The goal of the jazz, hip hop, and musical theater classes is to develop dancers who are dynamic, versatile, and technically strong. These styles explore a variety of both lyrical and percussive qualities, with a focus on rhythm and isolations. Each class progresses through a warm-up, across the floor and extended combinations. We pride ourselves on being a family oriented dance studio and go out of our way to use clean, age-appropriate music and movement.
