Ballet for fun or for the more serious-minded, this classical style has something to offer everyone. Dating back to the 17th century and the conventional steps, grace and fluidity of movement are still found in Ballet today and has a technique which is the foundation of all dance.
Tap is rhythm – rhythm is tap. Its origins are many and varied. Americans claim its origin dates from the African Jazz age. The Irish stake their claim to the Jigs and Step Dancing. The English relate back to northern Clog Dancers but whichever one chooses to believe, Tap is as popular today as it was in the heyday of the great Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals. Evergreen shows, 42nd Street and Crazy For You, and the more recently Stomp and Tap Dogs, highlight the great diversities of style and music in tapping.
CONTEMPORARY MODERN JAZZ
Contemporary Modern Jazz is a fun class where you will learn to develop many different movements reaching to 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. You may explore contrast between expansion and relaxation or learn to isolate in a slick stylish mood. Whatever the atmosphere of the class, it will be a wonderful opportunity to react and interact with other members and really dance to express your feelings.
