Class Descriptions

Happy Feet (3-5 yrs) 45 min
An introduction to ballet and tap technique encouraging the child’s natural interest in music and movement with
an emphasis on the enjoyment of dance.

TriStar (Grade K+) 1 hr+
Our most popular class! Our TriStar program offers all students, both recreational and accelerated, an
opportunity to study three dance disciplines; ballet, tap, and jazz, all on the same day. This class introduces
body lines, placement, and dance patterns while encouraging stage presence, confidence, self-esteem and
everyday life skills. Add a back-to-back hip hop class also on the same day and take 20% off each additional
class after enrolling in a TriStar!

Hip Hop (Grade K+) 45 min
An ideal class for the recreational student. High energy, fun, upbeat classes centered around the enjoyment of
dancing and memorizing new hip hop moves and choreography weekly! A great class to build self-confidence
and stage presence!

Modern/Lyrical (Grade 4+) 45 min
Movements inspired by ballet and jazz emphasizing emotion while interpreting music and lyrics. This class
combines mind and body offering versatility, improvisation, and floorwork

For the aspiring ballerina! This class focuses on necessary strengthening techniques and proper body
alignment while emphasizing preparation for pointe shoes. This class can only be taken if the student is
