This class focuses on advancing your dancers technique, stage presence, strength, and flexibility. This class is designed for the dancer looking to advance their dance education in a positive, encouraging environment. Dancers will improve their performance abilities in this high energy jazz, super fun tap and beautiful ballet class. Ensemble dancers will have a blast as they gain confidence and get a great workout in this 90-minute class. During ballet, students will learn longer intricate barre combinations set to classical and lyrical music and continue to focus on dancing with expression and emotion 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 extended across the floor combinations and routines.
