Twinkle Star Ballet/Tap/Jazz (ages 3-4)
Twinkle Star Dance is an age specific 50 minute class containing ballet, tap and jazz/creative movement. The purpose of the class is to introduce young dancers to the three styles of dance and inspire movement and creativity within a positive environment. Dancers also learn basic steps and terminology in all three styles. For example, all dancers will learn what a “plie” is and how to demonstrate one. The use of fun, age appropriate music engages the young dancers’ minds and bodies. The use of props such as maracas for the “freeze dance” makes the end of class the most fun!

Lyrical is a dance style that is fusion of ballet and jazz techniques. The class uses music that helps the dancer convey emotions. The class will help dancers create body awareness and will also develop muscular strength and flexibility. This a fun class and is open to beginning dancers that have no experience.
Jazz combines many styles and techniques from ethnic and contemporary dance, to ballet. Rhythm, upon which all dance forms depend, is particularly integral to jazz dance. The first half of class consists of exercises which stretch and tone muscles and develop support for proper stress-free alignment of the skeletal structure.
The term “Hip Hop” greatly limits the scope of a typical Hip Hop class.
From R&B and House to Club and Pop, Hip Hop classes utilize upbeat music from various genres, in addition to the latest Hip Hop hits. The resulting outcome is an energetic class that not only teaches you Hip Hop movements and technique, but also instills rhythm and precision in your muscle memory.
