Student Division

The Student Division lays the groundwork for all future dance training. Lower level classes are taught slowly and carefully in order to emphasize proper posture and placement, while upper-level student division classes work on the coordination of the full body in jumps, turns, and leaps.

Dance Performance Workshop

Fridays, September 6 – January 24, 4:15-6:15pm

Limited to 20 dancers. For dancers in Ballet 2B, 3, 4, or 5.

From the studio…to the stage! Dance Performance Workshop engages students in the process of building a dance concert through audition techniques, learning choreography, design elements, and much more. Led by faculty members Calyn Carbery and Cameron Turner, weekly classes function as rehearsals for the dancers to prepare for formal performances on Friday, January 24 and Saturday, January 25 in the beautiful Studio5. Guest teachers will be brought in to teach choreography, share professional experiences, and guide the budding artists on their way.

Please note: This is a workshop class and does not count toward the dancer’s recommended classes per week for their level to participate. Consistent class attendance is mandatory for participation.

Ballet

Ballet classes teach all of the basic positions, proper execution of the turn out of the leg, correct use of the feet, arms, and head, and the French Ballet vocabulary. Ballet helps develop strength, flexibility, musicality, and grace. Ballet provides the foundation for future dance training.

Jazz

 

Jazz is a stylized dance form based on ballet and modern technique, and therefore requires previous technical training. Dancers must be enrolled in Ballet 2A or above to participate in the Jazz program. For Teen Jazz, dancers must be enrolled in at least one ballet class per week.
