Catering to our younger aspiring dancers (ages 5 to 7), our combination tap dance and ballet class offers an unmatched foundational learning experience for developing young dancers. In Ballet/Tap, our students receive specialized attention and education from our amazing dance studio staff, preparing them with the skill and technique they will need to continue on their dance journey! Whether students decide to continue toward a ballet, tap dance, or both, they will have all of the tools and, most importantly, confidence they will need to succeed!
Begin your child’s journey into the graceful art of ballet in earnest with advancing instruction and technique! Specifically designed for students ages 8 to 12, our ballet class builds seamlessly upon the foundations laid in Ballet/Tap. Your developing dancer will continue to learn to employ the formalized steps and gestures of the art form, creating delicate, flowing patterns to create expression and tell stories through movement.
Ballet technique is the technique-exclusive youth ballet class offering at our dance studio, tailoring education solely around improving technique. Providing advanced education to ballet dancers ages 12 and up, ballet technique puts extensive effort and education toward the mastery of correct body placement and form. This class allows for students to truly learn the value of precision and grace in every movement in order to tell a story and establish an emotional atmosphere.
Elegant, weightless, floating on air – these words and so many more describe the unmatched beauty and unrivaled grace of pointe! The pointe technique describes the classical ballet technique in which the dancer supports the entirety of their bodyweight on the tips of fully extended feet using specially designed pointe shoes. This advanced ballet class is reserved for experienced ballet dancers to ensure the health and safety of our students.
Follow in the precise, percussive footsteps of legends like Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Michelle Dorrance, Gregory Hines, and so many more when you learn the high-energy art form of tap dance! Our dance studio students will learn to master the sharp, precise movements required to produce a clear “TAP” and to excel in the art of lively, rhythmic tapping, transforming them into another instrument in the orchestra, becoming both dancer and musician!
If you’ve seen the magic of musical theater live or enjoyed incredible displays of dancing prowess on television shows like “So You Think You Can Dance?”, then you have likely been wowed by the wondrous displays of Jazz Dance. Characterized by strong sharp movements punctuated with dramatic jumps and turns, Jazz Dance is a classically American style of dance that simply refused to be pinned down. Students in our jazz dance class can expect to learn a little bit of everything in this extremely interdisciplinary style!
Encompassing the gorgeous cultural expressions of the Tahitian, Tongan, Samoan, Fijian, Maori, and Hawaiian peoples, Polynesian dance is a flowing, smooth, and graceful form of storytelling through motion. Polynesian dance is instantly recognizable thanks to mesmerizingly beautiful costumes and disciplined, passionate movements. Our dance studio is immensely proud to offer an education into this exploration of personal expression!
Modern Dance focuses on the dancer’s interpretation of the emotions in the music, following freeform steps that reject the tradition and structure of ballet technique. Encouraging the performer to use their emotions, moods, and body movements to create new, innovative steps that tell their story, modern dance is an ideal choice for the young, aspiring dancer with overflowing creative energy, as well as teens and adults looking for a creative outlet!
