Classes

Sunbeams
Mira Taylor, Coach

Sunbeams is an introductory dance class for children ages 3 - 5. Teaches rhythm, basic dance skills, creative movement, music awareness, listening skills and much more. Gives students the skills necessary to move into jazz, tap and ballet and hip hop.


Ballet
Ton Winter, Coach

Ballet Technique classes are the foundation for developing a solid ballet technique with emphasis on understanding correct body placement, proper use of turn out, coordination of the upper body (epaulement), and use of arms (port de bras). Class begins with work at the barre to build strength and coordination, followed by centre exercises, culminating in a grand allegro combination or variation.


Tap
Stephani Madsen, Coach

Tap 1: Introduction to Tap. Ages 5 and up. This class is for anyone that has never taken a tap class or is just learning tap steps. Tap 2: Ages 7 and up. For the beginning tap student that has a brief knowledge of tap and the basic steps. Tap 3: Invitation Only. If you have mastered the tap steps from Tap 2, you will be invited to Tap 3.

Vintage Jazz
Josephine Rausch, Coach

Vintage Jazz!! Jazz from the 1920's, 1930's & 1940's. With African-American roots, solo jazz steps are full of rhythm, personality and inventiveness. Related to rhythm tap, they revel in syncopation and from the theatrical chorus dancers they steal a love of performance. Solo Jazz Steps differ from Show Jazz dance by their natural posture and quirky steps that often draw their inspiration from real characters and contemporary life in America in the 1920’s and 1940’s – the jazz age itself.

Cheer
Courtney Welch and Bree Barrett Coaches

Cheer class is for children ages 7 to 10. These students will work on basic tumbling skills, beginner stunts as well as a variety of cheerleading motions and jumps. They will also work on strength and flexibility, vocal projection cheer and chants, choreographed dance routines and team work skills.


Hip-Hop
Mira Taylor, Coach

Hip Hop is a very energetic style of dance so I hope your kids have lots of energy saved up and are ready to have some fun! Students will learn basic hip hop moves, enhance and develop coordination, and learn to memorize choreography by working on a combination each class. We focus on age appropriate hip hop dancing and music that your kids will love. We offer Children's Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced classes for ages 6 and up.
