Ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance and is of utmost importance at Creative Dance & Music Studio.  All
of our combination classes contain ballet and it continues into teenage years.  Ballet develops poise, control,
strength, flexibility, balance, and grace.  Ballet begins as creative movement with simple movements and
positions in our Baby Dancers and progresses in terminology, positions, and movements of the Cecchetti
method of classical ballet.  Upon teacher recommendation, pointe lessons are available for dancers over 12
years old.

While there are many forms of tap dancing, we focus on traditional tap dance.  Tap utilizes foot patterns to
create rhythmical sounds with metal plates on the ball and heel of the shoe.  Tap can be performed either with
music or acapella (without music).  Tap develops rhythm, timing, balance, coordination, and cardiovascular

Jazz is a fun, energetic form of dance enjoyed by all ages.  While jazz is a derivative of ballet, it is usually
performed with upbeat, rhythmic, popular music.  Jazz class consists of a warm up, technique, and
progressions.  Skills include stretch and flexibility, turns, and jumps.  Ballet is required to take jazz class.

Hip Hop
Hip hop is a form of jazz dance, and actually has many forms itself.  Our style is commonly thought of as funky
jazz or street jazz.  Hip Hop is performed with upbeat, pop music (typically a form of rap or R&B) but it is
always monitored for content and lyrics.

Acrobats/Tumbling is a gymnastics type class that focuses on tumbling, balance, and stretch.  A great addition
to any young dancer's classes.  The class reinforces strength and flexibility.  It includes cartwheels, tumbles,
round-offs, back bends, front limbers, handstands, headstands, walkovers, handsprings.  Beginner acrobats
are included in our Baby & Mini classes.

Lyrical (or Contemporary) is a form of dance that can be thought of as a combination of ballet and jazz.  Lyrical
dance is matched to the lyrics and feeling of the music and has a strong ballet, or technical, foundation.  
Students ages 8+ that are enrolled in a classical ballet class, can register for the class held on Thursday

Teen Classes
Individual classes of Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, and Hip Hop can be selected for older dancers.  All classes are 45
minutes, with the exception of advanced ballet, which is 60 minutes.  Each class is $54 per month (advanced
ballet $58) but
multi-class discounts are available for dancers taking more than one class.  Ballet is a
requirement to be enrolled in Jazz & Lyrical class, but not for Tap or Hip Hop, although Ballet will help with
those disciplines as well.

Competition Classes
Competition Teams are offered by teacher recommendation only.  Each April, teacher recommendations are
made and team auditions are held in August.  Competition dancers take an additional class each week to focus
on refining skills, learning new choreography, and rehearsing.  A summer intensive class held in August is also
required.  Qualified candidates will take at least ballet and jazz, have excellent attendance, a good attitude,
be a team player, and have a passion for dance.  2-3 local competitions are attended each year. One
convention is required each year.
