Leap 'N Learn Ballet - Ages 3-8

Developed by master teacher  Beverly Spell and child psychologist Dr. Annie Spell, Leap ‘N Learn is an early childhood dance program that teaches ballet to children. This program capitalizes on a child’s naturally occurring cognitive and neural development and encourages pretend play in a positive, nurturing environment. Through Leap ‘N Learn, your child will develop motor, cognitive, and social skills as well as love – or appreciation – for ballet. This type of dance class is appropriate for children ages three to eight.

Jazz - Ages 6-18

Jazz dancing is a type of dance style with roots in classical ballet, modern dance, and some traditional African dance. Our jazz classes focus on strength, flexibility, and movements like leaps, kicks, and turns.

Hip Hop - Ages 6-18

For our smallest dancers in the three to five age group, we introduce hip-hop in a special hippity-hop dance class. In these high-energy classes, your child will learn rhythms, body movements, and simple choreography. They will explore their creativity and enhance their strength, flexibility, and coordination.

Regular hip-hop classes start when your child turns six years old. During these classes, your child will learn the different types of movements like popping, locking, and breaking that are typical of the street dance style. We also encourage students to freestyle, which allows them to develop their technique.

Ballet - Ages 8-18

From plie to saute, ballet is an artistic type of dance with precise positions and movements. Students will learn all the positions of the arms and feet as well as other skills. Instructors will teach barre, center work, and progressions across the floor with an emphasis on proper body alignment, coordination, and rotation. For advanced dancers, we offer pointe classes.
