Students will learn upbeat and stylized dance moves. Jazz dance is fast-paced and requires high energy. Students will stretch and work on dance technique, as well as learn choreographed routines that move across the floor. Like tap, modern jazz dance is considered to have it's origins in America (with special credit given to Chicagoan Gus Giordano!).
Students will stretch and learn graceful dance steps. Proper technique and body placement are highly emphasized. Students who are serious about improving as dancers will find that Ballet classes are an important part of their training. Pointe is an advanced ballet variation requiring special ballet shoes. Students need black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. Hair must be in a bun.
This class combines many different styles of dance to produce a new modern version of Ballet and Jazz. Flexibility, muscular strength, and endurance will be enhanced through dance exercises and routines. Students need leotard and footless tights, lyrical sandals, or bare feet.
Using themes from Broadway musicals and Hollywood movies, students will learn different styles of dance. This class is designed to help the student who wants to act and perform in plays, musicals, and other related productions.
