Dance Classes

Acro


Acro classes offer Dancers the chance to hone their strength and flexibility while incorporating dance movements. Beginning with Acro fundamentals such as somersaults and cartwheels, Dancers safely build the skills they need to achieve more complex movements, such as forearm stands, walkovers,and side aerials. We use the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus to teach the skills, but use dance to transition through their movements. This all leads to a fantastic performance on stage at our year end recital.

Ballet


In this structured dance class children are introduced to slow, graceful dance steps, and will be encouraged to express their emotions through movement. Performers enrolled in Ballet dance classes will develop strength, flexibility, balance and agility by mastering age appropriate Ballet technique, and exploring improvisation and creative movement. Taught with classical music and French terminology, Ballet is known as the building block for all styles of dance!

Dance Theatre

Watch your child build their confidence as a “Triple Threat” performer by honing their musical abilities and combining them with theatrical movement in this combination dance class!

Hip-hop dancers often freestyle, moving to the beat of the music with creative and energetic steps.Whether it's the dynamic footwork of breaking or the rhythmic isolations of popping, hip-hop dance is all about individual style, creativity, and having fun on the dance floor.

If you're into having fun, moving to awesome tunes, and adding a touch of style to your dance, a jazz class is where it's at! Jazz dance is not just about technique; it's also about feeling the music and letting your personality shine on the dance floor. It's a great way to have fun, stay active, and become a smooth dancer! With an influence of both tradition and trends, our Jazz classes incorporate the latest styles, offering our Dancers a well-rounded experience using Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers syllabus.
