CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

JAZZ
Combines the arts of ballet and modern dance trends to create a free style technique of movement, unlimited in expression. Classes include a 20 minute warm-up, then across-the-floor movement with jazz technique, and culminate with a combination (choreographed routine).

BALLET
Classical ballet technique that builds grace, poise, and strength while developing correct body placement. Each class starts with approximately one-half hour at barre, then center work and across-the-floor movement. For elementary school age and up. While age is a consideration, a student’s level of skill is more important for class placement.

FUNK JAZZ

HIP-HOP
Funky, “America’s Best Dance Crew,” popular “street” styles of dance, with Jazz Technique.
