Jazz Technique

(Grades 5 -12) Jazz borrows from Modern and Ballet technique and develops stylistically. Therefore, it is wise, and strongly recommended, to study Ballet and/or Modern concurrently with Jazz. Jazz adapts itself easily to a variety of styles, including Broadway, music videos, TV, and concert performances. Classes consist of a warm-up, floor stretch, center barre, progressions and center combinations. (45 minute class)

Ballet Technique

Ballet is a formalized style of movement that started in Europe. It has specific terminology and sets of exercises that are incorporated from the barre to center. Body placement, posture, balance, flexibility, and coordination are stressed. Ballet is an essential part of all disciple. (60 minute class)

 

Modern

Modern evolved from the "breaking of the rules" of strict Ballet. Exploration of the basic elements of dance- time, space, energy, relationships and the coordination of our bodies- builds on the student's natural creativity to develop an understanding of the essence of all dance forms. It complements Ballet and Jazz training and is highly recommended for intermediate and advanced dancers. (45 minutes class)

 

Tap

TAP . Its origins are in America, based on the Irish Jig, Clogging, and African rhythms and the rhythmic footwork is done with special shoes designed for Tap.

Ballet Sculpt

While barre has origins in dance, the rhythmically challenged shouldn’t worry: No tap shoes, leotards, or any fancy footwork are required. “You don’t need any dance experience—you’re not going

to be doing any leaps or pirouettes.”

    

So, grab your friends and come try out our new Ballet Sculpt Class! This barre-based class uses a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements.  Also, don't be surprised if your class incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.

What to wear:  Comfortable workout clothes and non-skid socks

Average calories burned per class: 300-400 for an hour-long class.

Type of workout: Low-impact.
