Dance Styles is an introduction to the steps, techniques and styles of dance commonly used in theatre arts. Classes consist of a jazz or ballet warm-up, floor stretches, isolations and center combinations incorporating jazz, tap, ballet, folk, social and lyrical dance steps in forms that are frequently used in musical theatre productions. The classes develop the “dancing actor” by working on characterization through movement and choreography.

This class is intended for the intermediate level dancer. It is based on the traditional elements of modern dance technique; floor work, fall and recovery, spirals, concepts of space, time and force, developing technical proficiency, improvisational skills and musicality and rhythmic accuracy. The class is also enhanced with elements of today's more contemporary dance. The goal of this class is for the student to gain a deeper understanding of modern dance and to explore their individuality as a dancer.
