Dance Styles
There are several dance styles for which we offer instruction. Please take a moment to browse the different descriptions of each below.

~Tap
A style of dance that manipulates rhythmic patterns. Each class uses a progressive system of tap technique designed to teach basic steps and correct terminology. Tap combinations are constructed into routines at appropriate technique levels.

~Ballet
A classic dance form emphasizing proper technique and alignment. Barre, center floor and across the floor combinations are taught to achieve progression. Ballet is the foundation of all dance movement and provides an excellent base for other forms of dance.

~Jazz
A powerful style of dancing that stresses stretching and strength. Jazz techniques also progress through levels of movements including turns and leaps. Jazz routines are set to contemporary music and are taught at appropriate age and technique levels.

~Clogging
Scottish and Irish in heritage, clogging is similar to tap, but has a style all its own. Cloggers are known for their fancy footwork and fast pace.

~Lyrical
An interpretational form of dance that combines ballet and jazz techniques to create an emotional style. Proper technique is stressed while also encouraging students to individually stylize the movements.

~Street/Hip-Hop
A form of “funky” dancing that emphasizes coordination and speed. Often these combinations involve performing different movements with each part of the body at the same time.

~Pointe
Ballet en pointe

~Acro
The art and skill of floor gymnastics
