Summer 2020 Dance Classes
Our Summer session gives students a chance to continue taking classes and keep their skills fresh! It’s also a great time to try a dance class that you wouldn’t normally take during the school year. We offer dance in the summer Monday thru Thursday.
Combo Week (July 6th thru 9th)
Combo week begins with ballet fundamentals such as across the floor exercises and connecting steps. Ballet/jazz will connect these basics with the upbeat style of jazz movement. In hip hop students will learn basic steps to contemporary funk hip-hop music as well as popular songs. In the modern combo classes, the basics of ballet will be incorporated with the free-flowing movements of modern, in which dancers tell a story with their bodies.
