Ballet: Theatrical art form using dancing and music to convey a story or theme. Conventional poses and steps are combined with light flowing figures. Ballet is considered to be the foundation of all artistic dance. It provides a disciplined, structured technique in counterbalance to the freedom of movement. It's meticulous attention to technical detail makes it invaluable for any serious dancer.

Jazz: Form of dance developed and characterized by rhythms, ensemble playing and varying degrees of improvisation. Very much like Ballet, Jazz tends to be very technical, but the wider range of musical options lends itself to more interpretation.

Lyrical: A fluid style that blends movements from European classical ballet, American modern Jazz, and other world forms. The dancer, through choreographic expression, interprets the lyrics and/or quality of the music. This integrated form allows for freedom of self-expression and has become popular in dance competitions.

Contemporary: Incorporates elements of modern dance, ballet, and jazz with a wide variety of music or in silence. The movements often reflect the point of view of the dancer.

Tap: Tap dancing started with the Africans in early America who would beat out rhythms in their dancing with brushing and shuffling movements of their feet. Modern tap dancing began to evolve in the years 1900 to 1920 due to the mixing of Irish clogging and African American tap dances. It provides a rhythmic framework for the feet and other body parts.

Hip Hop: An umbrella term for many styles of dance, it includes street moves such as popping, locking, and breaking (old School) and a melting pot of movements that can come from anywhere or anytime (new School);
the two together are commonly called “new style.” Backed by popular music (rap, funk, rhythm and blues, and techno), it has many characteristics of African traditional dance and early vernacular jazz dance.

Musical Theatre/Character/Broadway: similar to a play that has a plot, singing, and dancing.

Acro - “Acrobatics”, focuses on the art, skill, technique and performance skill of gymnastic tricks.

Stretch & Conditioning For Dance -improves technique and performance by strengthening the body's core while improving coordination, balance and alignment, and flexibility.

Barre Fitness- Exercises to focuses on toning the entire body using the ballet barre and a floor matt.

Technique For Turns & Leaps: A successful turning and leap program developed to produce and build on technical abilities to produce flawless turns and leaps. The class focuses on several exercises to strengthen technique and core muscles.

Contact Improvisation Class - Contact improvisation is a partnering dance form. Through this dance form each individual learns how to support their partner while taking care of his or her own physical and emotional needs. Using skills such as rolling, falling, catching, releasing, and giving and supporting weight each dancer learns how to replace movement which is muscled through for a more easy and efficient way of moving.
