Ballet is the foundation for most forms of dance and we encourage students to add a ballet class to any tap, jazz, or hip-hop class they may be taking. While it may be difficult to see the connection between ballet and other styles, it builds strength, flexibility, and balance that can be applied in other classes. We offer ballet classes at many different levels to include anyone that wants to join in this great dance tradition.
Tap is a rhythm based dance form and is tons of fun for any age. Beginner students learn the basic tap steps and rhythms that they can carry with them to the advanced level classes to improve their technique. Basic Tap is one of our Adult Only dance classes that allows adults to learn tap in a relaxed environment. Have you always wanted to lace up some tap shoes of your own? Now is your chance! Basic Tap is a fun way to learn a dance style, meet new people, and maybe even work up a sweat. So bring a friend and join in the tapping fun!
Hip-hop is a constantly evolving dance style that can include different techniques like: popping, locking, and even break dancing. Learn different styles and techniques to show off on the dance floor and listen to the hottest music to dance to.
Entry into all our pointe classes are by “Teacher Consent” only. Our pointe classes are for ballet students that take 2 ballet classes a week and have shown the strength and technique-readiness for the next level in ballet. Students will learn proper technique of pointe footwork and can advance to our level II pointe class. Pointe Tech is an additional pointe class for students who wish to get extra practice and is strongly recommended for beginners. Pre-Pointe is for students who show potential for pointe, but need to build strength and foot articulation in order to go onto pointe. Students in pre-pointe will not wear pointe shoes until the teacher gives consent.
Lyrical dance is a technical style that focuses on interpreting and expressing the music through dance. Elements of ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance are combined with a focus on turns and jumps to make this a challenging class for the experienced dancer. Dancers learn to perform on a more mature level as they incorporate the choreography with a strong emotional connection.
Our jazz classes offer a blend of east and west coast styles. Students will be exposed to contemporary and traditional jazz movement while being encouraged to have a strong technical dance foundation that can be carried to other styles of dance.
This class is perfect for the theatrical performers! Learn to combine dance technique with acting to create show-stopping performances! Dancers will focus on musical performance by learning to execute technical dance movement while lip-synching popular musical hits.
Contemporary dance is a style that builds strength, technique, and expands a dancer’s movement vocabulary. Dancers will learn to utilize technique and movement they already know to explore different ways of moving their bodies to express a story or feeling. Partnering, floor work, and performance quality are main focuses in this class.
For those dancers wanting to add another element to their dance experience, we offer the opportunity to compete. EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO BE APART OF OUR ELITE TEAM! The entire class is designed to learn a routine, refine it, and compete against other studios. We are a nationally ranked team that has traveled outside of Illinois to compete for our national titles. Contact the office for more information.
