Keiki Tap/Hip Hop (4-6yrs old):

-This class opens up imagination and encourages experimentation. We will be working with beats, patterns, and levels. The first half of class educates the dancers in how to operate their tap shoes as musical instruments, testing balance and coordination. The second half gets their bodies bouncing and rolling to fun rhythms and beats motivating them to explore different ways to move their muscles.

Beg/Intermediate Ballet (7+):

-This class uses Ballet technique to train the body for consistency in balance, flexibility, and muscle control. The goal in this class is to make hard work look effortless. This is a great way to educate yourself in ballet terms and techniques while training your body for professionalism. (Must have self-motivation and ability to move at your own pace. This is a multilevel class)

Beg/Intermediate Jazz/Tap (7+):

-This class presents the basics in Jazz and Tap technique and terminology. This class will strengthen and stretch the dancers comprehension of music, technical movement, and retain choreography. This class is 1 ½ hrs. The end of class will be used for pushing more advanced students and extra time for anyone who would like to practice certain moves they found new and challenging.

Intermediate/Adv Jazz:

-This class is intended to challenge dancers who already know how to attack choreography with proper ballet technique and poses strength and flexibility. This class is fast paced and will require dancers to use their core and endurance to execute movements properly and safely. This class will heighten your ability to hear music and perform choreography with deep feeling and expression.

Hip Hop/Breaking:

-This class teaches basic Breaking and other styles of Hip Hop, using movement to stir creativity and stylized execution of choreography and free style. Come get a little taste of everything while working up a good sweat. (popping, locking, wacking, voguing, waving, tutting, ect.) OPEN BREAKING is just an extension to Hip Hop/Breaking class and provides extra time to Q/A and practice anything your personally trying to conquer ***requires clean bottomed street shoes
