Classes are offered in all major forms of dance- ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary and hip hop.

Ballet

Ballet is a classical dance form demanding grace and precision to execute formalized steps and gestures set in intricate patterns.

Lyrical

Lyrical dance is characterized by fluidity and grace, with the dancer flowing seamlessly from one move to another embodying the story that the lyrics of the music tells.

Tap

Tap is a dance style characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. It focuses on the importance of rhythm and timing.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is a style that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. It focuses on strength and flexibility. 

Jazz

Jazz dance is fast and fun. It uses upbeat music and leaps, kicks and turns to interpret traditional and not-so-traditional movements. It can be sassy, theatrical or avant-garde 

Hip Hop

Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It can be free and fun or intricate and technical.
