CHILDREN & TEENS work on a season of 34 weeks, from September to June. All students have the opportunity to be in our Showcase at the end of the season. You may start at any time during the year, and all fees are pro-rated from when you start. Classes are filled on a first come first served basis. A deposit of $100.00 per person is required (subtracted from the total fee). Missed classes may be made up at any time in any type of dance you choose. Registration may be done in person or through the mail. (Debit/Credit cards must be done in person.) E-Transfers are also available by sending to firstname.lastname@example.org (no password required).
ADULTS work on a card system. Each time you come in, we punch your card. You are therefore paying for the classes you take. Adults also have the option of being in our Showcase (last year over 70 participated) A card is good for any class on the adult schedule and you may start at any time during the year. Cards do not expire. Try a free class! Registration may be done before or after your class. (Debit/Credit cards must be done in person.) E-Transfers are also available by sending to email@example.com (no password required).
OUR DANCE STYLES
Video Jazz (Funky): A fast paced jazz style based on the dance form seen in shows and videos. Great stretch and heart activity.
Technical Jazz (Lyrical or Contemporary): A slow paced jazz style based on ballet and lyrical dance. More emphasis on control, technique and placement.
Modern (Martha Grahamish): A jazz style based on the art form of dance. Different methods with more abstract lines and placement. More in line with artistic interpretation.
Hip Hop: Very similar to our video jazz, without the emphases on flexibility, technique and turns.
Tap: Great exercise for your body and legs. Co-ordination and timing are greatly developed through this type of dance. Good heart exercise as well.
Ballet: A slow moving class that is geared for strength, placement and technique. Results take time to show, but this is recommended for all serious dancers.
Musical Theatre: Based on musical performance, this class combines Dancing, Acting and Singing. This class encourages the student to develop confidence and an exciting stage presence. A good voice is not a requirement.
Ballroom Couples (Adults): This class covers all the basic forms of couples dancing, in both Smooth and Latin styles. Waltz, Jive/Swing/Lindy Hop, Tango, Merengue. Rhumba, Foxtrot, Salsa, Cha Cha and Samba. Our emphasis is on fun and enjoyment, getting you on the dance floor with enough steps to make you look good, as quickly as possible.
Yoga/Stretch: A stretch class with yoga control and pacing. Relaxing into control, placement and strength.
Dance & Movement: A class for 3 and 4 year old kids. A combination of dance styles and exercises to teach the art of dance to the young mind.
Acting: A class for overcoming fear in performing. Not based on dance like all the other classes we teach, but performance and learning to be comfortable on stage.
