Classical Ballet - The foundation of all dance in its purest form. Through this art much poise and grace is gained as well as self-confidence in an ever changing world.


Jazz - A stylized form of dance that incorporates interpretive characteristics and strengthens the cardiovascular system.


Tap - A form of dance that coordinates rhythm and timing to music projecting audible sounds.


Lyrical - Tells a story or conveys a message through expression and dance. Movement is fluid, smooth and controlled.  Available to intermediate and advanced students who are enrolled in Ballet class.


Contemporary - A form of dance that combines elements of dance genres including modern, lyrical, jazz and contemporary ballet, stressing versatility and improvisation. Offered to intermediate/advanced teens enrolled in a ballet class. 


Acrobatics - For students ages 6 and up (non-performing class available to children ages 3-5). Acro employs the same inverted type of skills visible in gymnastics. Acrobatic performers focus strongly on the use of balance, flexibility and strength.
