BASIC BEGINNER BALLET

This class is designed for the adult who has never had dance before.  The basic terms, alignment, and posture is taught with any student limitations in mind.  This class is designed to prepare the dancer so they can proceed to beginner ballet when they feel comfortable.

 

BEGINNER BALLET

This class is designed for the dancer with an understanding of the basics of ballet.  We will continue to build strength in the basics as well as build on the dancer’s vocabulary, strength, stretch, and musicality.

 

ADVANCED BEGINNER BALLET

This class is for the dancer who has begun to feel comfortable in beginner ballet and is ready to challenge themselves more.  We will start stringing more steps together in combinations, challenge our strength and coordination at the barre and center, execute more challenging petite and grand allegros, as well as continuing to  focus on musicality and alignment.

 

INTERMEDIATE BALLET

This is for the dancer who has been dancing for while.  The dancer should be accomplished enough to be able to focus on more complicated combinations and steps. We focus on strength and artistry a great deal at this level.

 

ADVANCED BALLET

The advanced ballet class is for the accomplished dancer who wishes to enjoy a complete and well balanced class as well as the intermediate dancer who wishes to advance their skill level.

 

GENTLE BALLET

Gentle ballet is a basic beginner ballet class.  It is suited for anyone who has body limitations due to injury, illness, or life.  We take a very gentle approach to ballet and have an absolutely zero impact class.  We do not jump nor turn but we build strength and stretch through classical ballet movements.  While we no longer offer a class designated only as gentle ballet all of our classes can be modified to gentle ballet.  Just make sure you let the instructor know that is what you are needing.

 

BALLET CONDITIONING

This is a strengthening class for any level of dancer or non dancer.  We employ resistance bands, light weights, and our own body reistance to work arms, legs, and core.  It is a good full body strengthening class!  We always end with a nice long stretch to lengthen everything we have just worked.

 

TAP

Beginner tap is for the dancer with no prior training.  Intermediate tap is for the more experienced dancer looking to increase vocabulary and speed.

 

CLASSIC JAZZ

Advanced Beginner 

This class is designed for a dancer with some prior knowledge of dance terms and body movement.  Classic Jazz is a style performed from the core, with clean and strong lines emanating from the hips and chest.  Think Broadway style jazz.
