PARENT AND ME CLASS

Parent and me class is a wonderful stepping stone to introducing your little to a classroom. This program is designed in an 8 week session with the intention of transitioning your little dancer into a classroom comfortably.  It is a fun class that focuses on the adult and child experiencing things together and acclimating to a new environment.  You get to be with your child interacting and creating smiles and memories together in a playful and imaginative class. The class will teach following directions, socialization, large motor skills, and self confidence.  At the end of this session, you can choose to sign up for more sessions, if you feel your dancer isn't ready to transition into a class alone or is still to young to, or your dancer can move to the next level into Tiny Tots and attend class alone with you relaxing in our parent room observing through our class windows.

LYRICAL 

Lyrical dance is choreographed to interpret the emotions of the music with the intention that the audience will feel the lyrics of the song.  Lyrical is a technically strong creative mixture of both Ballet and Jazz.

CONTEMPORARY

Contemporary dance almost defies description because it can be balletic or wholly abstract, jazz-influenced or lyrical, structured or unconventional. We fuse this style of dance into our more advanced Lyrical classes.  Switching between the two to keep our dancers well rounded and challenged. 

Ballet class is required to be able to take either of these classes.

MUSICAL THEATER

Musical Theatre class works on the three elements of musical theatre: dancing, acting, and singing. In this class, students take 3-4 weeks to learn the plot, lyrics, choreography, and character development from part of a Broadway show (for example: "Seize The Day" from Newsies). Vocalization will not be taught, but the class emphasizes the importance of singing lyrics and playing a character while dancing. This class is great for getting students stage ready for plays and musicals. Musical theatre choreography is mainly based in jazz and ballet techniques. This is a very fun class where students can expand their creativity, imagination, and step out of their comfort zone.
