Class Descriptions

Posted by DWDancer10 on March 28, 2014 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Ballet - the basis of all forms of dance; an artistic dance form based on an elaborate formal technique, characterized by gestures and movements of grace, precision, and fluidity.

Tap - a form of dance characterized by a tapping sound that is created from metal plates that are attached to both the ball and heel of the dancer's shoe. These metal plates, when tapped against a hard surface, create a percussive sound and as such the dancers are considered to be musicians.

Jazz - a smooth, modern form of dance characterized by technique such as kicks, leaps, and turns based in African-American vernacular dance as well as Caribbean traditional dance.

Lyrical - a dance style that combines elements of Ballet, Modern, and Jazz dance techniques commonly set to popular music with vocals. The name lyrical comes from the word "lyrics" because dancers use the lyrics of a song or music to inspire them to do certain movements or show expression. The goal of a lyrical dancer is to use gesture, facial expression, and controlled movements in order to execute their movements and emotions.

Hip Hop - a social dance style choreographed to hip-hop music based in the art of popping, locking, and breaking using isolated movements, focusing on separating parts of the body. Often freestyle in nature.

Pointe - a strict style of ballet danced on the tips of the toes with special shoes that have a wooden box in the toe.

Pointe - a strict style of ballet danced on the tips of the toes with special shoes that have a wooden box in the toe.

Broadway/Musical Theater - a style characterized by using any form of dance and complimenting it with vocals performed by the dancer

Modern - a style of theatrical dance that rejects the limitations of classical ballet and favors movement deriving from the expression of inner feeling based on principles of fall and recovery as well as contract and release

Clogging - Clogging .uses the rhythm of the music and is a mix of tap steps, Irish dance and square dancing all wrapped up in one. A clogger dances on the heel of the tap shoe more than a traditional tap dancer. Dancers will learn the basic clog and partner steps to current country hits. Dancers may wish to invest in a clogging tap shoe which consists of a jingle tap, however, the jingle tap is optional

Pre-School Combo - an introduction to dance, based in ballet, focused on developing gross motor skills, listening skills, and social interaction with peers. Dancers use creative play within the dance curriculum. This class integrates Tap and Ballet or Jazz and Tap.

Pre Kinder-Dance - an introduction to movement, loosely based in ballet, focused on exposing young students to their peers to develop social interaction as well as working toward developing some gross motor skills. This class integrates Tap, Jazz and Ballet.

ADULT CLASSES: offered at varying times

BALLET/WORKOUT CLASS-Wll incorporate ballet barre excersizes as well as stretching for great health benefits.

ADULT CLOGGING/TAP-NO experience needed. Great workout and leg shaper!

ADULT HIP HOP- Int/Advanced level- will workout and then have a great time learning different choreography.

Contemporary Jazz/Lyrical-ages 18 and up - NO experience needed. Great workout and leg shaper as well as stretching for great health benefits.
