballet will include upper and lower body movement, the basic ballet positions, and rhythm; creative or free components are integrated within each class. By the end of the year, the students can dance set work independent of the teacher, memorize simple exercises and sequences, and start understanding musicality.

Tap

Our tap program focuses on rhythm, sound separation, and body placement. These classes will include a progression of basic steps through advanced combinations.

Ballet

Ballet is the foundation for all types of dancing; we strongly recommend ballet as a pre-requisite for any other type of dance. This class will include terminology, positions, turnout, barre, center exercises, port de bras, and combinations.

Jazz

Our jazz program emphasizes the use of body lines, which require a highly flexible torso, a strong center, and the ability to master fast and accurate footwork. Because the basic steps of jazz are modeled after ballet, we highly recommend that the student enrolls in an additional ballet technique class. This class will include a variety of turns, leaps, floor work, sharp movements, and numerous combinations.

Hip Hop

A high-energy class that uses the latest sounds in rap, R&B, and pop music together with movements influenced by some of today's hottest choreographers. Hip hop encompasses

movement with elements of poppin', locking, and breaking as well as freestyle movement to allow students to develop their own sense of style.

What is the difference between Jazz and Hip Hop? Jazz dance style is seen in many Broadway-type shows such as "Legally Blonde." It is a more structured stage style of dance. Hip Hop is a fast, high-energy type of dance seen in music videos and commercials. Dance moves seen in performances by artists such as Beyoncé and Lizzo would be typical examples of Hip Hop.
