Contemporary Ballet is a genre of dance that incorporates elements of classic ballet and modern dance. It employs classical ballet technique, but allows greater range of movement of the upper body and is not constrained to the rigorously defined bodylines and forms found in traditional, classical ballet. Students will work on posture, balance, strength, agility, and fluidity in this class.
Performance Ensemble is a class for students who are interested in performance opportunities throughout Cleveland. To participate in the Performance Ensemble, students are expected to attend at least one technique class and must be in attendance at every rehearsal unless prior notice is given. This group has showcased their talents at the Tolerance Fair, Baldwin Wallace half time shows, Autism 4D, and on stage alongside the Dancing Wheels Professional Company. (All Ages)
Jazz Funk, also called Street Jazz, borrows a lot of movement from other dance styles. From ballet, modern and hip-hop to lyrical, jazz funk incorporates little bits and pieces of other dance genres and wraps it into a funky style that is both fun and expressive! Students will take movements and combine them with current pop culture music.
