Tap is a form of dance that actually allows someone to make music and rhythm through the sound of one's tap shoes hitting the floor. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dance. It is widely performed as a part of musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality. Our students will be able to understand music and rhythm within this class.
Hip Hop has become all the rave. It is a street dance that primarily uses hip hop music styles. Starting with our young ones, we have a Bit-Bop class that lets kids, ages 3-6, dance around freely,using some jazz techniques. The kids learn how to apply technique to free style in fun age appropiate music. As they move forward to Hip Hop, students will be able to add their own musicality with dance moves and start to add a bit more funk in their step.
Acro has become a wide spread among the dance world as dancers and choreographers push the boundaries to add more flare into their routines. Acro derives from gymnastics/tumbling.
