All Starz Dance Program We offer a variety of dance classes for boys and girls ages 2-18. Each class will begin with a fun warm-up including isolations, positions, & stretches. Next, different skills, combinations, & passes will be practiced in place or across the floor. Plus the group will work to learn & perfect their routine(s). Every dance group will have a head instructor, and many dance groups also have an assistant instructor. All recreational dancers are invited to participate in our annual recital, plus some local exhibitions. We also have a competitive dance team with auditions in the summer for those who wish to be more serious about dance.

Dance Style Descriptions Acrobatic – Acro is a combination of dance & tumbling. Flexibility moves, gymnastics skills, strength holds, leaps, jumps, and turns all come together through the use of dance choreography. Ballet - Classical ballet is the foundation for all dance styles, as it helps to develop physical control, poise, strength, balance, & grace. Ballet students receive valuable training including the positions of classical ballet, barre, center floor work, and the use of proper terminology. Creative – An introduction to dance designed to develop the young dancer’s coordination, creativity, and rhythm, through music appreciation, basic dance steps, & mime. Creative movement, jazz, & ballet styles are all incorporated in each lesson. Props are also used to reach the students & engage them in learning. Hip-Hop - Hip hop dance is a blend of today’s high energy “street style” movement. Current R & B and Hip Hop music are used as students learn the latest popular styles & funky movements of dance. Jazz - Jazz is a fusion of kicks, leaps, jumps, and turns to the beat of music. Students work on technique, posture, and coordination as they learn standard jazz moves. Choreography is taught through center floor work & combinations across the floor.
