My Shadow and Me
My Shadow and Me is our all inclusive version of "Mommy and Me." My Shadow and Me classes are for dancers 12 months to 3 years old. It is an introduction to dance that includes singing, dancing, socialization and learning through props and repetition.
Introduction to Ballet
This class is for dancers 3 to 5 years old. Dancers will learn the basic fundamentals of ballet while developing their fine and gross motor skills. Dancers will be guided through fun and creative movement games and action songs.
Ballet is the foundation of all dance. Students are highly encouraged to study it first or in combination with other classes. Dancers will learn proper terminology and technique. Classes will include ballet stretches, barre work, center work, across the floor, and choreography.
Lyrical/Contemporary is a fluid form of dance done to popular ballads and slower contemporary music. The dancer is taught to interpret his or her movement with feeling, motion and style. They will learn to tell a story or create the picture of the song. This style combines the fluid beauty of ballet with the more sharp moves in jazz. A Ballet or Jazz class is recommended along with lyrical/contemporary to build in technique.
Jazz classes are fun and energetic. They include such elements as kicks, leaps, turns, splits, and isolations. Classes include stretch and strengthening exercises, floor work, and across the floor progressions in addition to a center floor combinations.
Tap classes are designed to develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. The class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun.
Hip Hop is a high energy class combining street dance with funk and jazz commonly seen on TV and in music videos. Hip-Hop teaches, coordination, strength, flexibility, rhythm and endurance.
New this year! Musical Theater dance classes focus on learning proper dance technique while exploring the various dance styles (Tap & Jazz) and music used in Broadway shows.
