Ballet technique is the foundation of all dance. The technique of ballet is elaborate and requires many years of training to master. The stronger a dancer becomes in ballet, the stronger he/she will become in ALL genres of dance.
Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of the tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion to keep rhythm & timing patterns and teaches dancers how to count music.
Contemporary is an expressive form of dance that combines elements of multiple genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and ballet that strives to connect the mind and body through fluid & abstract movement.
Lyrical is a ballet based genre that merges ballet, jazz & modern in a fluid and graceful way. Lyrical dance is expressive, emotional and tells the story of the music.
