If classes are canceled, we will attempt to air on area radio stations and on the studio’s answering machine. Safety is our #1 priority… Please assess your individual situation and do what is best for you and your dancer! We will understand.

ATTENDANCE

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Creative Movement
The creative movement class for 2-5 year-olds designed to enhance gross motor development, listening skills, musicality, and nurture the creative spirit; classes encourage imagination, self-expression and group interaction while introducing basic ballet and tap movement and music concepts.

Tap
Tap dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms and beats not only in music but in their own bodies. Students will master fundamental skills at each level.  Tap is a high energy form of movement offering fun and fitness for all ages. Tap shoes with a thick metal on the bottom are used to make unique sounds. Tap dancing is an exciting form of dance in which dancers wear special shoes equipped with metal taps. Tap requires a great deal of coordination and can be a challenging style of dance. Students learn tap terminology and apply rhythm and timing into a tap routine. All levels will emphasize clarity of rhythm and sound and the development of style through the use of the whole body. Tap dancers use their feet like drums to create rhythmic patterns and timely beats.

Hip- Hop
