Jazz 

Jazz dance allows for more freedom of movement and is a fun way in which a dancer may express their creativity.  As a derivation from ballet,  jazz dance contains the use of parallel lines and bold, dramatic movement including contractions and isolations.  Instructors will use a variety of music, including upbeat and lyrical styles.  Although it is not required, dancers will find it beneficial to study ballet in conjunction with jazz.  Dancers will perform in the Captivation Dance Affiliates Annual Studio Showcase.

 

Hip Hop

Hip hop is a fun, energetic class which is a fusion of both jazz and street dance.  While focusing on dynamics, rhythm and isolations, dancers will feel free to express themselves in an athletic nature.  Although it is not required, dancers will find it beneficial to study jazz in conjunction with hip hop.  Dancers will perform in the Captivation Dance Affiliates Summer Showcase.

 

Tap

Tap is a very percussive style which allows the dancer to learn about musicality and rhythm. Dancers will learn basic fundamentals of tap technique including terminology, correct body placement and posture.  In addition to learning individual steps, the dancer will gain an understanding of how to combine steps together in many different rhythmic combinations.  Captivation Dance Affiliates has developed a specific curriculum which includes both Broadway and rhythmic styles of tap.  Dancers will perform in the Captivation Dance Affiliates Annual Studio Showcase.

 

Tumbling

Our Tumbling Program consists of classes which teach the basics of floor tumbling, in addition to stretching and conditioning exercises.  Students are divided by skill level – Beginning (Level 1), Intermediate (Level 2) and Intermediate-Advanced. (Level 3). Placement is decided by the instructor upon evaluation.  Dancers will not perform in the Captivation Dance Affiliates Annual Studio Showcase.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance allows dancers to express themselves freely.  Unlike the strict structure of ballet, this genre of dance is a fusion of modern, jazz and ballet.  Dancers will utilize floor work, improvisation and center combinations choreographed to expressive, lyrical music.  Although it is not required, dancers will find it beneficial to study jazz and ballet in conjunction with contemporary. Dancers will perform in the Captivation Dance Affiliates Annual Studio Showcase.
