Description of Dance Classes and Dance Attire

Ballet

Ballet is the foundation of all dance. We teach the basic concepts, while students learn ballet terminology, correct placement and turnout. Ballet is graceful and a wonderfully fun way to work out.

Flamenco

Flamenco dance is fiery, exciting, loud and passionate. It is also incredibly atmospheric; even in a dance setting. It is an ancient art form, borne of traditional music and song from Spain. The great news is you don't need to be fit or flexible to greatly enjoy Flamenco dance at a beginner's level.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is an updated fusion of 'Street Funk' and 'Street Dance' performed to popular music. It is an energetic form of dance that allows the dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities. Hip Hop is very popular with both boys and girls and is one of the biggest dance forms in the studio.

Irish Step

Irish Step dancing can be performed by solo dancers or larger groups called ceili. Jumps, hops and side steps are also part of Irish Step dances. Irish Step is featured in the theatrical show 'Riverdance'.
Comfortable, appropriate dancewear (shorts, T-shirt, sweatpants, yoga pants), black ballet shoes or ghillies* 

NEW! Jazz

Jazz class is a fun, fast-paced mixture of various techniques. Throughout history Jazz Dance has developed in parallel to the popular music of the day, with the dance being a physical embodiment of the music. Classes include basic body isolations and coordination routines.
Black jazz or yoga pants or shorts, t-shirt, tan pull-on jazz boots*

Lyrical

Lyrical dance aims to interpret the accompanying music in an emotionally expressive way. Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet with jazz and contemporary dance techniques. It is a very elegant dance form, characterized by fluidity and grace. Lyrical is growing to be one of our most popular classes at The Academy of Dance.

Mummy & Me / Pre-Dance I (yes, dads are welcome too!)

Parent's and toddler's joint participation in this class helps foster the bond and provides the best introduction to dance imaginable. Basic dance skills such as skipping and plies are introduced, and the focus of the class is to develop physical coordination, a love of dance and music in a friendly, fun and social environment. As the students grow more comfortable in the studio environment they will be encouraged to try some exercises on their own in preparation for pre-dance. Older students may attend without their parents.

Pre-Dance II

Pre-dance II is an introduction to basic ballet and tap dance. This class is the perfect way for students to acquire a well-rounded foundation in dance, and a chance to explore all dance forms. The foundations of ballet (position of feet and arms, barre work and choreography) are taught in a fun and creative way. Students work independently from their parents.

NEW! Princess Ballet

This is a 45 minute ballet class for the little Princess in your life. It is a very fun class, and we encourage all the girls to wear tutus and tiaras every week. We teach the basic concepts of ballet terminology, placement and turnout, all set to your little Princess's favorite movie music and themes.

Tap

Tap dance is one of the greatest 'feel good' dances you'll ever encounter. It makes everyone smile and is quite mesmerizing when done well. Our classes are often taught to 'show tunes', and in no time you'll be mastering the basics.
