Our weekly technique classes inspire and challenge our students to expand their knowledge of the steps while encompassing creative and energetic choreography. Dancers can choose from a variety of classes including the traditional favorites of ballet, tap and jazz as well as the unique styles of contemporary and hip hop. Our technique classes are recreational and will most likely have a mixed level of dancers within each class. Every dancer has their own strengths and we will be sure to bring those out every week! Should your dancer desire a more focused, skill-based class, we recommend learning more about our Dance Company or Performance Team.
