Hip Hop includes the styles of dance you see on shows like America’s Best Dance Crew and So You Think You Can Dance. In the genre of Hip Hop Dance you will find the popular street dances such as: breaking, popping, locking, housing, jerking, shuffling, and hip hop choreo- which is generally a combination of these styles sequenced into a dance routine. Our Hip hop classes expose you to as many of the popular styles as possible.
This is a fun and exciting dance form. Because jazz technique requires a sound knowledge of ballet terminology and technique, we recommend that jazz classes be taken in conjunction with a ballet class. Students will learn jazz isolations; turn techniques, floor work, and combinations.

Broadway Bound is our musical theatre program that focuses on teaching the children music, choreography, and performance technique from Broadway shows. The class will include warm up exercises that will encourage many different feelings and attitudes through show tunes. This will help them see the importance of being able to sing, act, and dance while performing a musical number.
Tap is the most rhythmic of the dance forms. Tap is an excellent way to increase coordination of the mind and body and to develop a sense of rhythm, timing, and expression. It explores the use of smaller muscles of the feet and body, along with the larger ones.
For dancers who have achieved at least intermediate level proficiency in ballet, jazz, modern, tap, or lyrical dance who wish to hone some more advanced skills. Come polish your barrel turns, pirouettes, grand jetes, leaps, or whatever fun trick Kevin or Sam have up their sleeve for you to play with.
