Workshop 1, Ballet & Jazz
Pricing for 6 weeks: $162
The workshop classes are 1.5 hour classes, splitting the time between Ballet and Jazz. In Workshop 1, students will have a more extensive learning experience than the previous levels. They will focus on vocabulary, proper technique, barre work, across the floor, and center combinations. The exercises given will help develop the muscles needed to be on Pointe shoes. Workshop 2 continues to build on technique learned in Workshop 1.

Modern Dance began as a way for ballet dancers to rebel against the rigid constraints of classical ballet. Contemporary dance is an extension from this, being a fusion of several styles – jazz, ballet and modern – and has moved away from the techniques of classical modern dance. At our studio we explore both styles, touching on techniques of modern as taught by choreographers such as Horton and Graham while also working in the more current methods of expression through contemporary movements.
Lyrical is characterized by conveying musicality with emotion in movement. It is a similar form to ballet, with its base being in classical ballet technique mixed with aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern. While movement in Lyrical Dance is generally moved by the lyrics of a song, lyrical is actually defined by the characterization of, or expression of spontaneous, direct feeling.
Black spaghetti strap leotard, tights, half soled shoes or barefoot. Shirts, shorts or leggings may be worn over the leotard and tights.

Hip Hop is primarily danced to R&B music and has evolved from breaking, locking, and popping to cutting edge choreography. Often freestyle in nature, hip hop provides the recreational dancer with an athletic, fun, and creative workout.
Comfortable clothes, and black sneakers with a white sole (no street sneakers allowed). While a leotard is not required, tops should extend full length past the hips. This is to help extend the dancer’s line, make the class more uniform and aid the teacher when making corrections.
*There is a $25 registration fee for Summer Dance for non-members only.*
