Ballet is the foundation of all other types of dance.  Students are introduced to
vocabulary and the associated movements as well as learn the proper positions
of arms and feet. 
 Exercises are performed at the barre, center and across the floor.

Jazz dance fuses together technique and style with a focus on stage presence.
Students learn the proper techniques for leaps and turns, and classes include a
flexibility stretch, progressions across the floor and an introduction to both technical
and stylized combinations.

Lyrical dance is an expressive form of dance that combines ballet and jazz
techniques while telling a story to the audience. Lyrical is technical and emphasizes
the importance of fluidity in dance.
