Dance Class Descriptions
Class Level Distinctions
LEVEL I – Training and perfecting basic skills and techniques.
LEVEL II – Intermediate (solid training/consistency in the basics of the style & ready for intermediate skills)
LEVEL III – Advanced (years of extensive training/consistency with intermediate & some advanced skills in the style & ready to learn to train at the professional level)
Level IV – Pre-Professional/Professional level abilities in style, technique, and performance skills.
Please note: These are general-level distinctions. Each class level is ultimately determined by the needs of the students enrolled in the class.
Ballet is the foundation of technical dance training, and is the root of most dance styles studied today. Ballet develops strength and consistency through exercises that incorporate a meticulous level of detail (i.e. alignment/core control, turnout of the legs, clarity in the feet, grace of the arms, poise of the head and neck, etc.) Ballet trains the dancer’s body lines and control from head to toe. A strong foundation in ballet allows a dancer to successfully train in all other dance styles.
Jazz is a foundational dance style that emphasizes: rhythm, syncopation, grounded movement, isolations, body alignment, core strength, coordination and flexibility. Dancers are encouraged to infuse style and personality into their movement by executing set combinations as well as exploring freestyle movement.
Hip Hop & Breakdance
Hip Hop is a grounded, street style form of dance usually performed to hip hop music, or music which emphasizes clear rhythms, beats and/or lyrics. Many aspects of hip hop technique are explored such as: isolations, pop/locking, animating, tutting, whacking, house, krumping, breakdancing, etc. Dancers are encouraged to infuse style and personality into their movement as they train, through executing set combinations and exploring freestyle.
Tap is a historical dance form that emphasizes rhythm, syncopation and musicality of the feet in tap shoes. Combinations can be performed to music with the feet following the beats provided, or without music (a cappella) where the feet generate the musicality on their own. Tap dancing highly trains a dancer’s musicality, coordination and stamina, and is widely used in many commercial and professional dance arenas.
Lyrical is a form of jazz dance that has evolved to incorporate the staples of ballet, jazz and modern dance techniques. There is much emphasis on interpreting the lyrics, mood or intent of the music, to depict specific emotions. Often there is a concept or story dancers are working with to find ways of expressing emotion through their bodies. Improvisation is used to help dancers explore their movement more deeply and personally.
Contemporary stems from modern, jazz and ballet dance techniques. This form often utilizes: modern dance’s emphasis on the torso and use of improvisation, jazz dance’s focus on grounded/rhythmic movements and ballet dance’s attention to controlled legwork and lines. The choreography can contain narrative or be abstract in nature, and will challenge dancers to move, think and explore outside of their comfort zone. Improvisation is used to help dancers explore their movement more deeply and personally.
Tumbling includes technical skills derived from acrobatics and gymnastics. We use tumbling class to increase the muscle strength/flexibility and agility of our dancers’ bodies, and we teach the skills in progression to ensure proper technique and safety. Skills taught may vary from beginning to advanced levels, and are determined based on the level of individuals as well as the class as a whole.

Ballet / Tap / Tumbling (BTT) is a combo class we offer to dancers ranging in age from 2-6. This class focuses on exposing the student to (3) particular styles for a solid introduction to dance.
