Jazz is one of the most popular forms of dance today. Jazz students learn basic technique as well as the latest style of Jazz as seen in Videos, Film and Television. While jazz is an art form in its own right, it is also beneficial to the overall development of the dancer providing a strong foundation of technique - and it is an enjoyable form of exercise!
Tap Dance is known as a favorite discipline because the students are making their own music with their feet. Students learn to improve their rhythm and co-ordination to energetic music.
This enjoyable discipline combines Funk, Jazz, Latin and African dance to bring you the least structured dance form as seen in your favorite videos.
Classical ballet consists of three interrelated elements - Technique, Music and Performance. Students gain a discipline of the mind and spirit as well as the body. Creative Movement, Character, Demi-Pointe and Pointe classes are available. This art form is the basis of dance and should be in every dancer’s class list. Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D.) Ballet Exams are completed in the Spring.
A form of ballet for more experienced female dancers. Classes consist of Pointe technique incorporating classical ballet movements.
This contemporary style of Ballet/Jazz demonstrates extension and balance, using technical ballet moves while telling a story in interpretation of the music. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement. Students should also be registered in a ballet class for best development.
Modern/Contemporary dance is the name given to a dance tradition that arose as a reaction to ballet, using the body to explore space and lines and energy in dance movement. Through the use of various developed techniques typically learned in ballet, students learn to use their natural instincts, impulses, and a release of natural feeling when moving. The dancer tries to release the inner feelings in an outer expression.
Though it often uses the body alignment and movement of ballet, modern dance encompasses a much broader world than ballet. It is movement with freedom and meaning, usually for a serious artistic purpose. Modern/Contemporary dance stresses expressive individuality over conformity of movement. Students should also be registered in a ballet class for best results.
Ballerina Dreams is a modified, therapeutic ballet class for children aged 3 to 13 with physical disabilities. The class focuses on the very basics of ballet and each dancer is paired up with a volunteer mentor who enables their participation in the class.
Taught by a dance instructor, and facilitated by a therapist and mentors, this class allows these children to overcome obstacles and experience being a ballerina. Our dance studio is fully wheelchair accessible.
Graduate classes combine a variety of disciplines including jazz, lyrical, contemporary and tap for the experienced dancer who has limited availability, is 18years or older, and continues to want to be challenged and be part of a competitive dance team.
