Jazz (1 hour)

Jazz dance develops strong, proper body alignment and strength needed to improve turning technique and to jump more efficiently while learning flashy combinations. This class will increase a student's vocabulary by introducing a variety of across the floor progressions of turns, kicks, jumps and more in each class. Advanced level Jazz Classes in our studio has more of a commercial and contemporary jazz style combining technique with a stronger emphasis on performance level.

Modern (45 minutes)

Modern is offered to ages 8 and up. In our studio it can be abstract or lyrical. Exploring Horton/Limon along with Graham and Humphrey techniques, modern is a dramatic and more poetic way of moving which evolved as dancers found the need to break away from the rigidity of Classical Ballet and express themselves using a freer style. Modern Dance is characterized by its bending of the spine into spirals and contractions as well as the use of off-center movement such as tilts, layouts, and fall and recover technique. It lends itself to various types of music including alternative and New Age, and is traditionally danced barefoot.

Hip Hop (45 minutes)

Hip Hop is offered to ages 8 and up seen primarily on TV during rap and R & B music videos and usually catches the eye of the more "recreational" dancer. It is a form that evolved out of street and brake dancing moves, and is characterized by its vigorous athletics and bouncy style. Hip Hop is danced primarily to Rap and R & B music, and is a great workout that enhances creativity while dancing cutting edge choreography.
