Class Descriptions:

Creative Movement:


Creative Movement begins the journey of body awareness and motor skill development for every little dancer. Through the use of music & dance games, students learn self-expression and movement in a fun and encouraging atmosphere.



In Pre-Ballet, students begin to learn specific dance terminology & techniques by incorporating patterns from ballet. The basics of musical expression are also explored in this class 
Ballet 1:


 In this class, movement is learned in a more conventional ballet class setting. Strength, flexibility, and poise are developed through barre work, exercises in the center of the floor, and traveling across the floor.
Ballet 2:  This class is for the dancer who has had ballet and dance training. Technique and strength will be improved as the students focus on more intricate ballet and dance exercises.


Hip-Hop: Hip-Hop is the perfect avenue to learn today's most popular dance moves. The dance patterns given in this class will challenge the mind & body to move creatively while studying Hip-Hop and its influence on jazz and theater dance styles.


 Tap: Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one's tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. As such, it is also commonly considered to be a form of music. In these classes students will explore the movements and rhythms found in Tap Dancing.
