Street Dance is an umbrella term that encompasses all of the Urban Styles of Dance that were originally created outside the dance studio in the early 70's such as Locking, Breaking, Hip Hop, House, Krump, Wacking, Vogue, Tutting and Waving. These classes are fun, energetic and a good workout! Students will be taught the foundations of a particular technique, whilst still keeping that friendly social attitude that brought these dances to life.
The contemporary style places a heavy emphasis on the connection between mind and body, with dancers being encouraged to explore their emotions through dances that push against traditional boundaries. This style of dance often involves a great deal of playing with balance, floorwork, fall and recovery, and improvisation..
Creative Movement classes are aimed at Toddlers and Pre - Schoolers. These classes use imaginitave stories, age appropriate music and props. They focus on positive social interaction with peers, body awareness, balance, and coordination.
