Come join this up beat, sassy and fun class. Dress Code:Tight fitting top, Shorts or Leggings, Jazz shoes or Foot Undiez, Pony Tail.

Hip Hop

The term “Hip Hop” greatly limits the scope of a typical Hip Hop class.  From R&B and House to Club and Pop,  Hip Hop classes utilize upbeat music from various genres, in addition to the latest Hip Hop hits.  The resulting outcome is an energetic class, that not only teaches hip hop movements and techniques, but also instills rhythm and precision in muscle memory.

Ages 9 and Older

Tap 

A style of American theatrical dance using precise rhythmical patterns of foot movement and audible foot tapping. It is derived from the traditional clog dance of northern England, the jigs and reels of Ireland and Scotland, and possibly the rhythmic foot stamping of African dances. Tap is a form of dance where rhythmic and syncopated sounds are created by the feet. Tap dance teaches a sense of rhythm, timing and precision as well as aerobic activity.
Dress Code: Form fitted top and bottoms, Black Jazz Taps, Hair in Pony Tail.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance encourages dancers to use their emotions and moods to design their own steps and routines. It is not unusual for contemporary dancers to invent new steps for their routines, instead of following a structured code of technique, as in ballet. Contemporary dance pulls technique from modern, ballet, lyrical, and jazz.  Contemporary dancers deliberately use gravity. It isn’t unusual to see lots of floor work!

Dress Code: Tight fitting top and bottoms, bare feet or foot undiez
