Senior Program

Boys & Girls Ages 12-18

Acro is based on safe and effective progressions in five areas; flexibility, strengthening, balancing, limbering and tumbling, similar to floor gymnastics. 

Level 1 - Dancers working on skills such as cartwheels, handstands, bridges and backbends.

Level 2 - Dancers who can execute skills such as both side cartwheels, backbends down & up and more.

Ballet is a Classical dance form demanding strength, grace and precision.  Ballet is used as the foundation in all dance forms.  

Hip Hop is best described as high energy and original.  Strengthening and conditioning will help build a solid foundation for Breaking, Locking, Housing and more.  

Jazz dance combines the technique of Ballet and Modern dance with the current forms of popular dance.  Jazz has its own vocabulary ranging from isolations to the movement of the entire body.  The Jazz curriculum includes stretching, jumps, rhythm and various styles of movement.  

Lyrical is a fusion of Jazz and Ballet styles with a concentration of Ballet technique.  Lyrical focuses on fluid movements and expressive emotion.  We highly recommend all Lyrical students take a weekly Ballet class.

Musical Theater is a combination of dancing and acting, similar to what would be seen in musicals and Broadway shows.  Dancers learn to incorporate a personality or story line into their dancing.

PrePointe is required before beginning Pointe work.  A Ballet student must study a dedicated Pre-Pointe program to ensure the student is strong enough to dance on Pointe without injury.  All Pre-Pointe students must be at least 12 years of age and have at least 3 years of Ballet training before enrolling in Pre-Pointe.  Dancers will take a Pre-Pointe class and a traditional Ballet class, back-to-back.  This Pre-Pointe class will help students to strengthen technique and prepare to potentially progress to Pointe work.

Tap is a percussive style of dance.  Its name comes from the tapping sound made when metal plates on the dancer’s shoes touch the floor.  Students will learn to understand rhythm and timing while working on footwork and agility.
