Acro & Flexibility

Acro-dance and Flexibility classes are a great way to pack a lot of technical training into fun segments. Students in Acro will learn cartwheels, roundoffs, lifts, flips, stage tricks, and so much more! Our flexibility classes are a chance to focus on proper development of flexibility in a way that safely promotes muscle elasticity and strength.

These classes are a great addition to any technique classes!

Tap Dance Class
Jazz

Come join one of our jazz classes, and get ready to have some fun dancing to your favorite songs! Each class will have stretching and warm-up, and include learning the footwork, movements, and body isolations that set Jazz apart.

Young Ballerinas
Ballet

Our ballet classes focus on the technique and expression of this classical dance form. Students will learn the foundations of this style, adding focus on personal expression and character portrayal as they progress. Each class will include barre work, center work, and leaps and jumps across the floor, as we seek to strengthen muscle groups and develop motor skills and flexibility. 

Modern Dance Leap
Lyrical

Lyrical is a beautifully expressive dance style. Its is a Jazz-based dance form with many similarities borrowed from Ballet. It is most often danced to music with lyrics, and is focused on the deeply emotional expression of movement.

Students in a lyrical class greatly benefit from also being enrolled in a Jazz or Ballet technique class.
