Class Descriptions (not all classes are offered every session)

Ballet: Ballet technique class provides the fundamental basis for all other movement styles. The skater will learn proper posture, body alignment, flexibility, control, precision, grace, and musicality.

Contemporary: Contemporary, or modern dance, focuses on developing movement and flexibility through the upper body, artistry, creativity, expression, and an understanding of complex musical structures.

Jazz/Hip Hop: This dance technique involves movement isolations of the torso, hips, and limbs often in complex rhythmic structures. The style ranges from classic jazz and Broadway to more contemporary hip hop movement vocabulary. Additional emphasis is placed on presentation and performance quality.

Yoga: Expands your physical and mental comfort zone. By balancing ease and effort, strength and stability (sometimes in long holds), your body becomes strong and steady. Breath awareness and pranayama (breathing exercises) can sooth and energize your mind or even balance the hemispheres of your brain giving you an easy method to reduce stress and anxiety and let go of habitual thought patterns. Expect to breathe deeply, be encouraged to push the boundaries of your comfort zone, and move in new and interesting ways in and positive and supportive environment.

Intro to Dance: A fun-filled creative movement class designed to introduce the student to dance through a series of structured improvisational activities. Learning focuses on developing creativity, musicality, large motor skills, and the four basic elements of dance/choreography (direction, level, speed, and shape).

Pilates: Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.

Repertory: This class offers the student the opportunity to learn choreography for an informal performance at the end of the session.

Stretching for Flexibility: This class focuses on deep stretching specifically for flexibility training and often includes yoga-based postures. It is recommended to take this class at the END of a skater’s training day. It is not a warm-up class.

Warm-up Classes: (Level 1 & 2) An excellent way for our lower level skaters to begin their training day.  This class will utilize fundamentals from Pilates, ballet, jazz, and/or creative movement as well as light stretching to warm up the skaters’ bodies and get them ready to hit the ice.  (Level 3 & 4) Ballet barre and light stretching will be utilized for a solid warm up before skating.
