Tots Dance Classes (princess and pirates class)

The tots dance program is specifically designed to provide children with the joy of dance and movement. Basic fundamentals are taught in four dance genres including ballet, jazz, tap and acrobatics. Children focus on strength, timing, balance, rhythm, flexibility and coordination. Age appropriate songs and activities are paired with technical training to provide a fun and exciting dance environment. Your child will not even realize they are learning! Students use many props such as wings, crowns, ribbons and wands to learn through association.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is the exploration of the total movement potential of the body. Unlike other forms of dance, it is not bound by set standards or defined styles. Instead, it seeks to express a personalized vision, often through experimentation and collaboration, in exploring new choreographic possibilities. It derives its techniques from both classical and modern dance, either updating or distorting them, resulting in a hybrid form derived from literature, architecture, visual arts, circus and other artistic disciplines. Students learn to become the dance not just learn how to dance.

 

Ballet

A strong ballet technique will bring you to a whole new level in all dance styles.  Well executed ballet demands a lot of the student. Focus and concentration is crucial and requires a lot of patience.  Classes will focus on posture, turn-out, alignment, grace and poise.  Ballet is an excellent way to enjoy increased fitness, body awareness for performance or personal enjoyment.Ballet  classes combine both art and grace with the development of good tone, technique, and placement while following the Royal Academy of Dance technique.
