BALLET/TAP
This is a wonderful introduction to dance for our tiny dancers! We offer a creative dance class covering ballet basics, acrobat, and tap. Portions of class are structured in traditional ballet training and other portions teach and inspire children to explore their own creative dance movement.

BALLET/JAZZ/ACRO
This combination class explores ballet and the use of body alignment for lengthening and strengthening muscles, while building discipline and self-esteem grooming the body through the mind! Jazz explores numerous styles from the 1920s to the present; kids and adults alike will enjoy this precise and free flowing style of expression. Students learn Acro and tumbling skills pertinent for the dancer to incorporate in their dance training.

JAZZ
Tap your cares away! This is a great way for guys and gals to release stress and put their rhythmical skills to work. It’s like drumming with your feet! This class is for Ages 10-12 who have ample tap experience. Students will learn both rhythm and precision tap methodology.

MODERN
This free spirited form of dance that breaks all the rules! Learn techniques that will broader your view of what dance can be and learn improvisational and choreographic skills. Danced bare-foot, modern is perhaps the most organic form of dance for the body allowing exploration by moving ergonomically. Enrollment in a Ballet class is mandatory in order to enroll in this class.

ACRO
Not the typical tumbling or gymnastics class, students learn acro skills pertinent for the dancer to incorporate in their training. Students develop increased flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline and concentration. Focused on fundamental acrobatic technique, Acro teaches skills such as handstands, chin stands, elbow stands, cartwheels, back bends, walkovers, balance and contortion tricks, all at each student’s level of experience. Enrollment in a Ballet class is mandatory in order to enroll in this class.

CONTEMPORARY
Encouraging the dancer to connect mind and body through fluid movements, this expressive style of dance combines elements of , jazz, lyrical and classical ballet encouraging versatility and improvisation with emphasis on floorwork. Enrollment in a Ballet class is mandatory in order to enroll in this class.

PRE-POINTE/POINTE
This class teaches the necessary skills to develop the strength and ability to dance safely en Pointe. Taking this class does not insure you will get to dance en Pointe. Eventually students who acquire the skills necessary will be able to wear pointe shoes for class. Whether the student is taking class in slippers or en Pointe, students are required to attend the full ballet class prior to the start of Pointe class. Only open to second year level 5 dancers. Students MUST take 2 ballet classes per week to participate in Pointe and have been approved by Miss Erica and Staff to begin to learn how to dance en Pointe.

LYRICAL
What do you get when you mix ballet, modern and jazz? A super fun lyrical class with a lot of floor work, emotional self-expression and improvisation. This is what we like to call our “mental health” class to relieve stress while learning new skills and techniques. Enrollment in a Ballet class is mandatory in order to enroll in this class.

HARMONY SIGNATURE MIXER
Stretch your dance and competition skills. Experience a mix of ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical- dance tricks, advanced turns, acro, stretching, yoga and partner yoga. Dancers will also learn the fundamentals of physical therapy, anatomy, nutrition and hypnosis throughout the sessions. Enrollment in a Ballet class and at least one Jazz/Lyrical/Contemporary is mandatory in order to enroll in this class.
