Ages 3+ It all starts here! When your child is potty trained we introduce your child to the world of imagination through movement
and rhythm. Every week is filled with fun dance movements, scarfs, hoolahoop, tapping feet. Wiggle your toes, hopping around, folk
dance, stomp those little feet. Learning stories of ballets from Cinderella, Nutcracker Sweet, Swan Lake and more! Mermaids and
princesses add to the encouragement and joy of movement.
This is an Angelina Ballerina / Tap introduction to basic ballet barre and tap work.
A fun and engaging classical ballet class that teaches barre work and coordination.
Classes range from one hour to four hours a week for the dedicated ballet dancer. Barre work, coordination, strength and development
is taught at the students progression. Students do not, necessarily, advance to the next level at the end of the year. We believe in
challenging the student but we take extra care in their development and physical maturity when it comes to advancing in classical ballet.
Pointe work is an exciting and essential part of a ballet student's training. This class is by invitation only. The student is evaluated on
their ability. Three hours of ballet a week and additional hour of pointe class.
This class is for advanced students. It involves pointe technique as well as the classic ballet variations and styles.
Musical Theatre Production

Broadway hit shows such as Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Rent are just a taste of the exciting numbers in this class!
Throughout its history jazz dance has developed parallel to popular music. As big bands and dance halls were declining, jazz dance
followed less jazz music and leaned more toward rock and roll. Syncopated rhythm, isolations, low center of gravity and a high level of
energy are important identifying characteristics of jazz dance. Other elements of jazz dance are less common and are the stylizations
of their respective choreographers. One such example are the inverted limbs and hunched-over posture of Bob Fosse.
is the performance of extraordinary feats of balance, agility, and motor coordination. It can be found in many of the performing arts as
well as in many sports. Acrobatics is most often associated with activities that make extensive use of gymnastic elements such as
acro-dance, circus, and gymnastics. Many other athletic activities, such as ballet , employ acrobatics.
Popular for every age group and level. This is a high energy class which teaches strong motions and pop. Hip Hop synchs appropriate
music and movements. This class consists of warm-ups, across the floor moves and popular dance moves.
Lyrical A fusion of the ballet and jazz dance styles. Lyrical dance aims to interpret the accompanying music in an emotionally expressive way.
The dancers' movements attempt to illustrate the actual meaning and emotion communicated in the song.
From the classic Randy Skinner (Fred Astaire style) to hoofers. This class explores the rhythms and language of sound with our feet.
Students dance from low flat shoes to heels as they advance. This gives them the flexibility to be a versatile and marketable dancer.
Focuses on creative self-expression rather than on the technical virtuosity. Modern dance is more relaxed, free style of dance in which choreographers use emotions and moods to design their own steps (in contrast to ballet's structured code of step).
