Fun Dance Classes For All Ages, and Everybody!

Our Dance Classes are designed for the serious or recreational dancer. All of our classes combine teaching proper technique, self esteem, grace, and poise. Our philosophy is to make dance fun for everyone! That is why our teachers bring high energy, great music, and fun combinations to class every week. Placement into class is decided by the age of the student and their dance experience.

Ballet

A traditional ballet class that teaches classical technique set in an enjoyable, fun atmosphere. Ballet is the base to all dance forms. From studying ballet students can excel in any other dance style as well as learn grace and poise. Students will perform exercises at the ballet barre to work on balance and proper body placement. We will then move center floor and work on traveling movements. (Pointe classes are by invitation only)

Tap

This class will focus on creating rhythmical patterns with the body. Tap dance builds timing, coordination, and strong muscles in the legs and feet.

Jazz

Jazz dance is known for working on isolation, flexibility, and coordination all set to upbeat music. Students will learn the form of jazz as well as creative expression and personality.

Lyrical

Lyrical dance is a cross between Jazz and Ballet based movements. This style of dance focuses on the emotion and story behind a particular piece of music. We use this style of dance to tell a story through our movements.

Hip-Hop

This is a fast paced, high energy class, set to popular, “age appropriate” music. Students will learn break dancing, popping, locking, and styles found in the popular music videos of today....for younger children these music videos include that of the Disney Channel

Contemporary

This style of dance is fairly new to the dance world and is always evolving. We will mix the styles of Jazz, Ballet, Modern, Lyrical and Hip Hop. Using many different genres of music, Contemporary dance usually tries to tell a story. Most often a topic is decided on and we tell a story through our dancing.

Musical Theatre

Ever see a show on broadway, or a musical? Well this class is just that. Learn routines fit for the stages of broadway. We will dance to show tunes and combine Jazz dance with a lot of personality and facial expressions....maybe some lip syncing and singing too!
