We offer dance classes in Central Ohio specifically designed for ages 2–Adult. Our classes focus on warm-up, stretching, turning and leaping, technique work, and learning a dance routine to Christian music. For beginners under the age of five, one year of Creative Movement is suggested prior to taking other classes. Routines are taught in a wide variety of dance styles including Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical/Classical Ballet and Pointe, Modern, Tap/Stomp, and Breaking.
We have open discussion on Bible verses and important topics at the end of class, which students may choose to join or just listen in. Each class ends with prayer.
In addition to the standard school-year classes, we have a Summer Program which includes summer dance camps and classes.
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.
