Consisting of both high energy and upbeat popular music, students will learn how to combine fast, intricate footwork, graceful spins and aerobic floor work. Students will also learn technique and strengthen their ability to learn high-end choreography. Jazz 2 and 3 will be structured and taught similar to lyrical jazz class.


Lyrical Jazz / contemporary

Lyrical Jazz and Contemporary are both deep, personal, emotional styles of dance.  Lyrical Jazz is known by its connected and graceful movement of the body.  It is a specific style of jazz that connects movement and music together by illustrating emotion through each movement.   


TRICKS, TUMBLING & ACRO

 

Our Acro classes introduce a skill that is unique in the way it seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics.  In these classes, you will learn everything from tricks and tumbling passes to combining skills to make one fluid movement.  Int/Adv Tricks & Tumbling is for students that already have an intermediate to advanced level of skill, such as back walkovers, front handsprings and working on aerials.  When offered, our Adv Dance Acro is for the more experienced and older student that has already mastered the basics and is currently working on back handsprings, flips and more intricate combinations and tumbling passes set them to music.  If you are not yet ready for these classes, we also have a beginning class where they can begin their study in Acro with the basics.

Our Hip Hop Tots class is a great way to introduce younger students to Hip Hop and Breakdancing. Using age appropriate music and activities to engage our student to learn a fun combo that we build onto each week.   Hip Hop is an high-energy class that infuses the latest styles of street dancing, breaking, popping and locking.   Hip Hop 1 is for our beginners ages 8+.  Hip Hop 2 dancers are ages 10+ and should have 2 year of hip hop experience or a firm grasp of hip hop fundamentals and terminology.  Hip Hop 3 is for teenage and adult dancers that want to continue to build on their skills.  All our Hip Hop classes will encourage students to bring their own individual style and personality to the choreography.
