Class Descriptions

Hip-Hop Commercial style of street dance using popular dance steps and high-energy movement to upbeat hip-hop, R& B & pop music.  It is often a reflection of current pop culture as seen on MTV.
Jazz Popular dance style seen in everything from music videos to Broadway musicals.  Jazz class will broaden your dance repertoire by incorporating technique such as leaps, kicks, jumps & turns with dynamic and energetic choreography.
Little Feet Introductory level course that invites children to explore their love of music and dance through movement exercises, songs and games while increasing awareness of the body through rhythm and creative dance. Designed to give young children a platform for creativity.  Styles of dance include jazz, ballet & hip-hop. 
Tap Dance Introductory level class for Mini (Ages 5-7) and Tap I (Ages 8 and up). Tap II (Ages 9 and up) is for the dancer with some experience. Students will learn technique and terminology in the famous dance style using their feet as percussive instruments.
Acrobatics Acrobatic training is a great way to take your dancing to new heights. It teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline and concentration. Dance elements from ballet, jazz, and hip-hop will be incorporated to enhance your performance skills and make the crowd say, “wow.” Students will learn new tricks and choreography set to music. This class will perform in the show.
Dance Fusion This class will incorporate Ballet & Jazz technique mixed with different styles of movement & music.  An emphasis will be placed on proper technique and arm/leg placement for leaps, kicks, jumps and turns.  Wear comfortable fitted clothing with hair up and out of the face.  Students may wear ballet shoes, jazz shoes or foot thongs to class.  The instructor will advise you on the preferred shoe for the show.
Musical Theater This class combines dancing, acting, and singing. We will focus on personality and performance
Lyrical Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance techniques. This style of dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use a motion to interpret music and express emotion. A lyrical dancer's movements and emotion attempt to show not only the meaning of the music but also tells a story.
Contemporary Contemporary dance tends to be intricate and physical and the dancers change levels and directions quickly and seamlessly. Contemporary dance may deal with abstract concepts, images, or emotional extremes. The movement is more internal showing the dancers' strength, control and quickness of movement.
Booty Beat/Flirty Girl When flirty, fabulous dance meets choreography with a strength-driven purpose; the result is a FUN, effective way to condition the entire body inside and out! Booty Beat/Flirty Girl works the entire body targeting specific muscle groups while maintaining super fun, non-stop cardio-dance moves.
LeBARRE LeBarre is a general fitness class that creates the workout using a full body workout. A small ballet barre is used in a variety of sequencing exercises that will challenge you and improve overall core strength. No prior dance experience or pink tights required!
Sing-Dance-Play A class where you and your child will play musically to varying songs and rhythmic rhymes incorporating fingerplays, movement activities and instrument play. The class is developmentally appropriate for children and is for infants to 5 years of age. This is a fun musical experience that is informal and a change for you to share song, movement and instrument play with your child.
Ballet Technique Instruction on the method and execution of movement of ballet. The techniques found in classical ballet are the framework for many other styles of dance such as jazz. Students will learn about head shoulders and hip alignment, turnout, graceful arms, toe pointing, correct body positions, lines and angles.
Break Pop & Lock Popping is the quick tensing and releasing of muscles in the arms, legs, back, chest and neck creating a pop effect. The movement is done to the beat. Locking involves pauses, wrist rolls, and bounces. Both are part of a breakdancing style that is often accompanied with movement where the dancer appears to move around the floor without using or lifting their legs.
Happy Feet A great class for your toddlers' first dance experience with mommy or daddy close by. The children will learn to interact with other young ones, rhythmic sounds and beats, motor development, and following directions. Parent involvement makes this class fun for all.
Recreation Dance An introductory dance class with a focus on hip hop, musicality, fitness and fun without pressure to perform in the show. Students will learn different dance combinations and some across the floor technique.
