Telling a story with body movement and emotions. Fluidity and abstract body movements. Progression over the years will become more complex and intricate.
Jazz: Your child will learn proper dance technique such as isolations of the body, improving performance quality and developing complex rhythms and patterns. Class is based on ballet technique layered with traditional jazz movement. Broadway, Street and Contemporary Jazz will all be taught.
Tap: Designed to develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of Broadway and Street style tap. Exercises will focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. Developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun!
Hip-Hop: High-energy class that infuses the latest styles of street dancing, breaking, popping and much more! Encouraging students to step outside of the box by bringing their own individual styles and personalities to the floor. Students will build stamina and strength to properly execute tricks and body movements.
Mommy (Daddy, Grandma, Aunt..etc) and Me: The perfect class for you and your child who is of walking age (1-2 years old) who has the need to move and groove! This class focuses on basic warm up movements, group dances, games and activities, and the fundamentals of being in a class environment.
Improv: This class teaches your child to think quick on their feet! Dancers will gain a new level of confidence, personal creative expression and musicality.
"The Hour of the Legend": Much like a cheerleaders open gym, dancers will have the opportunities to perfect moves they are learning in class. Whether it be a turn, jump or combination. The floor will be theirs. Teachers will be there to assist and coach the students along, helping them to become a true Elite Legend!
Flexin' for Dance: Focusing on the absolute range of movement in a joint or series of joints, and length in muscles that cross the joints to induce a bending movement or motion. Examples: "Flexistretcher", resistance bands, calf and foot stretching.
