Tap– Like in school, tap students learn a graded syllabus 1-8. A regular class consists of barre, center work, across the floor progressions, and tricks and choreography based upon the students level. In tap class, rhythm is sounded out by tapping and hitting the floor in specific patterns with tap shoes. Tap shoes have metal taps attached to the toes and heels of the shoes to create percussive sounds with the feet. Tap classes are full of energy and fun!
Jazz– The art of jazz dance is exciting and ever evolving. The rhythms and the movements are explosive and expressive. This class is full of energy. Beginning with high impact aerobic warm ups/isolations and continuing into pirouettes (turns in center), and battments (kicks in the center) followed by across the floor work including leaps, jumps, turns, and finishing up with choreography/routines. Jazz is cool!
Lyrical Jazz– The softer side of jazz combines elements of ballet with jazz technique. Dancers explore their passionate side often dancing to pop ballads full of emotion and depth. The class time is often spent on extended across the floor and center choreography. Always a showstopper!
Hip Hop– Made popular on T.V. and in music videos Hip Hop dance allows students to let go and enjoy moving to music that they commonly listen to. There are many styles of Hip Hop and we offer a variety of different techniques. Classes include warm-up across the floor and choreography.
Contemporary-This class includes dance creation, experimentation, performance, discussion, and contact improvisation. Students are encouraged to explore the concepts of dance techniques and philosophies while challenging themselves mentally and physically. It’s a really cool class!
