Basic ballet concepts, vocabulary and skills are introduced through standard combinations at the barre and in the center. Each level is designed to be taken for 2 years in a row. As students progress through the levels the exercises will increase in length and difficulty and more emphasis will be placed on retention of choreography and performance quality. **This is not a RAD Grade class but can be used to further your practice or simply an enjoyable Ballet Class. For those dancers interested in pursuing their RAD exams please notify your teacher, exam classes will open in October.

Contemporary dance assists with the development of creative and expressive movement as well as enhance spatial and body awareness as dancers gain fluidity, grace and control. Contemporary choreography pulls from a variety of other dance styles such as modern, jazz, lyrical, and ballet. It incorporates both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet as well as a unique focus on contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and the versatility of improvisation skills. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used as well.
