Recent enhancements to our ballet program will secure the style, dedication, and reputation ballet has established. Our ballet program begins with a Cecchetti Method base to develop technique and placement, and concludes with the Russian Method for improved performance and movement quality.
Through our Ballet program, students will be able to identify and demonstrate both basic and advanced ballet movements and positions, establish a correct understanding of body alignment, and illustrate proper class etiquette. Students presenting the necessary skills and growth in ballet will have the opportunity for more advanced training in a Pointe Technique class.
Students will learn classic jazz and lyrical dance technique while developing rhythm, coordination and musicality skills. Our jazz classes offer an upbeat and energized environment for students to fall in love with dance. Our lyrical classes teach students to connect with the music and express emotions through movement. Classes include a combination of warming up, center and across-the-floor technical skills, and a variety of jazz/lyrical choreography throughout the year.
Our popular hip hop classes focus on musicality, body isolations, coordination, and having FUN! All of our teachers use age appropriate music and costuming for each of our teen hip hop classes. In addition to learning various techniques of hip hop, students also work on their performance quality and ability to learn choreography quickly.
