Technique Classes: (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels) Fine tune your skills and reach your goals in this non-recital-performance class. Through the use of Ballet and Jazz based techniques, dancers will focus on (but are not limited to) placement, turns, jumps, strength, flexibility, and movement quality. These classes are a wonderful addition to any dancer’s training regimen. Attire: All dancers- comfortable dance clothing. Jazz or ballet shoes or Teacher preference. Refrain from baggy attire.
Improvisation and Tricks Class: (Intermediate and Advanced Levels) Improvisation is the process of spontaneously creating movement through guided exercises. Dancers will explore their creativity, environment and discover alternative approaches to the organic creation of movement. They will be encouraged to free themselves from habitual patterns in both thought and motion. Dancers will gain trust and confidence in themselves and each other with the introduction of creative partnering work, tricks and manipulation of body-weight. Attire: All dancers – comfortable clothing. No jeans
Conditioning Class: Conditioning Class will cross-train the dancer. There will be a focus on core strength, endurance, and injury prevention. Students can set personal goals each term and the instructor will personalize a program to help the dancer exceed their expectations.
Stretch and Strengthen: This class is designed to tone and lengthen dancers’ muscles in a fun, warm and welcoming environment. The class will include conditioning exercises to isolate individual muscle groups while improving upon attention to reflex and coordination. Teachers will incorporate static and dynamic stretches throughout the class and concludes with a full body cool down. Stretch and Strengthen is a guide to promote injury prevention and is an excellent supplement to each of our dance classes.
