Ballet & Pointe
Ballet emphasizes proper body positioning and development of correct muscle alignment. Grace, fluidity of movement, and discipline are core aspects of this dance form. Ballet is a necessity for the serious student of dance, as it is the foundation for all other dance forms. Our classical ballet program includes Russian, Cecchetti and Vaganova technique.
Jazz is a quick moving, technical dance form. Class will focus on flexibility, turns and leaps, and coordination, through center-floor work, across the floor progressions, and combinations.
Tap is an American dance form in which the dancer creates exciting, dynamic rhythms with their feet. Instruction includes emphasis on musicality, clarity of tap sounds, proper technique, speed, and a variety of styles of steps.
Hip Hop is an upbeat and high energy form of dance, popularized by music videos and concert stages. Constantly evolving, hip hop blends jazz and street dance, to develop the dancer’s sense of personal style and creativity.
