Ballet is the essential foundation of all dance training and enhances dancer strength and flexibility. The study of ballet is strongly recommended for all dancers at every level. TVS Dance follows the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum® to instill proper technique and alignment. Age- and level-appropriate instruction includes barre, center and floor work, choreography, stage presence, and performance etiquette. Pointe work is optional and may begin with the recommendation of the instructor.
Filled with high energy and rhythmic movement, jazz training develops the dancer’s range of style, line, and form. Center and floor work, progressions, jumps, turns, and choreography provide a solid foundation in classic and current trends in jazz technique. Dancers experiment with self-expression, develop personal style, and focus on performance quality.
The study of lyrical joins elements of jazz, modern dance, and ballet technique through expressive dance narratives. Through the study of lyrical, dancers refine balance, increase extension, and connect physical movement with emotional expression. In addition to improvisation, classes consist of center and floor work, progressions, jumps, turns, and choreography.
More than a pop-culture trend, hip hop’s urban street flair combines break dance, pop and lock, freestyle, and tricks. Fun and high energy, hip hop reinforces musicality and a heightened sense of rhythm, self-confidence, expressive movement, and personal style. Dancers gain strength, flexibility, precision of movement, and stamina during this fun and upbeat class with age-appropriate music and choreography.
