Jazz dance continuously evolves and remains popular across all ages.
Jazz requires a dancer to own their dancing with power, technique, confidence and style. Jazz incorporates strong performance aspects of dance. This includes technical jumps and turns with strong and sharp movements.
Contemporary dance combines strong and controlled movements of ballet and modern dance. Contempory also strongly involves a free feeling in the torso. Our classes include floor work, contract and release, fall and recovery, along with improvisation movements.
Tap dancing has become a very distinct art form. It is represented in many musicals and artistic performances.
Tap shoes have small metal plates that create an audible, percussive sound known as ‘tapping’. Performed with or without music, tap dancing is fun, energetic and great for developing rhythm.
Our studio is one of very few local providers of Tap dancing classes. We are proud to be able to offer this style of dance.
Our hip-hop dance classes include a variety of different street dance styles. This includes popping, locking and funk. All of our hip-hop classes are also performed to age appropriate music.
