Class Descriptions

In this introductory course, students are introduced to barre-work and ballet vocabulary through structured exercises design to develop strength, flexibility, and musicality.  Students will learn body alignment, muscle control, as well as proper class etiquette. Ballet provides a foundation for many dance forms including Chinese classical dance.

Chinese Classical Dance
Both delicate and strong, classical Chinese dance features intricate gestures, circular motions, and use of breathe stemming from  Chinese movement traditions such as ancient court dance, tai chi,  Chinese opera as well as ballet. Class begins with barre warm-up and end with a short movement combination in center.

Chinese Folk Dance
Learn to dance with silk fans, drums, and even bowls and spoons! In China, there are 56 official indigenous ethnic groups each with their own form of dance. Many also vary from region to region. Folk dance from China's temperate southern provinces differ greatly to those found in China's predominantly Muslim west and chilly north.

Rooted in a thoroughly modern understanding of anatomy and physiology, contemporary incorporates movement from all dance styles for a dance form that reflects the modern day. Contemporary is an expressive, free form of dance unrestricted by rules that govern other dance styles.
