These classes provide our youngest independent students with a great foundation in dance and gymnastics. Rhythm, coordination, strength and balance are introduced in a fun-filled way with lots of props...encouraging your child's imagination, social skills, and ability to listen and follow directions. Students must be able to attend class without a parent.
Ballet classes provide classic ballet technique and fundamentals and focus on grace, coordination, flexibility, balance, and strength. Lyrical is a dance form combining aspects of ballet and jazz which fosters more creativity and expression in movement. The class will combine both elements with the focus depending on the recital music selected each semester.
Tap classes provide basic tap technique and fundamentals and focus on rhythm, musicality, and coordination. Beginning with basic tap movements and advancing to more complicated rhythms, students work to better articulate the feet, produce louder, clearer sounds, and tap "harder, better, faster, stronger."
Jazz/Hip Hop classes are high-energy and big on fun! Like you see at concerts and in music videos, jazz and hip hop styles are as creative and unique as the dancers. Jazz movements include big leaps and amazing turns, pointed toes and high kicks. Hip hop requires less traditional technique and focuses on artistic expression through street dancing. Students will learn a variety of both jazz and hip hop choreography with the focus depending on the recital music selected each semester.
Tumbling classes (gymnastics floor exercises) build strength, power, balance, and flexibility as students learn tricks from bridges and somersaults to cartwheels and roundoffs, walk overs, handsprings and tucks. The gymnasts join the dancers in performing an "acro" routine in the recital showcasing the tricks they have learned.
