Explanation of Class Curriculum

Creative Movement (Level 1 & Combo) — Students will be exposed to Ballet Basics and different types of movement accompanied by music. As well as dancing, students are engaged in ‘sing-alongs’ and usage of basic instruments. This is a great introductory class for youngsters to get accustomed to a class room setting, participating in group activities, sharing with other students, and following instructions. In the Combo Class, we add rudimentary tumbling/gymnastics.

Ballet/Jazz/Lyrical/Contemporary (Level 2 thru Level 8) — Students will be exposed to different forms of dance during this session. Ballet is the foundation of all dance and it is extremely important to be well grounded in ballet to excel in other forms. Younger students will start with jazz, then lyrical will be added. In the highest two levels, we add Contemporary.

Ballet/Pointe—More advanced students will extend their ballet training to pointe (toe shoes).  This is a ballet technique class for students that are training to wear, or are already dancing in pointe shoes. Pointe class consists of barre work as well as floor work. Strength training and conditioning is required to obtain the necessary muscle functions of dancing ‘en pointe.

Tap (Level 2 -Level 8) - Students will be exposed to a curriculum of Tap dancing. Tap shoes are required so that dancers can execute the necessary rhythm and sounds of tap dancing.

Hip Hop — This class engages students in an increasingly popular form of jazz; Hip Hop. Widely viewed on TV programs, movies, and music videos, Hip Hop is sometimes known as street-dancing. We incorporate music of Hip Hop, Rap, and Pop genres.

Ballroom- This is an older teen-adult dance course that teaches all of the social ballroom dances such as waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, swing, tango, samba, salsa, rumba, etc. No partner is required.
