Tap

Proficient tap dancers can only be developed when proper attention has been devoted to correct technique and an exact sense of rhythm. Body placement, the correct way of striking the taps, patterns and balance are essential ingredients for the good dancer to excel.

Jazz

Jazz dance takes the basic principles of ballet technique and liberates it, by utilizing various styles of music. Classes consist of center warm up, stretching, across the floor progressions and varied stylistic combinations. Jazz creates a powerful and versatile dancer.


Ballet

Ballet classes are graded from Beginner-Ballet to Advanced-Ballet technique.
