Ballet (60 min)
A timeless tradition, ballet is the foundation for all types of dance. Using repetitious exercises, ballet focuses on combing 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. It is strongly recommended to take ballet if interested in to other techniques.

Tap (60 min)
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 barre work, center exercises, and across the floor movements with and without music. Proper shoes are required.

Jazz (60 min)
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. Proper shoes and attire required.

Contemporary (60 min)
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. It is a newer and more expressive art form. Knowledge of ballet and jazz technique is strongly suggested. Proper shoes and attire required.

Urban (60 min)
Urban dance (more commonly known as “street” dance or “hip-hop” dance) 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. Born to the streets of New York in the late 1970’s, urban dance has quickly become one of the most popular dance genres in the world. With various forms of movement and techniques involved, there is truly something for everyone! 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. Urban dance will not only burn calories and tone your body…it will nurture your mind, and unleash your spirit!
