Classes

Ballet

This is the foundation of all other dance! Ballet aids in making a great Tap dancer, Jazz dancer, gymnast, model, etc. It provides poise, correct body alignment, flexibility, balance and lightness. Ballet is a very discipline type of dance; therefore we do not recommend that a child starts until the age of six.

Pointe

Pointe is offered to the intermediate and advanced ballet dancers. Students must be at the age of 12 to begin Pointe, and have had at least two to four years of ballet training. By this time we feel that muscle tone and coordination is more developed, along with the small bones in the feet-which are not totally fused together until the age of about seventeen.

Tap

Beginning at the age of 2. Over the years it has been proven that the sound of the tap shoes in addition to the upbeat music, helps hold the interest of a toddler and pre-schooler. Tap focuses on the rhythmic movements and sounds of the feet.

Jazz

Beginning at the age of 5. Their attention span and coordination level is ready to take on more difficult movements. Jazz includes kicks, turns, leaps, isolations and more.

Hip Hop

Beginning about the age of 8-10. A type of street dance that incorporates jerky, direct, sharp and smooth movements. We recommend that our students have a background of Jazz before taking on Hip Hop.

Polynesian (Hawaiian / Tahitian)

Beginning at the age of 5 or 6. Their attention span and coordination level allows them to take on the task of coordinating their arms and hips together. Hawaiian is slow and the whole story is told with the hands. Tahitian is done to the rapid beat of the drums, and primarily works the hips to the beat of the music. Certain props are used in the Tahitian dance such as EE’s, Poi Balls, Uli Uli’s, Bamboo Sticks, and more. These particular props are used to help advance the dancer.

Tumbling

Beginning at the age of 4. Aids in the development of large motor skills and flexibility. We also offer tumbling for cheer-leading preparation.

Modeling

Pageant and Fashion modeling are the two types involved. Private coaching is offered by appointment only, to prepare the student for an upcoming event. This also involves preparing the student on interviewing skills and speaking clearly in front of public.

Ballroom for the Bride and Groom

Upon appointment only. A choreographed ballroom routine for the bride and groom to be performed at their wedding reception.
