Classes are an introduction to the basics of jazz and ballet. In each class, students will focus on flexibility, coordination, musicality and strength. Dancers will begin learning teamwork skills, building self-confidence and expressing creativity.
For dancers ages 3-5, pre-dance classes are an introduction to the basics of jazz and ballet. In each 60-minute class, students will focus on flexibility, coordination, musicality and strength. Dancers will begin learning teamwork skills, building self-confidence and expressing creativity.
Ballet is the foundation of all dance. Dancers will use barre work, centre work and choreography to develop technique, strength, poise and grace.
Jazz focuses on flexibility, strength and technique. Classes include a warm-up to top 40 music, progressions down the floor and choreography to different styles of music.
*Jazz is a great additional class for dancers taking acro as we use our transitions from jazz in acro choreography.
Dancers will work on rhythm and overall musicality. Tap dance teaches coordination and timing. Dancers will learn proper terminology, style and tap technique.
Hip hop classes are instructed in a high energy environment. Fun, funky, smooth and hard- hitting, dancers are encouraged to develop their own personal style! Your dancer is guaranteed a fun class each week with different combinations and hip hop styles.
Acro focuses on strength, flexibility and control. Classes include a warm-up to top 40 music, acrobatic skills down the mats and eventually choreography to include our new tricks for our year end recital. All KDC acro staff are Acrobatic Arts certified and are able to spot dancers of all ages and levels.
Contemporary dance is usually story-based and consists of unpredictable movement, speed and rhythmic changes as well as classical technique. This class is only offered at the teen level as maturity and understanding of emotions and body is paramount.
