Class Info

  • Jazz

    An upbeat form of dance that teaches technique, enhances flexibility and strength, and includes many jumps and turns.
  • Hip-Hop

    An energizing class incorporating the new styles of music videos and street dance.

  • Acro-Dance

    A combination of gymnastics and dance, focusing on improving flexibility and strength. Until social distancing measures are lifted students will be reviewing and learning new tricks that don't require hands on spotting. Once regulations are lifted tricks requiring these measure will resume. Dancers in levels 4 and up are required to take an additional technical class ( ballet or jazz) in order to develop the technique needed for the more advanced levels.

  • Musical Theatre

    A combination of dance, acting and singing.

  • Kinderdance and Primary Classes

    In order to keep our youngest dancers safe these classes will be suspended until social distancing measures are lifted. Designed for our youngest students, these classes allow children to explore creativity and develop a technical foundation in a stress free enfironment. These classes introduce the basics of dance through creative play at the same time teaching them the social setting and aspects of dance.

  • Ballet

    The core of dance, this dance form focuses on improving the strength and technique of the dancer. A great class to take to help out in your other dance forms.

  • Tap

    A rhythmical discipline that uses different styles to work on technical footwork.

  • Combo Classes

    Great classes for children to incorporate more than one dance form within 45 minutes. Includes, jazz/ballet, tap/ballet, hip-hop/ballet, and acro/ballet

  • Lyrical

    A contemporary dance form combining the likes of ballet and jazz. Dancers must have previous experience in lyrical or in both Ballet and Jazz.

  • Silks/Circus Conditioning

    Silks/Cirque Conditioning classes introduce students to the circus performing arts.  Classes will regularly include strength and flexibility training.  Students will get to "fly" using different equipment including silks and straps.  Discover the fun and skills involved to put together a circus performance. We are working to get the students in the air every second week until social distancing measures are lifted.  This will allow for proper disinfecting of the equipment. The "ground" classes will focus on the strength and conditioning portion of the training.
