Creative Dance
Class will focus on creative dance movement, including
learning to follow rhythm, mirroring technique and
improvisation.


Ballet/Jazz: Dancers will spend the first half of class learning Ballet technique, providing the foundations of dance through exercises focused on posture, proper turn out, 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.

 

Pom: Teaching sharp, clean, arm motions through quick and energetic combinations. Different from cheering as there is no focus on 'stunt work' and more of a focus on 'dance skills' and strength. Typical style used to prepare students for competitive teams as they get older, but can also just be for fun!  

 

Beginner 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 and speed of movement.

 

Hip Hop
Dancers will spend the first half of class focused on pom
style, motions, and technique and the second half will
emphasize classic, freestyle hip hop. They will learn two
short routines focused on each style.

 

Dancing Kings & Queens Dance for students with special needs. 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. Class will evolve according to the progression of the participants. Please speak with instructor regarding enrollment.
