 STYLE DESCRIPTIONS:

 

Ballet

Beauty, flow and elegance are inherent in the elements of ballet. Ballet is the classical dance form that can be mastered by itself or used as a technical base or supplement to other dance forms. Classes focus on overall body alignment and awareness with emphasis on proper usage of feet and legs and execution of turnout. Carriage of upper body and arms are also a primary focus. Traditional barre work, center work and combinations are included in all classes.

 

 

Pre-dance/Intro to Dance

The class encourages free expression while teaching the basic foundations of dance, including rhythm, movement quality, space, body awareness, and shape.  Dancers are introduced to the mechanics of turns, balance, leaps, picking up choreography, and the knowledge base needed to progress to beginning/advanced beginning ballet and jazz classes.  The child’s imagination and self-esteem are encouraged and strengthened through dance.
