BALLET

The Ballet curriculum is designed to help dancers create a strong pedagogical foundation through repetitive movement, of ballet vocabulary, discussion, and exploration. With focus on creativity, discipline and technical development, dancers work in a nurturing, pre-professional atmosphere to build confidence and life/dance skills.  Dance Majors acquire the ability to adapt and grow in any environment.

​TAP​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Tap is one of the oldest dance forms in this country. Students are taught rhythms, timing, and leg/foot coordination done to various types of music. We teach all types of tap from standard basics like “Singing in the Rain” to funky rhythm tap as seen in “Bring In Da Noise.” Students will receive well-rounded knowledge of all types of tap.

POINTE

The Pointe curriculum is designed to build the strength and technique necessary to properly execute both ballet and neo-classical vocabulary of dance on pointe. Focusing on how to stand on pointe correctly, use of the legs and feet and an appropriate and challenging vocabulary, students gain strength, technique and the cohesive fluidity required for every dance style.

JAZZ

Jazz class will focus on learning proper dance technique such as isolations of the body, improving performance quality and developing complex rhythms and patterns. Students will be exposed to various styles of jazz such as Broadway, Street and Contemporary to help develop a well rounded dancer. Class curriculum is based on ballet technique layered with traditional jazz movement and includes a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and combinations. As students progress through each level curriculum will become increasingly more complex and intricate.

 

​​HIP-HOP​​​​

Hip hop is a high-energy class that infuses the latest styles of street dancing, breaking, popping, and locking. Classes will encourage students to step outside of the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Hip hop dance requires students to have the strength and stamina to successfully perform moves. Therefore class includes upper and lower body conditioning as well as a rigorous warm-up to help prepare students for more intense movements.
