Summer Classes

HIP HOP CLASSES WITH KENTO

These classes are taught by Kento, for the students who would like to try Hip Hop for the first time or, advance their level of Hip Hop and for those who would like to audition for the Hip Hop teams. Kento did a great job with his boy’s class during the year, we are offering the boys class for the summer.

LYNN CLASS (Advanced Level)

All experienced dancers 7th grade and up are welcome to try Lynn’s class during the summer. The Contemporary/Jazz class will be for experienced dancers only. Lynn will choose the students from her August 7th summer class for her class in the fall. Lynn’s current students must take the class when the students are available. Lynn feels that the students work very hard all thru the year and if they don’t take classes for 2 ½ months it takes them 3 months to get back to their level of dance.  Lynn’s summer class will be 90-minute class.

BALLET CLASS

Many Students have realized that ballet training is very important to advance to a higher level of dance. Anastassiya will be teaching ballet at all levels during the summer.

CONTEMPORARY AND JAZZ CLASS (All Levels)

These classes are very popular with all of the students. Bailey and Anastassiya will be instructing these types of classes during the summer and in the fall. Contemporary is a style of expressive dance that uses techniques of ballet, jazz lyrical and modern. Jazz is an upbeat dance style that uses strong powerful movements, leaps, turns, and is influenced by ballet, east Asian and Indian folkloric dance.

TECHNIQUE, MODERN/HORTON AND CONDITIONING/IMPROV CLASS

Bailey will teach a technique class focusing on proper placement, strength, flexibility, skills. Bailey will be offering this class as a Modern class this summer based on Horton technique.  Horton uses flat backs and lateral stretches, tilt lines and lunges, and is a style of dance that helps strengthens skills of all other types of dance. Conditioning and improv combo class will be an hour and a half on Fridays. Conditioning helps prevent injuries while improving strength, power, endurance and flexibility.  Improv part of class will work on spontaneously created movement, encourage self-discovery, improve musicality, and include fun partner contact exercises. 

ACRO DANCE

Acro Dance as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professions, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Anastassiya has recently attended a certification in Acrobatic Arts and will be teaching acro using their syllabus. Anastassiya has personal experience with acrobatics through her experience as a competitive dancer. The class will be structured for the students to work on flexibility, limbering, balance, strength and tumbling skills such as front and back walkovers, cartwheels etc.
