Class Descriptions:

Creative Dance: Young aspiring dancers can partake in our introductory Creative Dance Class. Designed to teach kids rhythm, coordination, improv, mirroring, and basic technique in a social and energetic environment.

Ballet/Jazz: Dancers will spend the first half of class learning Ballet technique, providing the foundations of dance through exercises focused on posture, proper turnout, and strengthening feet/arms. While training in jazz focuses more on rhythm, personality, and stage performance. Choreographed dance will be assigned to each style to establish well-rounded lessons for dancers.

Hip-Hop/Pom: A high-energy class that combines the popular street styles of hip hop with the sharp clean movements of pom. The first half will focus on hip-hop movements to encourage dancers to step out of their comfort zone by bringing individuality and personality to unique movements. The second half will focus on teaching the quick and energetic combinations of pom. Different from cheerleading as there is no focus on 'stunt work' but rather on dance skills and strength. These styles are the two most popular competed at high school and collegiate levels. Students will learn two choreographed routines focused on each style.

Tap: Designed to help students develop rhythm, style, and sound, students will be introduced to a variety of tap styles from broadway to rhythm. Exercises will be focused on building coordination, weight transitions, and speed of movement. ALL AGES WELCOME!

Dancing Kings & Queens This unique class is specialized for differently-abled/special needs dancers. This class will contain the same elements as any other dance class. Students will learn the vocabulary of Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz, and more with sensitivity to dancers’ needs. This class is an excellent place for students to socialize and the class will evolve according to the progression of the participants. Please speak with instructor regarding enrollment: Ms. Sarah, svirg3@gmail.com
