Tap allows a dancer to use the body as a rhythm instrument. Rhythm tap is a smooth, intricate style that begins at the feet and moves through the body. The name comes from the tapping sound made when the small metal plate or “taps”, on the dancer’s shoes touch a hard floor. This lively, rhythmic tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician.
Jazz is enjoyed by all, in its contemporary form with the emphasis on technique, rhythm and style. Jazz classes incorporate isolations, bending and stretching with dance combinations of turns, kicks, leaps, and jumps. A very active dance form, jazz dance involves a full range of body movement.
Ballet is the foundation of all dances; depending on the level of the dancer, Ballet involves barre work, center floor exercises and moving combinations. Students will focus on technique, flexibility, strength and body placement while emphasizing musicality. Disciplined and precise, ballet focuses on the dancers’ turnout and center body placement. It develops strength, stamina, coordination and grace. Combining proper alignment and body placement seamless transitions through standard arm, leg and feet positions, and astute sense of timing, it trains the dancers to be clean, versatile performers.
Lyrical dance is the fusion of ballet and jazz technique. Expression from the inner emotion is a primary factor in choreographing, dance, and interpreting this art form. A key element in a lyrical piece is seeing the movement done in a flowing or continuous pattern, instead of set counts. Lyrical dance interprets music or works, showing the emotion of the particular piece. The lines are rational in nature with a ballet technique base that determines the correct placement of the body angles.
