Combination classes are designed to give the young dancer an opportunity to discover and explore different types of dance in one class. They incorporate movement, ballet, tap and jazz. Combination classes may combine ballet and tap, ballet and jazz or jazz and tap. When a student chooses to concentrate on a particular dance style the individual classes in tap, jazz or ballet are recommended.

 

  

Ballet is a classical form of dance with emphasis on body alignment, control, precision and grace. Develop the fundamentals of dance through classical barré, center work and progressions. Ballet is strongly recommended for all serious dancers because it provides the basic foundation for all other forms of dance.

Jazz dance combines stylistic movement with intricate rhythms and body isolations. It also includes leaps and turns as well as upbeat combinations of movement. Jazz technique is designed to increase body control and coordination and continues to be an essential element of musical theatre choreography, where it may be interwoven with other dance styles as appropriate for a particular show. Jazz dancing can be seen in shows such as West Side Story and Damn Yankees. Famous jazz dancers include Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, Jerome Robbins and Gus Giordano.

Lyrical is a fusion of Ballet and Jazz dance. Uses dance to interpret the emotion of music. Movement is meant to show the meaning of the music and tell a story. Lyrical dance has a poetic, expressive quality characterized by or expressing spontaneous, direct feeling. Choreography is meant to express deep personal emotions while being highly rhapsodic and enthusiastic.

 

"Better Days" Lyrical dance from 2012 recital

 

The name comes from the tapping sound made when the small metal plates on the dancer's shoes touch a hard surface. This lively, rhythmic tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician. Tap is a style of American theatrical dance using precise rhythmical patterns of foot movement and audible foot tapping. What is now called "Jazz dance" evolved from Tap dance, so both dance styles have many moves in common.
