All disciplines based on the technique of Classical Dance, Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary and Modern.
Ballet & Jazz is the perfect combination class for children from 4 to 6 years old who are coming into contact with dance for the first time. Ballet & Jazz fuses the base of both styles, teaching the students the notions of dance; how to learn new steps, follow the rhythm and memorize a choreography. The class is taught in English. In this way, in addition to learning to dance, they begin to integrate a new language based on the repetition of words that they also associate with dance steps.
Jazz Dance is a mix of street and academic art, with its roots in traditional African-American vernacular dance and Modern Jazz Dance. Today, Jazz Dance is taught in various styles, including Contemporary Jazz, Lyrical Jazz, and Musical Theater Jazz. Based on modern and classical techniques, Jazz Dance classes also emphasize center control, execution of long lines, coordination and foundation. Depending on the teacher and the style of Jazz Dance, the music used in class varies between electronic, pop rock, jazz and instrumental.
Lyrical is a type of dance that arises from the mixture of various styles such as Jazz or Modern Jazz with Contemporary and also Ballet. Lyrical Dance tends to be organic and fluid in style, with splashes of drama. It’s used to tell stories, creating dancing ballads.
Broadway or Theatre Dance styles are jazz dance classes that incorporate stylized jazz dance steps (Fosse, Luigi, Robbins) and focus more on performance and musicality. The classes are dynamic, and the choreographies are more intense in terms of jumps, turns and combinations, as well as in expression.
Modern Jazz & Modern Dance technique teach the basic steps of ballet and modern dance, helping you jump, twist, suspend, stretch, contract, release, extend, fall and bounce, finding the connection between movements and building a solid foundation.
Contemporary Dance provides freedom in the means of expression and usually orients dancers to move organically. The student works on coordination, musicality, use of space, incorporating breath and finding alignment while gaining strength and elasticity.
Ballet/Classical is the most formal and technical style and is also the basis of many other Dance disciplines such as Jazz, Contemporary and Flamenco. Ballet classes focus on the joint work of alignment, positioning, rotation, feet, knees, arms, back, and head positions. The whole body participates simultaneously in each movement, and you need great control over it. Our classes are focused on Classical Ballet technique, but in more advanced levels, Neoclassical and Contemporary Ballet nuances are explored in the choreographies.
On Pointe can only be practiced when the teacher considers that the student’s feet and ankles are prepared. In this class, various exercises are performed at the barre to exercise and strengthen the feet and calves. Little by little, students progress with short center exercises and combinations.
