Dance Curriculum
BALLETis the basis of all dancing. It requires concentrated and repetitive study and demands a high level of self-discipline. Poise, grace, and coordination, along with music appreciation, are accomplished through proper ballet training.

POINTE - is an advanced form of ballet. Students are put on pointe only after extensive ballet training and then only with teacher approval.

LYRICAL is a form of dance which encompasses both modern, jazz and ballet techniques and is performed to contemporary and classic vocal music.

TAPis the only type of dance which is native to America. Tap training develops rhythm and coordination as well as improving the ability to think and react spontaneously.

With proper training, tap is also beneficial in developing creativity.
