Basic skills continue to progress to becoming more advanced, choreography retention becomes part of the curriculum, as well as an introduction to floor patterns and team work. 

Jazz
Energy and Precision

Jazz is an upbeat, energizing style of dance, that takes technical elements of ballet, fast footwork of tap, and some of the move and groove from hip hop! While jazz can be fun, we do also emphasize technique; pointed toes, proper positioning, flexibility, core strength, and more. Styles can range from Broadway style jazz to Street jazz. Dancers work with age appropriate choreography to gain an understanding of proper jazz technique. 

Hip Hop
Style and Groove

Hip Hop dance is a range of street dance styles primarily performed to hip hop music that have evolved as part of hip hop culture. Rhythm, musicality and groove are the foundation of the class. 

Ballet
The Foundation of Dance

Ballet is the foundation of all dance, and is a must for the serious dancer. It enhances grace, posture, discipline, core strength, flexibility and more. Dancers also get to enjoy the rich tradition and history of ballet. 

Tap
Rhythm and Style

Tap focuses on rhythm, footwork, musicality, choreography retention and improvisation. Tap dancing encourages dancers to find their own rhythm and style, at an age-appropriate pace. 

Lyrical/Contemporary
Ballet & Jazz Fusion

Lyrical/Contemporary is a fusion of dance styles, heavily influenced by ballet and jazz. It  can be a little less structured than ballet, and a little more technical than jazz. Lyrical/ Contemporary allows the dancer to find interpretation of music, work as a group for floor patterns and lifts, and challenges the dancers to find the next level of strength and technique. 

Modern
Fluid and Freeform

Modern is an expressive style of dance that challenges the structured dance technique of classical ballet. This style can be characterized by breath, body articulation, and floor work, and can follow a style developed by artists such as Martha Graham, Isadora Duncan, Merce Cunningham and Alvin Ailey.

Streets & Stage and Musical Theatre feature a combination of dance styles, including basic hip hop, tap and theatre style jazz. These are fun, expressive, animated dance classes focusing on acting, singing, and some musical history.
