Ballet is the foundation of dance. It teaches proper placement, alignment, balance, technique and control. All of these elements are extremely important in any form of dance. Students focus on improving strength, control, and body positioning in barre and center work, as well as learning the vocabulary and terminology of Ballet.
Contemporary dance is an extension of ballet that expresses and showcases emotion. The dancer is taught to interpret his or her movement with feeling, motion and style. This style combines the fluid beauty of ballet with the more sharp moves in jazz.
Hip-hop dance is a unique and exciting style of street dance that is most commonly performed to hip-hop music. Hip-hop dance is a vibrant form of dance that combines a variety of freestyle movements to create a cultural piece of art. Through its three main styles of popping, locking, and breaking, hip-hop dance has evolved into one of the most popular and influential styles of dance.
Jazz is a stylized, fast-paced form of dance that employs many of the same concepts of ballet. This form of dance includes a variety of different skills and other technical aspects, and is paired with music that is popular and upbeat. Students focus on strength, technique, memorization, and terminology.
Leaps & Turns classes are available to any student wishing to improve upon the technical aspects of dance including their jumps, leaps and turns. Classes will cover both Jazz and Ballet technique.
Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes. Pointe technique encompasses both the mechanical and artistic aspects of pointe work. In particular, it is concerned with body alignment, placement of the feet and the manner in which a dancer transitions to and from en pointe.
