At Dance on Q, We Feature The Following Classes

Multiple levels offered - Essential class for all dancers. Students will work at the barre and across the floor with an emphasis on body alignment, turn out and developing core strength. Ballet technique is recommended as the core class to be taken in conjunction with other styles of dance. Ballet knowledge will facilitate the execution of all other dance styles since the fundamentals of dance begin with ballet technique. Dancers will develop the total body strength and form. Ballet Dancers are invited to participate in our year-end recital. Please note not all ballet classes are recital classes. NOT A RECITAL CLASS.

 

5-7 years old (Dancer must be the noted ages starting July 1st through the entire season of dance) - Students will be challenged at the barre and with across the floor combinations which will help strengthen their technique, rhythm and musicality. Students work on floor exercises that incorporate jazz, ballet and tap technique. We focus on exercises to develop and maintain proper technique, precision and strong rhythmic skills in all 3 styles. Combo dancers are invited to participate in our year-end recital in one of these styles.

3-4 years old (Dancer must be the noted ages starting July 1st through the entire season of dance) - Dancers are introduced to the basic skills of ballet and jazz. This class focuses on developing balance, coordination and body awareness through fun filled center and across the floor exercises. Dancers begin to develop musicality through rhythmic movement. Simple combinations are taught incorporating learned skills. Intro dancers are invited to participate in our year end recital.

 

Cheer/Dance- designed for the younger kids who love cheer. This class will teach cheerleading including motions, jumps, basic stunting, as well as cheer dance where they use pom poms in a more dance related cheer routine. This is a great all around class that exposes kids to all facets of cheer.

Dancers incorporate ballet and jazz technique. This style of dance is based on free flowing and/or distinctly sharp or rigid corporal movement and danced to traditional and contemporary music. Lyrical and contemporary style of dance proves to be unique in style. The corporal movement is such to interpret and tell the story that provokes different emotions. Lyrical/Contemporary dancers are invited to participate in our year-end recital.

Multiple levels offered - At all levels we focus on exercises to develop and maintain proper technique, precision and strong rhythmic skills. Dancers build their ankle and foot strength as they practice skills across the floor. Dancers work on basic sounds and continue to be challenged in order to build the ability to create accurate, clean sounds that properly match the rhythms and beats of music.

Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context.

 

Dancers work on flexibility and core strength to be able to execute jazz skills properly.  In class dancers work on placement and body alignment,  Body isolations, leaps and turns are taught at each level.   Classes are progressive and aim to tap into each student’s potential as their dance skills are  strengthened and new challenges are introduced appropriate for each level.   Ballet technique is recommended to maximize the dancers jazz skills.  Dancers work on combinations that help with choreography retention and retrieval.  Execution of choreography is taught to be delivered technically sound with strength and power.  Jazz is best described as a dance style that highlights jumps and turns using proper technique in a stylized form.    Jazz dancers are invited to participate in our year-end recital.

This is a high energy class with “Street” dance flavor. Popular in music videos. Hip Hop dancers are known for their baggie clothing, fierce attitude and low approach to dancing. Body isolations are typical in hip hop, side to side sharp and rapid movement, quick shifts of weight and precise arm motions makes for intense, energetic, hard hitting, yet smooth style of dancing.
