 BALLET

(Cecchetti method)

Classical ballet is the most internationally recognized form of dance , and the foundation of all other types of dancing. The benefits of studying ballet are numerous - some of which are grace, poise, coordination, fluidity, strength and musicality. Only by studying ballet can the dancer gain total knowledge of his/her body, technical ability and strength. It is most important for any student who is serious about his/her dancing to take ballet lessons. Dancers wishing to dance en pointe (on pointe shoes) may only do so with the teacher's consent. Examinations are taken with C.S.C./C.D.T.A.. Classes are available for ages 4 and up.

 

TAP

Tap is a lively form of dance, unique in that students study the quality of sound as well as the quality of movement. The variety of rhythms and styles make tap dancing a versatile performance medium. Examinations are taken with C.D.T.A. Classes are available for ages 6 and up.
