● Jazz/Hip Hop Combo- is an umbrella term of dance in which many styles of dance are categorized. It can encompass many popular genres of dance including Broadway, modern, as well as contemporary and hip hop. Jazz dance traditionally focuses on technical skills learned in ballet, adapted to a turned-in position, isolated movements of the body, leaps, turns, and unique timing and body placement. Dancers are often able to express themselves through different musical styles and technical skills that tell a story.
● Pre Ballet- In Pre-Ballet, the goal is for children to experience the joy of dance while enriching their skills. This level focuses on introducing movement and musical foundations for ballet and dance while using creativity and entertaining concepts.
● Ballet- In Ballet 1 the goal is to approach the fundamentals of ballet: developing posture, balance, jumps, turns, flexibility, and coordination. Gradually we start including the essential elements and coordination of ballet steps. While dancers are getting accustomed to a deeper focus on ballet technique, we immerse the class with the creative elements of imagination, musicality, improvisation, and self-expression. This way, students learn the joy and the discipline of this beautiful art form all at once.
● Flamenco dance- is a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form. Flamenco is a dance characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm, and body movements. This class is for the absolute beginners. No prior flamenco or dance experience is required. The goal of this class is to learn the basic techniques and rhythms used in Flamenco.
● Tumbling- Beginner: Little to no experience. This class is designed to introduce basic tumbling skills to your child. Our goal is placed on correct form and conditioning drills to help little bodies develop to become stronger tumblers and accomplish the skills required for advancement. We will be concentrating on Rolls, Handstands, Cartwheels, Round Offs, and possibly Bridge Kickovers.
Advanced: This class is designed to reinforce tumbling skills in your child. Our goal is placed on correct form and conditioning drills to help bodies develop to become stronger tumblers and accomplish higher skills required for advancement. We will be concentrating on front-to-back walkovers, one-handed cartwheel/roundoff, as well as the foundations of the back handspring.
