Here are short descriptions of the types of classes offered.  Most classes are 45 minutes long and perform one routine in our Spring Recital.  Combo classes are 45 or 60 minutes long and perfom two dances in recital.  Classes must have a minimum number of students enrolled in order to be offered. If you have any questions, please feel free to call, or better yet, stop by our beautiful studio. 

CLASS TYPES OFFERED

 

Ballet

The ballet taught in our combo classes is classical, without the rigid structure of a ballet academy.  The foundation of all dance forms, ballet should stress technique, emotion, and beauty.  Older classes are more structured.

Lyrical

A combination of ballet, modern and jazz techniques, lyrical places special emphasis on the mood or lyrics of the music.  Songs are usually slower.  Offered for 3rd grade and up.

Technique

Technique classes are designed and required for competition dancers, however non-competition dancers are welcome too.  These classes focus specifically on the technical elements required for competition dancers: various turns, leaps, tricks, flexibility, and general style.  Classes are an hour long and do not perform in recital.  Offered 5th grade and up.

Jazz

Jazz incorporates a variety of music and styles from 50's big band to the latest radio hit.  It is faster-paced music with upbeat moves.  Highly recommended for those looking toward high school pom in the Norman district.  Offered to levels first grade and up.

Tap

Tap dances are known for their skill, high energy, and crowd appeal.  We literally make music with our feet.  Tap is included in all combo classes and offered through 12th grade.  Because tap is such a sequential discipline, we recommend taking classes consecutively.
