DANCE STYLES

BALLET

Ballet combines grace, line, and beauty to provide the technical foundation for all dance forms. This classical dance form uses grace, strength and balance to create flowing movement. The technique a dancer learns from ballet carries over to all other styles of dance.

JAZZ

This often up beat dance style has evolved using elements of ballet and modern influenced by rhythms & techniques of jazz music. Many styles of this dance form exist, i.e. Lyrical, Jazz, and Contemporary Jazz.
