Ballet is a highly technical form of dance with it’s own vocabulary. It is the foundational technique used in most other styles of dance.

Ballet is structured and instills discipline and work ethic, while creating beauty and elegance.

Jazz dance is a style that has throughout its history developed with popular music. Jazz is typically done to an up tempo song making the class more appealing to kids who want to learn something while still getting to move a lot. At Move Dance and Fitness, we strive to stay current in our jazz class while being knowledgeable of those roots. Let us put those 80s costumes away!

CONTEMPORARY/LYRICAL (7 and up)

Contemporary is a class that explores the total movement potential of the body. It does not have any set of standards to follow so the students and teachers can create their own movement and style. We do incorporate lyrical in this class. By incorporating lyrical, your child will learn how to express and tell a story through dance. This class is fun for kids and packed with new ways to move and express.
