Ballet: Ballet serves as a backbone and foundation for many other styles of dance, as many other dance genres are based on ballet. Ballet is based on techniques that have been developed over centuries. Ballet uses music and dance to tell stories.
Jazz: Jazz is a fun dance style that relies heavily on originality and improvisation. Many jazz dancers mix different styles into their dancing, incorporating their own expression. Jazz dancing often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions.
Tap: Tap dancing is an exciting form of dance in which dancers wear special shoes equipped with metal taps. Tap dancers use their feet like drums to create rhythmic patterns and timely beats.
Hip-Hop: Hip-hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip-hop music, that evolved from the hip-hop culture. Hip-hop includes various moves such as breaking, popping, locking and krumping, and even house dance. Dancers are encouraged to freely express themselves through this style of dance. Dancers can’t be shy in this class.
Contemporary: Contemporary dance is the name for a modern concert dance genre. It is not a specific dance technique but a collection of methods developed from modern and post-modern dance and can take on many forms.
Pointe: Pointe is the most advanced form of Ballet and can therefore only be taught to and performed by the more advanced dancers. The distinguishing characteristic of this style is that the dancers perform on the “box” of the shoes or on their toes. Our Pointe class includes intensive barre work, ankle strengthening work, center pirouette (turn) preparation and allegro (fast) and adagio (slow) combinations. An extensive knowledge of ballet terminology (French) is expected at this level.
Acrobatics: Acrobatics is the performance of extraordinary feats of balance, agility, and motor coordination. It can be found in many of the performing arts genres. TDC offers four levels: Tumbling Tots (3-5yr.), Level I, Level II, Level III. The acrobatics instructor places students based on skill level.
