Dance


Ballet

Ballet is the foundation of all dance styles. The study of Ballet focuses on proper technique and body alignment and builds coordination, strength, agility and grace. Ballet challenges dancers to find their musicality within the classical music repertoire that ballet is performed to.  Ballet is vital to further any dance or musical theater career.

Tap

Hip-Hop/Jazz-Funk

Hip-Hop dancing was originally known in its New York roots as Break Dancing. Through the decades many styles have fallen under the umbrella of Hip-Hop such as Popping, House, Wacking and Boogaloo, which are all their own dance styles. Another dance from which emerged from the roots of Hip-Hop is called Jazz-Funk. Jazz-Funk is the fusion of Jazz dance, Hip-Hop and Wacking styles.

In this class our teachers will use the fundamentals of Hip Hop/Jazz-Funk and other closely related styles to expose students to the creative movements in these styles. Coordination, musicality, strength, flexibility, memorization and body isolations will give each dancer the tools they need to grow into their own style of Hip-Hop/Jazz-Funk. Jazz dance class goes hand in hand with hop to help with extra practice in isolations, coordination and musicality exercises.
