Class Descriptions


 Acro and Tumble - AcroDance is an art form specifically for dancers. Acro has softer, more lyrical looking lines, with the emphasis being on lengthening "through" the tricks and holding pretty balances with interesting variations. In Acro, we teach our students to dance into and out of Acro tricks, with minimal obvious "prep" before and after a trick. Despite being technically difficult to execute, acrobatic tricks are meant to blend in seamlessly with dance steps, providing an extra level of excitement and flair to dance choreography.                                                                            


Combination classes/Creative Movement  are 30-45 minutes long and the dancers will begin to learn dance basics. They will learn to be aware of their movements with the music, as well as, picking up on basic rhythms. These classes are for students ages 3-5.


Ballet is a great class for all levels. Develop the fundamentals of dance through control, poise, precision, fluency and grace using the technique and style of classical ballet. 


Tap teaches students of all ages to become rhythmic percussionists with their feet. The dance style enhances student’s musical awareness and ability to interpret rhythms. This is a great dance class for all those children that love to make music whether vocally, with traditional instruments or by banging on mom's pots and pans. 

 

Jazz and Hip Hop Combo  involves the instruction of jazz technique and hip hop elements.  It is not necessary for recreational classes, but we do recommend that anyone who takes jazz also take a ballet class. We also offer single subject Hip Hop and Jazz to certain age groups/levels.                           


KPDA Xtreme Team classes are by invitation or audition only. These classes are taught on a higher level for the more serious dancer. Previous dance experience is required for these classes.
