hip hop

Hip Hop dance is forever developing and changing. Today it is a very popular type of dance, it is very high energy and has varied techniques ranging from popping and locking to free style and break dancing. This class is offered to Children age 9+. In class we work on specific warm up techniques and develop isolating the body. New steps will be broken down and we always finish with a hip hop routine to current trending music.

lyrical

Lyrical dance is a great way to learn about self expression and how we incorporate that expression when dancing. This style uses the techniques learned in such classes as jazz and ballet but allows fluid, free movements to create something meaningful.  Lyrical is also great for limbering the body and creating suppleness, the slower paced music allows our bodies to connect to the music, whilst also showing grace and freedom. This class is offered to 9+.

contemporary

Can you think out side the box? This is exactly what contemporary is. It is similar to lyrical in a way that the music is often slower and movements often fluid. Similar to jazz in a way that we often use similar techniques with abstract arms or legs. But is unique in a way that it contains a story, a belief or a theme. Motifs are hidden and developed with in the dance, the rules are broken, lines are unfinished and toes are flexed. This class shows us how we can use contact with partners or small groups, we learn how this contact can develop into elevation or floor work. A great class for any experience level.
