Ballet classes include barre work, exercises in the center, across the floor movement, and stretching. Posture and proper body alignment are emphasized. Pre-pointe classes are designed to ready students to go en pointe in the coming years. Pointe classes are for girls who are at least 13 years old and have achieved the necessary strength and technique. We require a doctor’s note approving students for pointe work. Students may take the advanced ballet class and in ballet shoes, rather than pointe shoes, if desired.
Students learn to isolate sounds with their tap shoes, achieve rhythms, and execute steps and routines. Students are able to experience different styles of tap, from Broadway-style routines to modern pop music.
Classes feature center warm-up, across the floor, and combinations with emphasis on technique and stylistic variations. Students will experience improved pick-up skills and exposure to a wide range of Jazz, including Latin Jazz, Modern Jazz, Broadway or Musical Theatre, Hollywood styles, and more.
Classes feature a well-rounded vocabulary of Contemporary, Lyrical, and Modern dance movement. Students will be exposed to a deeper connection with the floor through barefoot dance, incorporation of improvisation in movement, and an increased focus on musicality and lyrics (when applicable).
Classes feature high-energy combinations taught to fun, age-appropriate music. This class teaches the latest moves while focusing on isolations, core strength, and contrast between intricate and broad-scale movement.
PreBallet / Creative Movement classes are designed to introduce boys and girls to the world of dance and music. Coordination, rhythm, balance, discipline, social skills, and fun interactive activities are all goals of these welcoming, friendly classes!
