Classical Ballet (7and up) Ballet is a beautiful art form which requires dedication and discipline on the part of the student. Ballet training is an excellent form of exercise for all ages, toning and strengthening the entire body, and helping to increase flexibility, coordination, and proper posture. (back to top)

Pointe (11 and up) Pointe work is an extension of classical ballet which begins at age 11 for the serious student with previous training. Two ballet classes a week are required in addition to the pointe class. (back to top)

Jazz (7 and up) Jazz is an excellent complement to ballet training. This expressive style of dance opens up many new possibilities for movement to the dance student. Originating in the jazz age of the 1920's, jazz dance blends current musical and dance trends with performance dance that is seen on television and the Broadway stage. (back to top)

Tap (6 and up) A truly American form of dance which allows the dancer's body to be used as a rhythm instrument through intricate footwork, syncopated sounds, and stylized movement. (back to top)
