Ballet 

Ballet classes are offered to students from intermediate to advanced levels. Serious ballet study (forty-five minutes or more of ballet only) is not appropriate until around age 8, when a student is capable of the necessary focus and concentration. Danceworks offers ballet technique classes and pointe classes for qualified students.

Modern 

Modern dance is a reactionary style that was created in response to the formal structure of ballet technique. Students of modern dance will learn to use their bodies in new ways and experiment with rising and falling, initiating movement from different parts of the body, and exploring the ways in which the body moves everyday. Students will learn the specific techniques of several different modern masters. This experimental dance form can be enjoyed by students ages 8 and up, provided they are taking ballet technique classes concurrently.

Tap 

The study of rhythm patterns and articulation of the feet is stressed in tap-only classes. Students will learn a vast vocabulary of tap steps and become proficient in putting these movements together to form combinations and routines.

Hip Hop 

Hip hop fever has taken over the dance scene in the past several years. This trendy jazz style incorporates many elements of street dancing and can be seen just about everywhere from tv to movies and music videos. Danceworks students ages 8 and up can enjoy hip hop class, provided they are taking classical jazz or ballet technique class concurrently.

Jazz-Hop

Dancers in first through fourth grade can take jazz-hop class, which provides an introduction to both jazz and hip hop.

Jazz 

Jazz dance is a popular addition to the well rounded dancer’s education. Classical jazz dance has been called the embodiment of the American spirit. It incorporates influences from many different vernacular styles of the past and present. Jazz dance is a constantly changing art form that takes its cues from popular culture. Students at Danceworks can attend classes in many styles of jazz including classical jazz, hip hop, and lyrical.

Lyrical /Contemporary

Lyrical dance has been described as a mix of ballet and jazz techniques. The goal of a lyrical dancer is to convey emotion using movement.  Contemporary dance is an overarching dance form that incorporates elements from a wide variety of dance genres including modern, lyrical, ballet and jazz. Students at Danceworks ages 8 and up can participate in lyrical, modern and contemporary  classes provided they are taking ballet technique class concurrently.
