Class Descriptions

Our selection of classes are a great fit for everyone, from tots to adults.

Traditional Classes

Ballet (ages 7+)
Ballet is an excellent foundation for all styles of dance, and several levels of classes in Classical Ballet are offered with lesson time allotted to the barre, center, adagio and variations. Students beyond initial combination classes are encouraged to include Ballet in their dance and acrobatic training whenever possible.

Pointe (*teacher approval required)
An excellent foundation in Ballet is needed for this class. All steps are performed “en pointe” — on the tips of the toes. Pointe is introduced on an individual basis and all students are selected by the instructor. Time is allotted to the barre, center, adagio and variations. All students in pointe classes are required to take an additional hour of ballet each week.

Lyrical/Modern
A fusion of jazz and ballet techniques along with contemporary movements.   Students in this class are challenged to improve strength and flexibility while conveying emotion through movement. Class time is allotted to barre work, center warm-ups, floor progressions and combinations.

Ballet/Lyrical
A combined class with ballet and lyrical for the beginning levels.  Lyrical/Modern is a favorite now with our students, but it’s important to have ballet to execute moves in lyrical class.  This offers instruction in both subjects for a stronger lyrical dancer!

Jazz
All styles of Jazz are offered at various skill levels. Time is allotted for floor warm-ups, dance combinations and jazz progressions across the floor tailored to each dancer’s skill level.

Jazz/Acrobatics
A combination class infused with jazz dancing and acrobatic tricks. Students will develop tumbling strengths, balance and flexibility while learning the fundamentals of Jazz. Jazz/Acrobatic routines are added for a special bonus!

Tap
Various skill levels of classes in tap technique are offered. Classes consist of exercises at the barre (to build ankle strength and agility), tap progressions across the floor and combinations to suit each dancer’s level. Tap routines taught in each class as an added perk!

Hip-Hop
Various levels of classes are available to suit each dancer’s skill. Classes consist of floor warm-ups, progressions across the floor and dance combinations to popular hit music. No previous dance training is needed — just a “funky attitude”!
