Ballet Technique classes are the foundation for training and focus on developing a solid ballet technique with emphasis on understanding correct body placement, proper use of turn out, coordination of the upper body and use of arms.
Class begins with work at the barre to build strength and coordination, followed by center exercises, culminating in a grand allegro combination or variation.
Clear explanations of exercises and theory help students use the ballet vocabulary in a simple, practical way that leads to increased technical understanding, healthy physical development, and lifelong enjoyment.
Students with strong ballet technique, sufficient core and ankle strength, and a teacher's recommendation go on
to study 'en pointe'.
Tap classes focus on rhythm, musicality and timing. All classes begin with an energetic warm-up, across the floor exercises and combinations. Our beginner students explore the fundamental steps of tap dance, learn tap terminology and develop the ability to maintain correct body placement.
Intermediate classes further develop skills, focusing on clarity of sounds and increasing speed as well as dynamics and musicality. Our advanced tap dancers are challenged through improvisational exercises, intricate rhythms and footwork.
