Contemporary dance is not a specific dance technique but a combination of ballet, lyrical, modern, jazz, and unique movement sometimes referred to as “dance fusion.”
BALLET / POINTE
We offer three different types of ballet classes: Lyrical Ballet is an interpretive style of ballet. Classical Ballet is traditional and formal. Pointe is the part of classical ballet…
TAP / STOMP
Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by a tapping sound that is created from the metal plates on the bottom of the dancer’s shoe. This style of dance increases motor skills and rhythm.
Jazz dancing is a fast paced style of dance. We incorporate Lyrical and Contemporary styles into our dance routines when possible for variety.
Hip Hop is an athletic form of dance that involves isolated body movements and some beginner level gymnastics skills.
Break-dancing, or breaking, originated in the streets of New York City in the 1970’s. It is not a studio-derived dance and is improvisational by nature.
Acro is an upbeat and energetic style of dance. It combines elements of Jazz dance as well as traditional gymnastics skills to create unique and exciting choreography.
Creative Movement is a style of dance designed for 2-4 year olds just learning to dance. This style teaches young children balance, rhythm, and body awareness.
Modern dance focuses on creativity and self-expression rather than on technical virtuosity. Modern dance is a more relaxed, free style form of dance in which choreographers use emotions and lyrics to design their own steps, in contrast to ballet’s structured code of steps. Dancers often rely on each other in modern dance to tell a story.
