This class is designed for the dancer looking to further develop their dance education in a positive and encouraging environment.  Ensemble dancers will have a blast as they gain confidence and get a great workout in this 60-minute class. Dancers will improve their technique and performance abilities in this extraordinarily high energy hip hop/ jazz, super fun tap, and beautiful ballet class.  During ballet, students will learn barre combinations set to classical and lyrical music and focus on body placement and terminology while working center floor.  Dancers will learn all styles of jazz including street funk, Broadway and of course – hip hop! High energy jazz will include a stronger focus on technique during center and across the floor combinations and routines. Beginner tap work will continue with fun upbeat barre combinations and the introduction to blending taps together to create tap sequences. This class participates in two routines in the Recital, including the featured Ensemble Opening Production Routine.
