Jazz is typically an upbeat style of dance that mix classic jazz movements as well as modern dance trends. At Dansations, we work with dancers to improve flexibility, jumps, turns and combinations to strengthen the technical skills of our dancers. Since many elements of jazz are founded in ballet, many students take both classes simultaneously since it improves musical timing, precision and technique.

Tap is all about rhythm and style. Throughout the course of a year, dancers will explore the world of tap, from classical to modern “street” styles. Each week, dancers will be challenged with intricate footwork while learning to make new sounds and combinations with their feet. The rhythmic timing learned in tap benefits dancers across the dance spectrum, especially in jazz and hip hop classes.

Ballet is often considered to be the foundation of all dance, and for good reason! It is a classical art form that emphasizes technique, discipline, grace and beauty. At Dansations, we teach the Vaganova style of ballet with a slight Balanchine influence. Even just one ballet class a week will greatly improve a dancer’s technique in jazz, tap, and acrobatics.

Lyrical is perfect for the dancer who is looking for a class that offers the grace and demure of ballet with vibrancy and modern flair of jazz. A popular class at Dansations, dancers who take lyrical will learn to interpret word and music to express emotion and feeling. Students must be enrolled in ballet and jazz before participating in this class.

Acrobatics is one of our strongest dance styles at Dansations. We work on flexibility, core strength, balance, and tumbling skills as our dancers soar across the floor. Acrobatics will help dancers in jazz and tap classes, building strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility.

Like tap, Hip-Hop focuses on style and rhythm. Dancers will have fun in class as we learn combinations to popular songs on the radio, adding our unique flair and star-power to each move. Hip-Hop is a great motivator to get kids moving while encouraging them to be more outgoing on the dance floor, in school or at home. Open to dancers of all ages and levels!

In Tumbling, we pull out the mats and work on our big tumbling skills for throughout the entire class. This is a great opportunity for dancers, cheerleaders and gymnast to have fun, learn new tricks and really fly! Tumbling works great in combination with our acro classes.

Tumbling classes do not perform in the year-end recital.
