Gotta Watch the Videos featuring our Gotta Dance Students
For children 3-5, we offer a fun introductory class called Kinderdance. Our teachers incorporate jazz, ballet, and acrobatics into a fun dance class. Our kinderdancer’s begin to learn musicality, pointing their toes, and memorization. After learning these fundamental skills, they will incorporate them into a fun dance piece to be displayed for parents at our year-end recital.
Our lyrical and contemporary classes offer dancers an opportunity to experience lyrical dance, which combines techniques and skills from ballet, jazz and modern dance.
Students will also explore how lyrical dance emphasizes interpretation of music lyrics to tell a story with movement that can be fluid, graceful or abstract.
Hip Hop Dance
Hip Hop consists of a combination of different techniques like, popping, locking, housing, funk, freestyle, breaking, boogaloo and learning the latest moves seen on all the hottest new music videos. It is an entertaining form of dance, incorporating challenging routines and beats.
This program is an excitingly high-energy dance experience that is fun for dancers of all ages. No previous dance experience is necessary for the course but students have to be prepared to challenge themselves. Each class begins with warm up exercises followed by a distinct set of choreographed movements that will be taught step by step with audio.
Our acrobatics classes help dancers improve flexibility and strength while learning a combination of dance and gymnastic-style movements. These classes will help your child learn cartwheels, handstands, elbow stands, double tricks, and more.
In this class, we teach students to engage both legs and arms to create lower-level dynamic movements and patterns as well as top-rocks and freestyle dance. Students will learn how to confidently own their style and rhythm on the dance floor.
Dancers are taught the basics and fundamentals of dance through ballet. The dancer will develop poise and self-confidence through this graceful art form. Dancers are trained according to the Cecchetti methods.
Our jazz classes will teach our dancers fundamental jazz steps. Our teachers work with the dancers on jumps and turns and musicality. Students will get the chance to develop their dance skills and movement through across the floor work, centre, and learn the fundamentals that can be used in other dance forms.
This program incorporates rhythm, timing, and coordination. Dancers will learn and acquire basic, progressive, and intricate tap skills. Tap dancing allows dancers to make music with their feet by performing rhythm-based tap choreography.
Our tap classes will help develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn to build flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. The class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun.
