Ballet/Pointe

This class will provide the essentials of dance to provide a more effective use of the body through better coordination and control. Learning correct technique is fundamental. The student’s body cannot develop correctly if the physical movement performed in the classroom is done improperly. This class will not learn a choreographed dance to perform, but instead focus on barre work, turns, leaps, and skills that are choreographed into other dances.

 

Hip-Hop / Break Dancing

A style of dance primarily performed to hip hop music. Hip-hop is rooted in the urban social dancing and often calls for the dancer to freestyle (improvisation). Dances often include breaking, popping, locking, krumping etc... any new social dance being introduced to the “streets”

Jazz

A technique whose roots are a blending of traditional Caribbean and classical dance performed to jazz music. This technique has evolved to incorporate various styles of dance and genres of music but still distinguishes itself by its musicality with an emphasis and strong accents and characterization.

Lyrical

Contemporary
