We offer an exceptional ballet program to students ages 3 to adult. Our instructors are skilled at engaging each student with appropriate challenges. Whether your student participates in a recreational way or desires to pursue this ancient craft more seriously in the long-term, our classes are a fabulous place to nurture their abilities. Dancers of both sexes are encouraged to participate in our ballet program where they will learn improved posture and confidence, which when presented in their adolescent years, are sure to become long-lasting habits that will benefit them for years to come.

jazz

Our jazz dance classes teach a genre of dance that developed alongside the jazz music movement in the early 20th century. Students learn proper warm up techniques that involve stretching for flexibility, core strengthening, balance, and more. They are taught the joy of jumping and turning, kicking and hitting the pose! This style of dance is incredibly exciting and popular. All music and choreography used for dance classes at The Arts Connection is age appropriate.

tap

Our tap dance classes support each student’s development of great technique, rhythm, and creative choreography. Students gradually learn to listen to and create music, with their feet as their instruments! This is a class where students are encouraged to make noise, while also learning about specific elements of tap technique such as “shading” and keeping a beat. Many different tap styles will be touched upon over the course of the year so that students will feel well versed in every tap genre. In addition, our instructors educate students on the history of tap, and the wonderful tap dancers that pioneered the genre both in the past, and presently. Our tap dancers enjoy a fun dance class that also enriches them as an individual. All music and choreography used for dance classes at The Arts Connection is age appropriate.

lyrical

This form of dance goes beyond the structured steps of ballet and possesses a unique creative freedom that other genres do not. It teaches an ‘out of the box’ approach to expressing emotions through the art of dance. It is abstract movement that does not necessarily need to tell a story. Instead, it can be unpredictable and move with great speed, utilize rhythmic variation, and appear disordered, but underneath it all, relies on strong dance technique. Contemporary and Lyrical dance compliments the other dance forms by working on each student’s ‘core’ or ‘centre’ and helps each dancer become even more ‘in tune’ with their body and all of its muscle groups.
