TAP

An exciting rhythm based dance form that promotes coordination, musicality and fitness. Classes consist of warm-up, tap barre, tap drills, improvisation and routines.


JAZZ

A high energy class featuring a variety of movement and styles. Classes consist of warm-up and barre exercises, as well as progressions, improvisation, combinations and routines.


BALLET

The root of all forms of dance. Ballet promotes strength, flexibility, turn-out and poise. An excellent foundation and partner to all types of dance.


POINTE

En pointe means "on the tip" and is a part of classical ballet technique. Pointe developed from the desire for dancers to appear weightless and has evolved to enable dancers to dance on the tips of their toes for extended periods of time.


LYRICAL

The Lyrical dance style has its primary basis in ballet, combining the many technical elements of classical ballet with the freedom, fluidity, expressiveness and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern dance. It is typically considered a sub-category of jazz and/or contemporary dance. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement.


IRISH DANCE

Intricate footwork, traditional and modern techniques are taught in both hard and soft shoe in our Irish Dance program.


MUSICAL THEATRE

Become a triple threat! Musical Theatre combines singing, dancing and acting. A highly charged class that promotes self-esteem and builds confidence.


HIP HOP

Hip-hop dance refers to dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, and popping.


JAZZ TECHNIQUE

Strong technique is of the utmost importance. In our Technique classes students will focus on form, style and execution. There is no choreography involved, which gives students ample time to learn new skills and perfect those they already have.
