Dance Styles

Ballet:  Classical Ballet is the traditional esthetic used to tell a story through movement without words. An abundance of grace, strength, flexibility and athleticism are emphasized in the technique. The stylistic qualities of Ballet evolved into three main stylistic divisions known as the Russion or Vaganova methods, Italian or Cecchetti method and the French method. Students will explore fundamentals of the Vaganova and Cecchetti methods in arm and leg positioning’s and movement across the floor. Classes will consist of structured series of movements performed at the barre, center floor, across the floor and at the corner. Students will explore dance terminology, musicality, adagio/allegro combinations, strength exercises, small/large jumps, turns, proper classroom etiquette, and performance.

Jazz: Jazz  is a FUN, UPBEAT, RHYTHMIC style of dance with roots from Africa. Student will be exposed to a variety of jazz styles while focusing on the fundamentals of isolations, simple rhythms and patterns, large jumps and turns, and basic performance skills. Class structure includes warm ups, stretches, isolations, across the floor progressions, and combinations.

Tap: Tap is a great way to build coordination, rhythm, strength and aerobic endurance. Students will gain flexibility and agility of the knee, ankle, and foot while learning proper tap techniques to perfect clear sounds, complex rhythms, stylistic notes and performance. (your tap teacher may have a better description that suites his class)

Contemporary: This class will focus on contemporary jazz and lyrical techniques such as contractions, floor-work, abstract and flowing lines, off center balancing, and expression. This class fuses the best of ballet, modern, and jazz into one class. Dancers learn to use their bodies to express feelings, tell stories, and connect with themselves for a deeper level of performance.
