A timeless tradition, ballet is the foundation for all types of dance. Using repetitive exercises ballet focuses on combining strength with grace. Ballet builds strong core muscles (abdominals, back, and legs) while teaching artistry. Students will do barre work, center exercises, and movements across the floor.
A rhythmic style of dance that focuses on musicality and movement. Tap dance works the connection of the mind and body through complex footwork. Dancers will do center exercises and across the floor movements with and without music.
A dance style that is based on ballet technique, but adds individual expression and movement using popular music. Dancers will gain strength and flexibility through stretching, center exercises and across the floor movements.
An interpretive style that focuses on unconventional movements. Contemporary is often a fusion of ballet, jazz, and modern technique, focusing on oppositional movement, alignment, and emotion. Knowledge of ballet and jazz technique is strongly suggested.
Urban dance (more commonly known as “street” dance or “hip-hop”) is a genre of movement on the cutting edge of athleticism, rhythm and creativity. Urban dance encompasses many street styles, the most common styles being; break-dancing (“bboying” or “bgirling”), popping, locking (funk), housing, and waacking. Students will work on stamina and SWEAT while practicing musicality and rhythm through high-energy drills, choreography based movement, and the application of free styling.
