Creative Movement: This class is for students ages 2 1/2 - 3 years of age. This special class is designed to teach children creative movement dances and dance class etiquette through imagination, fun and creativity. We concentrate on developing children's physical awareness motor skills, musicality, discipline, creativity, structured improvisation games and age- appropriate lesson plans.
Ballet: Ballet is the fundamental art form of most dance styles. This class will help promote grace, control and poise. For younger children we incorporate imagination and fun while teaching ballet technique in a nurturing environment.
Tap: This is a rhythmic and upbeat art form that allows dancers to communicate through sound. Dancers learn the name of the steps, learn how to increase their sound accuracy, pace and execution of each movement and is enjoyed by both boys and girls!
Combination classes: This hour long class is separated into two parts. Children learn two dance styles in one class. The first half of the class is devoted to one dance style while the second half focuses on the other. Students must be at least 4 years old to participate. These classes may include the following combinations: Ballet/ Tap, Tap/Jazz, Ballet/ Hip Hop and Tap/ Hip Hop.
Jazz: This fun dance class incorporates sharp and percussive movements. Students will be exposed to age appropriate styles of popular dance in conjunction with traditional jazz dance technique.
Hip - Hop: This class explores rhythm and coordination. Dancers will explore different age appropriate styles of hip-hop and learn fun routines to upbeat music.
Acting: We offer great acting classes to children 6 years of age and older. Classes include monologue, script work and structured improvisation games.
Private Lessons: We offer private lessons in acting and dance. This is a great way to get personalized attention in the field you are interested in. Private lessons are great for extra technique practice, competition, audition, college placement, personal development or for an upcoming social event. Instructors travel to you or at a studio space near your location. ( Based on availability )
Modern Dance: Modern dance combines the energy of Jazz with the technique and grace of Ballet. There are many styles and forms of modern dance and we concentrate on exposing children to multiple styles. The dance is done barefoot to help dancers ground their movement. The art form itself explores concepts, themes, movement quality, creativity and technique. Dancers must be at least 8 years of age or have had previous ballet training. Modern dance is recommended for any dancer looking to go to college for dance as this is the most popular form of dance taught on the collegiate level.
