Ballet

The foundation of all dance forms. Ballet helps with physical discipline, general body awareness, and control coordinating with technique, including position of feet and arms, and terminology. Ballet also strengthens the understanding of the relationship between music, rhythm and controlled movement.

 

Broadway Babies

A jazz inspired, theaterical dance class for those who love to perform. 

 

Contemporary

Blends the sustained controlled movement of ballet with freedom, power, and dynamics of jazz and modern dance. Contemporary is known to be the "no rules" style of dance, combining different styles to create a story of dance.
