Acrobatic training teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, and above all, discipline and concentration. Basic tumbling skills such as cartwheels, walkovers, handsprings as well as more challenging tucks and aerials will be incorporated with strength training and conditioning.



Ballet training is essential to all other dance styles, and develops strength, grace, poise, posture and musicality. Classical yet vibrant, traditional yet evolving, the technical training of ballet is the basis and foundation of all dance.

Contemporary draws on modern dance techniques as well as newer philosophies of movement that depart from classical dance techniques by altogether omitting structured form and movement. It is recommended that ballet be taken concurrently.

Hip Hop is a street-born form of dance that incorporates urban style and is set to uptempo, rhythmic music and beats.

Jazz combines solid dance technique with fun and challenging combinations. It ranges in style from the excitement of funk to the bravura of Broadway. Jazz technique develops strength, coordination, flexibility, and the controlled movement of each part of the body.

A beautiful blend of ballet technique, jazz rhythms, and modern style create dances that reflect the emotions and lyrics of the music. Lyrical dance encourages natural, spontaneous movement and personal interpretation.

Our Musical Theater class focuses on elements of dancing, singing and acting; all of which are necessary components of musical theatre. The class will touch upon history and various styles of this art form and students will have the opportunity to perform numbers from well-known musicals.

Tap dancing is a fantastic way to improve rhythm and coordination. Using metal taps that are fastened to the balls and heels of shoes, tap adds the element of sound so we teach our students how to count sounds. Students learn to make clear, correct sounds.
