Our philosophy of teaching dance combines proper technical instruction, an effort to encourage creativity, and recognition of our students’ accomplishments in dance. We utilize the Show Stars Dance curriculum to ensure our students ages 6-11 are receiving a seamless dance instruction and we provide combination classes for students who want to explore different styles of dance. We strive to recognize student accomplishments! As students progress through our tap syllabus, they will have the opportunity to celebrate their achievements at our “Ribbon Trials.” Ribbon Trials are a fun way to motivate our tappers, where they will be awarded colored ribbons to wear in their tap shoes as a symbol of their progress! We also have various awards and systems of recognition for our students studying jazz and ballet.
This class utilizes our Show Stars curriculum but gives the students 45 minutes of tap and 45 minutes of jazz for the students who are ready to go a little further in their dance training. The Show Stars™ Jazz portion of the class combines many styles and techniques from ethnic and contemporary dance, to ballet. Rhythm, upon which all dance forms depend, is particularly integral to jazz dance. The first half of class consists of exercises which stretch and tone muscles and develop support for proper stress-free alignment of the skeletal structure. Using jazz, soul, R&B, ethnic and pop music, jazz classes are a great workout and a fun way to release tension while attaining a body awareness. Our Show Stars™ Tap portion of the class is an exciting rhythmic exercise and dance form which is enjoyable to both kids and adults. Rooted in African-American History, tap offers a variety of styles and techniques. Students will realize results in dance movement after a minimum number of classes. The classes stress the basics of tap and allows dancers to build into combinations which are great to watch and delightful to hear. (1.5 hours).
