TDC Class Descriptions



BALLET: Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms and vital in becoming a technically trained dancer. Proper body placement and alignment are emphasized. Flexibility, balance, coordination, strength, and technique are achieved through barre and center floor work. Basic ballet terminology is introduced in our novice classes and continued at a higher level throughout our most advanced classes. Advanced level ballet classes include pointe technique in the curriculum. Our ballet faculty utilizes the Vaganova method with western influences.

MODERN: Modern dance blends technique with creativity and expressiveness and is a key component to a dancer’s versatility. Our Modern classes incorporate Graham, Humphrey, Limon and Cunningham techniques. Classes are done barefoot and explore a variety of movements and techniques throughout warm-up and combinations from beginning to advanced students.

JAZZ: Jazz is an exciting and ever-evolving dance form that explores and encourages individual expression and the development of personal style. Jazz can be strong and powerful or expressive and lyrical. Classes include basic to advanced jazz dance technique, terminology and movement quality with an emphasis on precise execution of choreography.

TAP: Tap is an important component of traditional and contemporary dance that is often incorporated into musical theatre and other genres of dance.  Students will learn rhythmic variations and performance skills through a series of tap combinations. Novice classes will focus on basic rhythms and terminology while advanced classes will add more difficult variations to the choreography.

MUSICAL THEATRE: Musical theatre dance is a fun and educational way to bring performance technique to dancers of all ages. Students enrolled in musical theatre will learn dance steps combined with theatrical performance and characterization. Dancers will learn a range of choreography, some of which is straight from the Broadway stage! Whether it is for the beginner or the seasoned dancer, musical theatre dance is a great way to become an even more versatile dancer.

HIP-HOP: Our beginning hip-hop class offers young students the opportunity to have fun and move to upbeat music in an uplifting, positive environment. Students will learn hip- hop skills through choreography and different rhythmic styles. Students will learn a variety of hip-hop combinations geared to improve their versatility as dancers as well as their stamina.

LYRICAL/CONTEMPORARY: Our lyrical/contemporary classes are geared for intermediate and advanced dancers who want to broaden their technique and performance skills. This class utilizes fluid movements and combinations with emotional motivation. Students will experiment with musicality, improvisation, and personal expression while learning the fundamentals of lyrical and contemporary movements.

ACROBATICS: This program is centered on fundamental acrobatic technique to increase flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, endurance, timing, body awareness, self-discipline, and confidence. Classes focus on proper hand placement and body alignment, with emphasis on the muscles and flexibility required to perform proper technique.
