BALLET is the essential foundation of dance training and should be taken at every level. At TVS, classical instruction embraces a developmentally appropriate progression of sound ballet principles to instill proper technique and body alignment. Age- and level- appropriate instruction includes barre, center and floor work, choreography, stage presence, and performance etiquette. Ballet enhances dancer strength, flexibility, range of motion, balance, and endurance. Pointe work is optional and may begin with the recommendation of the instructor.

 

Trinity Valley School is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Pre-Primary through Level 5 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Nancy Wright, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.


JAZZ develops the dancer’s range of style, line and form through high energy and rhythmic movement. Center and floor work, progressions, jumps, turns, and choreography provide a solid foundation in classic and current techniques. Crucial to performance, dancers experiment with self-expression and personal style.

 

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.


HIP HOP combines an urban, street flair with break dance, pop and lock, freestyle and tricks. More than a pop culture trend, 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 high energy class.
