DESCRIPTIONS

BALLET – Dancers will gain knowledge of basic ballet terms and continue to build their dance vocabulary each year.  Exercises based on the Cecchetti Method of Ballet will be learned with an emphasis on terminology and precision. Students in the upper levels who display the proper alignment and strength may enter the Pre-Pointe classes.

JAZZ – Jazz includes polyrhythmic movement based on isolation and syncopation combining  traditional jazz movement and new contemporary style.

TAP –Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one’s tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. Two major variations on tap dance are rhythm (Jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dance and is generally  performed as a part of musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality.  Within the  CDL tap program we incorporate both variations and use both Al Gilbert and Foley training techniques.

HIP HOP – This class provides an aerobic workout through choreography focusing on level changes, floor work, hard hitting hip hop elements and various styles and themes. Instructors are focused on precision and accuracy of the movements given. They will push their students to let loose and have fun with the hip hop choreography while maintaining the proper technique. With many different styles and dance combinations, Hip Hop is sure to please any dancer and any age.

MODERN/CONTEMPORARY – Evolving from an expressionist movement, modern (contemporary) dance refused classical ballet’s stress on feet as the primary catalyst for dance movements. Instead the various modern dance techniques put stress on the use of the torso, employing such elements as contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation.

ACRO – The acrobatic movements performed in an acro dance are referred to as tricks. Various tricks are being commonly performed in competitive dance.  Acro levels vary widely in complexity and the skills required to perform them. Some skills that may be introduced or mastered throughout the season are Back layout, Back walkover, Cartwheel, Chest stand (chin stand), Elbow stand, Front aerial, Handstand, Roundoff.  Acro is a non-performance class, however skills which are mastered will be incorporated in other choreography

SKIPPING – Anyone can learn the ropes of skipping.  Beginning with the introductory levels of the RSA skipping program and the CanSkip Badge program.  Skippers will learn proper jumping mechanics, proper stretching and warm-up, single rope skills, long rope skills and double dutch.  Participants may have the opportunity to attend RSA Invitational Workshops.

LATIN FUSION –  Latin involves energetic dances that reflect the syncopated rhythm of the music being danced to. Learning the foundations of Latin including Salsa, Merengue &  Cha Cha Cha.  Blending with Hip Hop & Jazz Funk.
