It is the foundation of all dance. A basic class that introduces the student to the elementary positions of classical ballet. Classes are slow and thorough to ensure proper alignment and understanding. This class will also focus on core strengthening, stretching and flexibility.

Students are highly encouraged to study ballet first or along with other dance forms.

Tap

Tap is the art of creating rhythms and sounds by using precise patterns of foot movement. Tappers develop outstanding coordination, musicality, and rhythm as they progress from basic to more intricate and complex patterns.

Improv Choreography

The process of spontaneously creating movement. Development of improvised movement material is facilitated through a variety of creative explorations including body mapping through levels, shape and dynamics schema. Dance improvisation is not only about creating new movement but is also defined as freeing the body from habitual movement patterns.
