This class is designed for the dancer looking to further develop their dance education in a positive and encouraging environment. Dancers will improve their technique and performance abilities in this extraordinarily high energy hip hop jazz, super fun tap, and beautiful ballet class. Ensemble dancers will have a blast as they gain confidence and get a great workout in this non- competitive 60 minute class.

During ballet, students will learn barre combinations set to classical and lyrical music and focus on body placement and terminology while working center floor. Dancers will learn all styles of jazz including street funk, Broad- way and of course – hip hop! High energy jazz will include a stronger focus on technique during center and across the floor combinations and routines. 

Tap work will continue with fun upbeat barre combinations and the introduction to blending taps together to create tap sequences. This class participates in two routines in the Recital, including the featured Ensemble production routine.
