Empower Dance Combination Class Description

All Empower Dance classes that are offered as an add-on to our tumbling classes will instruct the students in the fundamental movements associated with the styles of: ballet, jazz, hip-hop, tap & syncopation, creative movement, and improvisation.  Class level will be adjusted according to the skill level of the students in each session.  These dance classes are usually the first experience little people have with dance - so our emphasis will be on having fun while learning dance along with appropriate classroom etiquette.

 

Ballet*:

Foundational elements such as alignment, turnout, portebra , and correct body postures with beautiful lines and angles will be taught throughout the year.  

 

*Ballet will be highly emphasized in the Empower Dance add-on classes offered - as the foundational dance movements associated with ballet form the basis for the movements contained in many of the other dance styles.  These movements also work with tumbling to create strength and proper alignment for children.  Such as pointed toes and straight legs during kicks and tricks.

 

Jazz:

Techniques emphasizing proper execution of turns, kicks, leaps/jumps and counting music.  

 

Hip-hop:

Techniques like freestyle and street style dancing will be taught in addition to self expression in addition to basic elements like beginning gliding, popping, locking and breaking.

 

Basic tap & syncopation:

Tap dancing basics which emphasize rhythm, timing, coordination and syncopation (musicality).  

 

Creative movement and Improvisation:

This style will be taught throughout the year and allows students to weave all of the techniques and movements learned from ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and tap to create individualized contemporary dances.  Proper form, control, technique, and execution of all styles in addition to self expression will be incorporated into the dance movements.
