CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


Ballet

Considered the foundation to all dance forms, Ballet is the contrast between strong leg movements and the graceful upper body. Technique is based on body alignment, proper placement and posture. Barre and center floor work are combined with choreography combinations to teach musicality, rhythm, coordination and flexibility.

Contemporary
Contemporary dance utilizes both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet and modern dance’s stress on the torso and employs contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery and improvisation characteristic of modern dance. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed and direction are also used. Dancers use motion to interpret music and express emotion.

Hip Hop
Hip-hop dance is a vibrant form of dance that combines a variety of freestyle movements to create a cultural piece of art. An exciting and derivative style that incorporates many elements and techniques from most styles of dance. Class begins with a warm-up in the center, progresses through various freestyle exercises and ends with a choreography combination.

Acro
Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context.
