Lyrical & Comtemporary:
Theatrical (Jazz, Tap & Song):
Jazz classes are high energy and fun! Jazz dancing combines unique moves and combos, fancy footwork, leaps and turns concentrating on solid basic technique, strength and flexibility.
Jazz dancers are encouraged to add their own personality and make each step their own. This is a dynamic style-incorporating many routines to popular music, old time musical and modern musical styles and classic to broadway to street/hip hop styles. Each group will learn a Jazz and song and dance routine for performances. In class we concentrate on a warm up, corner work then work on routines. In this class more advanced groups will also learn kick routines.
Tap classes are lively & rhythmical - tapping makes the performer, not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician. A class that strengthens timing, musicality and rhythm incorporating old time music, Broadway classic and funky, modern instrumental musics and popular pop songs. In the class you will do combination steps, corner work and work on performance routines.
