Classes

We are so excited that you are interested in joining our Dance Attic Family! Below are our Class Offerings for the 2020-21 Dance Season. We have enabled web registration for certain classes here on our website. Due to COVID-19 limitations and processes we are not enabling this for all classes. Please find your dancers age group and sign up for whatever class is enabled. Not all of our classes are listed for registration so that we can better dictate what class sizes end up looking at, so again find your age group and things will shift from there. Once our registration period has ended we will be looking at our numbers and finalizing classes as well as schedules for our Fall season to have class sizes of 9 or less dancers in each studio. Please note that the tuition listed are baseline for each individual class and does not include any of our discounts for multi-class registrations as well as sibling discounts if that applies to your family!

Combo (Ages 5 +)*

Recreational Competition

Combo ballet/tap/jazz: a 1 1/2 or 2 hour class designed to introduce the young dancer to several styles of dance while building a good foundation of basics for future dance education. Tap is taught for 30 minutes and ballet and jazz are taught for 30 minutes each in the 1 1/2 hour class and 45 minutes each in the 2 hour class. You may also choose to take just ballet and jazz if you wish.

The following special classes may be taken in addition to a combo class. (Combo is required.) Class placement is by age and skill level as determined by TDA staff.

Advanced Classes  C-H (Ages 12+)*

The following classes are offered for advanced students.  TDA staff will place students according to their ability level in each dance style (You may not be with the same group of dancers in every style).  Please see the weekly schedule for the times.

Lyrical

Ballet: a formalized type of performance dance. Ballet is a highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary and is the basis for most other dance styles. It is primarily performed with the accompaniment of classical music. The Dance Attic feels strongly that all styles of dance should be reinforced with Ballet.

Pointe: an extension of advanced level ballet. This class is offered by invitation only. Dancers will be evaluated by the instructor during the first month of class to determine placement.

Musical Theater

Jazz: provides a strong technical foundation which enables a dancer to focus on the stylistic and performance aspects of dance. Jazz is characterized by leaps and turns, where correct posture and technique are essential. A jazz dancer’s strong and sharp movements are greatly aided by a good background in ballet technique. However, while ballet movement emphasizes the upbeat of music, jazz dance emphasizes the downbeat.  Jazz is a required class for all dancers.

Tap

Tap: a form of dance in which a tapping sound is made when metal plates on the dancer’s shoes strike a hard surface. Tap is characterized by rhythm and sound, thus making the tap dancers percussive musicians.

Lyrical

Lyrical: uses dance steps and motions to interpret music and express emotion. A lyrical dancer’s movements attempt to tell a story and show the meaning of the music. Lyrical is a deep, personal, emotional dance style that is known by its connected and graceful movements. The rhythm and beat of the dance is synced with the lyrics and mood of the song.

Lyrical

Technique: incorporates the techniques of jazz and ballet with a strong focus in strengthening flexibility, turns, and jumps.  this is a technique only class with no recital/competition routine or costume.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop: a dance style primarily danced to hip hop music that has evolved as a part of the hip hop or street dancing culture. This can include a wide range of styles such as breaking, popping, locking, and krumping.

Acro: a style of dance that combines dance technique with acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character and unique choreography which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics. An evaluation by TDA staff is required for placement in the appropriate skill level class.  This is a technique only class with no recital/competition routine or costume.

*All ages are approximate.  Placement is determined by a combination of factors including age and skill level by TDA staff.   We feel strongly that all styles of dance should be reinforced with ballet and jazz, therefore we require all dancers to take these classes.  Exceptions may be made only at the discretion of the staff.
