DANCE DISCIPLINES...

Jazz is an umbrella term that refers to several related dance styles including roots from tap, ballet, jazz music and African-American rhythms and dance.  

Jazz dance evolved from a number of influences including Vaudeville and Broadway.  Notable choreographers and dancers of jazz dance include Katherine Dunham, Jack Cole, Bob Fosse and Gus Giordano.  
Jazz class will focus on learning proper dance technique such as isolations of the body, improving performance quality and developing complex rhythms and patterns.  

Students will be exposed to various styles of jazz such as Broadway, Street and Contemporary to help develop a well rounded dancer.  

Curriculum is based on ballet technique layered with traditional jazz movement and includes a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions and combos.  

Tap will music with your feet! Students develop a repertoire of technical elements, rhythmic footwork creative combinations and challenging beats. Tap, as a dance form, is distinguished

by percussive footwork that marks out precise rhythmic patterns on the floor. Some examples of the steps are brush, flap, shuffle and ball change.

Acro will focus on floor and mat skills combining dance and gymnastics. Students will progress from basic to advanced techniques using controlled moves such as walkovers,

handstands and chest rolls, students are taught how to connect skills to Jazz. Gymnastics passes, flexibility moves and contortionist moves are put together with dance steps and choreography.

Hip Hop is a high energy, athletic, popular dance style originated on the streets in the late 80’s with break dancing.  Hip hop has come full circle incorporating Capoeira, Martial Arts, Jazz, and Modern dance. Hip hop classes infuse the latest styles of street dancing, breaking, popping, and locking.  Students will be encouraged to step outside the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Dancers will have fun as they learn combinations to popular and high-energy music!

Ballet is the foundation for all dance forms. Improve strength, poise, balance, and control. Technical skill gained through the study of ballet is necessary for all other forms of dance. Students considering competing in dance in the future should enrol in a ballet class.

Conditioning will incorporate various stretching and strengthening exercises are performed to increase flexibility, strength, and control. Technical skills are also practiced to improve ballet and jazz technique. Students are taught how to apply their ballet technique to other dance forms.

Broadway Starz (Musical Theatre) is the ultimate in performance through dance and theatre. Characterization and dances are often inspired by music from movies and musicals. If you have ever dreamed of Broadway this is the class for you. Portraying a character from a play, movie, television or stage production while incorporating any form of dance moves, and lip-syncing to the words of the character.

Contemporary is a freer, more expressive and grounded style of movement that uses proper technique to its advantage. This class lifts the restriction from Ballet and has its own technique within it. Contemporary explores the possibilities of human movement and the use of space; up-down, left-right, contraction-release, fall-recover; strengthening the dancer both mentally and physically. The students will be taught to express emotion physically through dance. 

Lyrical is a modern dance form which fuses modern dance, Jazz, and Ballet. Lyrical dance is often referred to as contemporary dance. It requires excellent technique to perform, as the moves are often difficult and precise. Moreover, the dancer must be well aware of facial expressions, essentially acting, to properly perform a lyrical dance piece.
