This Introductory ballet class will emphasize Balle Barre and Centre Floor exercises. This class will teach the basic ballet dance skills necessary for musical theatre auditions.

The rhythm and movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels and toes of a dancer’s shoes, transforms the dancer into a percussive musician.

This Tap Class is an Introduction to this dynamic dance discipline where students will learn rhythm, style and musicality through percussive footwork. Students will learn technique, terminology, and various styles of tap. Tap was initially popularized in Hollywood by such great dancers as Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Shirley Temple and more recently, by the hugely popular performers Tap Dogs, Stomp and Riverdance.

Jazz also has its own movement vocabulary ranging from the isolation of certain body parts to the movement of the entire body with the accents of musical rhythms. Jazz dance can take on many different characteristics and styles, including Street Jazz, Percussive, Broadway, Contemporary and Lyrical. Jazz classes can be patterned in any of these styles or a combination of them. Emphasis is on the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy, and style.
