Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms and will maximize technique and longevity in a career of dance. It provides grace, poise, and technique needed to be proficient in all other areas of dance. Ballet classes will help dancers with posture, flexibility, fitness, balance, self-discipline, and self-confidence.
All of our ballet classes, beginning with Juniors, are required to follow the ballet dress code (black leotard, pink tights, optional dance shorts or skirt, layers during warm-up, hair pulled back in bun and pink canvas ballet shoes).
Tap dance is characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm and Broadway. Broadway focuses on the dance and rhythm focuses on the musicality. Dancers practice a series of basic steps, adding more difficult combinations as they become more proficient.
Jazz dance is an exploration of style and presentation. Classes emphasize musicality and body alignment, conditioning, stretch and strengthening, rhythm and stylization as well as fun and innovative choreography.
