    Ballet
    Ballet is the foundation of dance. The fundamentals of ballet will be taught using classical ballet technique. Each class will concentrate on proper alignment, lift, turnout, terminology and style.

    Tap
    Tap requires a great deal of rhythm and coordination and can be a challenging style of dance. Tap is a rhythmic and percussive dance performed wearing shoes fitted with metal taps. Dancers have fun and make noise!

    Jazz
    A fast-paced dance that is matched to upbeat, rhythmic music. Dancers will focus on turns, leaps, jazz technique and combinations. A concurrent ballet class is recommended to enhance strength and technique. 

    Hip Hop
    A Street dance class mixing funk and hip hop with video dance styles.  This class has an intense warm up then focuses on choreography, combinations and connecting with the “performer" inside of you!

    Irish Dance
    Love Riverdance? Now you can do it, too! Irish step dance is characterized by a relatively immobile upper body, straight arms, and quick, precise movements of the feet. In this introduction to Irish step, we’ll tackle the subsets of soft-shoe technique: jigs, reels, and slipjigs. Irish dancing is great exercise, lots of fun, and there’s that fabulous, upbeat music. 

    Lyrical
    This is a fusion of ballet and jazz. Dancers interpret the music and the result can be very emotional, powerful and delicate.

    Private Lessons
    Private classes are for dancers hoping to focus more on dance in a personalized setting or who wish to reinforce what they have learned without interrupting a class setting. We also offer private lessons to those who wish to compete a “solo” in a cheer, dance team, kickline try-outs, auditions or competitive dance setting.
