Tap and Jazz

Tap classes are available for ages five through adult. All ballet students are encouraged to study tap in addition to ballet, as it helps them improve their sense of coordination, rhythm, and musicality. Our adult classes also offer a fun way to exercise both mind and body. Adult class drop-ins are welcome.

Jazz classes are available for ages seven through adult. All ballet students are encouraged to study jazz in addition to ballet, as it helps improve flexibility, musicality, and use of space. Jazz is an integral part of dance education for students who wish to become professional dancers.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance combines components of different dance styles including classical ballet, jazz, modern, jazz, and lyrical. Focusing on the contract and release of the body, and the unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction, dancers aim to correlate the mind and the body within fluid dance moves. Dancers develop proper body alignment, strength and flexibility, rhythmic and musical phrasing, and self-expression while employing floor work, fall and recovery, and the improvisation characteristics of modern dance. Classes are available for Intermediate Foundation students and above. Drop-in students should contact the office before class time to arrange placement and payment.

Stretch and Tone

This class is structured to help dancers build strength and flexibility that furthers their command of technique. It also helps prevent injuries and promotes better body awareness and breathing techniques.
