class descriptions

BALLET

Students will learn classical and contemporary ballet techniques and terminology based on a combination of the American/Balanchine, Cecchetti, French and Russian methods. Each class includes barre exercises, center floor work and across-the-floor combinations that are grouped accordingly when levels are combined.  Students on pointe will be guided accordingly through a partial and eventual full ballet class in pointe shoes.

MODERN

Students will learn the foundation of classical modern dance techniques ranging from Doris Humphrey to Lester Horton.  Each class includes floor work, center work and across-the-floor combinations studying fall and recovery, suspension and release and connection of breath to movement.

 

CONTEMPORARY

Through aspects of modern release technique, contemporary ballet and jazz, students will explore movement through a homogenous filter that creates this style.  Class will include elements of time, space, energy, emotional content and artistic exploration through complex floor work, center exercises, improvisation, and combinations.

JAZZ

Students will learn this style through emphasizing the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy and the proper execution of turns and leaps.  Based on various styles of jazz including Giordano, Fosse and an urban vernacular dancers will learn to layer current styles with existing classic movement.  Class will include a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions and combinations.

TAP          

Focusing on rhythm, timing, percussion and preciseness, tap classes will be a progression of classical and rhythmic tap steps and combinations that will challenge students as a percussive musician while teaching them to pick up steps with quick precision and rhythmic integrity.

HIP HOP

Students will explore their own personal style related to the street dance styles of the 1970's to our current and ever evolving language of dance steps.  Classes will include isolations, floor work and stylization of self expressiveness through the lens of hip hop artists and musicians.

ACRO

In a combination of floor gymnastics and dance, students will focus on building upon their ballet and modern technique with standing and inverted movement of acrobatic skills.

CATS

Conditioning, Acrobatics, Turns, & Stretch. This class will focus on core strengthening, flexibility and entire body workouts designed to increase range of motion, strength and to create body awareness for injury prevention. The use of thera-bands, resistance balls and weights may be used as well as somatic techniques and methods. Acrobatics and Turns will be taught in conjunction with other class curriculum.
