Ballet is the foundation of all dance! It is essential in learning proper dance technique and form and we recommend that all new dancers take ballet. Dancers in Primary Ballet are also required to take one additional class.
Tap dance is a very musical form of dance in which the dancer taps out rhythms and intricate beats with their feet. Tap dancers are like percussionists with their tap shoes, drumming the floor with combinations of tap steps.
Jazz is an upbeat and high energy style of dance taught and performed to jazz or popular dance music. Isolations, stylized steps, big jumps and turns are all a part of jazz dance. In order to take this class the dancer must also be enrolled in Ballet.
Celtic, famously known as Riverdance, originated in Ireland in the 18th century. This style is fast, fun, and always a crowd pleaser! In order to take this class the dancer must also be enrolled in Tap.
Lyrical is a blend of ballet and jazz. This style of dance focuses on the emotive quality of dance through music and takes its name from using a songs lyrics to interpret movement. In order to take this class the dancer must also be enrolled in Ballet.
Hip Hop is an exciting and hard hitting class filled with the latest popular dance steps and music. It is taught and performed to hip hop music and other upbeat popular music.
Musical Theatre is an applied dance form that is used in musical productions or stage plays to help tell the story. This class focuses on acting and performing as well as choreography to make the dance performance come to life!
