Ballet for pleasure, Ballet for the more serious-minded. This classical style of expressive movement has something to offer everyone.
Modern Jazz is fun. You will learn to develop many different movements using a broad choice of varying rhythms and musical styles. Classes are structured to begin to prepare the physical strength and flexibility required to demonstrate emotion through interpretation of any musical genre, one minute you may be dancing to the rhythm of a drum, the next to a funky jazz style.
Tap is as popular today as it was in the heyday of the great Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals. 42nd Street and Crazy For You, and the more recent Stomp and Tap Dogs highlight the great diversities of style and music in tapping. Tap is a gentle, rhythmical and enjoyable way to keep fit!
