Ballet is a dancer’s best friend when it comes to gaining and maintaining technique. Our classes are given at an advanced level but welcome all ranges to attend. Be aware that classical ballet is based on a very traditional technique and vocabulary. There are different styles of classical ballet that are related to their areas of creation; French, Italian, or Russian methods. Our teachers come from various backgrounds and will teach a fusion of classical ballet techniques.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is a blend for the technically trained dancer; some describe it as a release from both modern and jazz. Contemporary dance is unique to the choreographer you decide to take from. Within each class you are guaranteed an emotional release as much as a technical push of your abilities as a dancer.

Ballroom

Ballroom dancing usually involves partnership dance where couples, using step-patterns, move rhythmically, expressing the characteristics of music. Ballroom dancing consists of two styles: the Smooth, or Standard, and the Rhythm, or Latin. The Smooth, Standard style focuses on the elegance, grace and fluidity of movement. Dancers rotate in a counter-clockwise direction, moving around the entire floor. The couple is constantly moving on the dance floor, transitioning from one place to the next in a fixed pattern. The Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz and Quickstep are danced in this manner. The Rhythm, Latin style focuses on a display of vibrant energy and a personal flair. The couple’s dancing pattern is syncopated to the rhythm of the music. The couple usually dances in one spot of the dance floor. Included in this style are the East Coast Swing, Jive, Rumba, Bolero, Cha Cha, Mambo, Samba and Paso Doble.
