Classical ballet is best known for its unique features and textures, such as turn-out, high extensions, its graceful, flowing, execution of precise movements; and its ethereal qualities. The syllabus is based on a progression of exercises from the barre to the center and across the floor, preparing the body and mind for technique that develops good placement, proper breathing, coordination, strength and grace. Classical ballet training is the basis for all dancing.


Tap dancing is an American theatrical dance distinguished by percussive footwork.  Tap is a fun style of dance that anyone can learn regardless of previous dance experience.  Tap builds strength in the legs and feet in addition to increasing flexibility in the hips, knees and ankles.  Cognitive abilities are also enhanced as tap dancers develop both mental and muscle memory.

Classes will teach the fundamentals of rhythm, coordination, technique and terminology.  A variety of music is used including Broadway, pop and jazz.  Classes consist of a warm-up, center work, across the floor movements and a choreographed combination.


Jazz is a rhythmic stylized form of dancing conceived in America and influenced by a variety of dance styles and music such as classical ballet, modern, lyrical, acro and hip-hop.  Jazz is one of the most popular styles of dance and in turn has influenced a great deal of Broadway and Hollywood choreography. Jazz is energetic, fun and gives the dancer an opportunity to showcase their individual style and originality. Benefits of jazz include increased strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination.Classes will explore traditional and stylized jazz movements. Class structure consists of a warm-up that includes stretching exercises and isolation movements, technique and terminology, leaps, jumps and turns across the floor and a choreographed combination.

Lyrical and Contemporary

Lyrical is a dance style that blends ballet and jazz dance. Lyrical emphasizes a strong foundation in dance technique and vocabulary. This dance style is often used to express strong emotions and the lyrics of the music serve as inspiration for movements and expressions.

Contemporary is also a style of expressive dance and combines elements of modern, jazz and ballet. Contemporary dance stress fluidity, versatility and improvisation with a strong emphasis on floorwork.

Hip hop dance is a broad category of urban styles including breaking, locking, popping and jazz funk. Hip hop is a powerful and energetic form of dancing. It is unique in that it allows dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities.  This hip hop class teaches musicality and coordination through isolations, across the floor movements, choreographed combinations and freestyle exercises.
