Our class listing is below
Dancing is an act of moving the body in rhythm, usually in time to music. Dancing is both an art and a form of recreation. As art, dance may tell a story, set a mood, or express an emotion. As a form of recreation, dancing has long provided fun, relaxation, and companionship. I believe dance instills flexibility in children as well as adults.
Tap teaches a sense of rhythm, timing, phrasing, coordination, & develops an alert & quick thinking mind. Classes include floor techniques, combinations & graded dances set to the music of yesterday, today & tomorrow. Children, Young Adults, & Senior Citizens are discovering untold hours of fun and pleasure in tap dancing.
Beginning Ballet comprises correct placement for the body, feet, head, and arms & the study of the five basic positions and all the elementary movements stemming from them. Intermediate classes gradually learn more complex steps including turns, leaps, jumps, & beats. The exercises are performed in more rapid tempo and dace sequences are introduced as well as some classical variations.
