Leaps & Turns: This class is designed to give more time and concentration on turning and leaping. In this class, the basic beginning turns will be worked on and then will move to the harder turns. Leaps and Turns classes focus on the most basic of turns (chaine, pique, pirouette) and variations of all of the above. Ballet – Leaps and Turns also progresses from basic leaps and jumps. The student’s goal is to execute a series of complicated turn and leap patterns technically correct and safely.
Tap: This dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms and beats not only in music but in their own bodies.
Jazz: Emphasis is on the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy, and style. Each level of jazz is a continuation of the previous level and increases in difficulty.
Ballet 1/2: More advanced stretching and strengthening exercises are given, barre work is introduced with a greater emphasis on vocabulary and French terminology.
Ballet 2/3: This is more advanced stretching and strengthening exercises, barre work is continued with a greater emphasis on vocabulary, musicality, balance and coordination, as well as French terminology.
Pre Dance: This class introduces a structured environment while allowing children to recognize their own individuality and body mobility.
Dance Fusion: Concentration is on vocabulary, alignment and proper execution of movement, memorization and independence through sequential tasking. Dance genres covered in each session are ballet, jazz, tap, and creative movement.
