Improv

Designed to teach students a form of theatre in which the actors (“players”) use improvisational acting techniques, called “games,” to create impromptu scenes and characters based on minimal suggestions. Confidence in self-expression builds from practicing these games.

Learn the differences between short and long form improv games and develop the quick thinking and improv technique that makes for a great performance. Much of the work is based on the same techniques the professionals use in Chicago’s famous Second City, L.A.’s The Groundlings, “Who’s Line Is It Anyway” and even our own local improv troupes like Impromedy.

Ages 7 to 17 years. Classes are kept small, so space is limited.

Voice

Designed to teach students how to recognize melody, tempo and pitch in music and how to reproduce a musical selection using all these elements together in a performance while developing control. Performance is a major component in all the classes offered.

Various interpretations of selections are explored taking into account the richness of the cultures of the world. Students may learn Italian arias, classical pieces in Latin, as well as learning contemporary music as seen on popular television and on Broadway.

Ages 7 to 17 years.

Tap

From its roots in African rhythms, tap became a very popular form of dance characterized by tapping sounds created from metal plates that are attached to both the ball and heel of a dancer’s shoe.

Tap has made a resurgence in recent years with popular shows like “Bring In Da’ Noise, Bring In Da’ Funk” and groups like Tap Dogs. We specialize in this form of dance, integrating the various styles as presented by well known tappers such as Gregory Hines, Savion Glover and today’s hot stars that tour the country hosting workshops like JUMP and “Tap the Map.”

Ages 3 to 17 years.

Required: Students must supply their own tap shoes.

Ballet

This classical dance style, invented and popularized by Louis IVX of France, uses formalized steps and gestures set in intricate, flowing patterns to create expression through movement. Our classes integrate the techniques that have evolved since then, from the classical French style to the Russian “Ballet Russes” style evident in the Bolshoi Ballet and influencing great dancers like Barishnikov.  Dramatic interpretation and style is key in all ballet classes and required for any student who wishes to become a Dance Team Member.

Ages 3 to 17 years.

Required:

Female students-ballet shoes, pink tights and black leotards.

Male students-ballet shoes.

Jazz

Born in early America from various musical traditions, including European and African roots, this style of dance has evolved into many styles, but most popularly done to pop music.

Jazz is a technical form that helps dancers stretch and strengthen, and also work on their turns, leaps and dance technique. Not an easy style to master, but like ballet, it forms the basis for many other forms of dance including the popular Hip-Hop.

Ages 6 to 17 years.

Required: Jazz sneakers or footwear.

Hip Hop

A “street” style of dance often seen in music videos, it is a less technical and more high-energy style of dance that is done wearing street clothes and sneakers. This is a constantly evolving form of dance that is very much based on the popular trends in music and fashion. An easy style to pick up, hip-hop requires a positive attitude and a lot of endurance.

Ages 5 to 17 years.

Required: Sneakers, yo!

 

Acro (Tumbling)

Focusing on the tumbling, aerial flips and tricks that may be incorporated in performances of all types, Acro is a great intro to being more flexible and enhancing your performance styles. Students learn to change their centers of balance attempting handstands, round-offs and even front flips. Being that it is an introductory class, instruction moves at your pace, but advanced techniques are available for practice.

Ages 3 to 17 years.

Required: Comfortable clothes.
