Ballet

Ballet is the core structure of dance, it is the foundation for most other disciplines and we encourage all students to attend weekly Ballet classes.Whether your dancer is 2 years old and learning to walk on her tiptoes for the first time, pretending to be a princess or mastering the technique as a teen, we believe that it teaches hard work, discipline and dedication at any age. Strong ballet technique will transfer into other dance disciplines.

 

Jazz

Characterized by technical and strong movements, jazz teaches precision, sharpness and quickness. Originating from ballet and ethnic forms of dance, class typically features currentand classic styles of music and movement.This allows each dancer to interpret and execute steps in their own original style all while exploring the dynamics of body movement. This class focuses on strength, flexibility, leaps and turns. Jazz dance is energetic and fun!
