Our Philosophy: ABK dance classes encourage growth in physical coordination, self-esteem, discipline, and motivation. Students enrolled in our program will progress at their own pace, whether it be through the basic techniques of ballet, the rhythm and unique stylization of jazz, or upbeat variations of old and new hip hop dance moves. Our goal as a dance program is to help each student set and achieve their own goals, teach students awareness of their bodies in motion and self-confidence, and contribute to a happy and healthy lifestyle.  Click here for more information on the Dance Team!

Preschool Dance (2-6 years)

Young children seem drawn to music, and from an early age, they will begin dancing when they hear it. While the physical benefits of dance are well-known, dance also brings social and emotional benefits, according to the National Dance Education Organization. Preschool children will learn social skills such as cooperation and peer interaction as well as building self-esteem when they are involved in dance experiences

Creative Movement (2-5 years)

*Required attire: leotard of choice, and ballet shoes

This class is a fun filled introduction in the world of dance. Each week students will hop, skip, and twirl through an imaginary adventure! By encouraging creativity and independence in a fun and supportive atmosphere each student will blossom into a confident little dancer. Classes include practice of dance moves and proper terminology (like releve and plie), pretend play, and practicing dance routines to be performed at our semi-annual recitals. 

Mini Hip Hop (Ages 3-6)

*Required attire: Active wear

This class is a fun filled introduction in the world of hip hop. Each week students will hop, skip, and dance to new and upbeat music and practice preschool friendly hip hop moves! By encouraging creativity and independence in a fun and supportive atmosphere each student will blossom into a confident mini hip hopper. Classes include practice of dance moves, freestyle dances, and learning dance routines to be performed at our semi-annual recitals. 

Pre Ballet

This class is for the students who are no longer in the Creative Movement age category who would like to start training for Ballet. This class will teach basic positions, and ballet terms you will need for Ballet 1.
*white leo/tights/pink ballet shoes. Skirts optional

Tap

 

Tap dance is a type of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. This creative movement class will be similar in structure to the regular creative movement class with more focus on the basics of tap- shuffles, ball changes, heel-steps and the like.
*leo/tights & tap shoes required. 

Pom Dance

 

Pom focuses on lines, formations, cheer jumps, sharp arm movement and form. It may include tumbling, and will use hip hop and jazz techniques in their dances. This style is commonly used by professional cheerleaders in the NFL and NBA.

School Age Dance

Regular dance practice can increase your child’s flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. The repetitive movements involved in dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination and improve overall cardiovascular health. Dancing is an aerobic form of exercise. In addition to being a physical activity, dancing is also a highly social activity. Dance lessons can strengthen social and communication skills, as they learn how to work as part of a team, and develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation.

Ballet Levels 1 & 2 (Ages 9 and up)

1 1/2 hour class                                          Adult classes available!

*Required attire for Ballet classes: Leotards, tights, and ballet shoes (tight shorts or ballet skirts are o.k.)

Considered by most to be the ABC’s of dance, ballet is a combination of strength, flexibility, grace, and technique that sets a foundation for a solid dancer.  Focusing on muscle and core strength and balance, this style also teaches the basic vocabulary necessary to ANY kind of dancer. Wonderful for lengthening and sculpting muscles as well as improving posture. 

 

Jazz

1 hour class

*Required attire: Leotards, Tights, Shorts or leggings, and tan jazz shoes

Our jazz class enables a dancer’s individual style and originality to come out.  We offer a fun, energetic class with unique moves including leaps, kicks, turns, and various fun moves that dancers will love. Each class will learn routines to new and old style music that students will be eager to perform at our semi-annual dance recital.

Hip Hop

1 hour class

Hip Hop classes incorporate the latest street style dance forms. This is a high energy upbeat style of dance as is seen in many music videos.

*Required attire: Active wear, tennis shoes.

Boys Dance

Boys will learn multiple styles of dance along with basic tricks/acro moves. We also ask that the boys add a boys gymnastics class or Acro Jazz class to help progress in this dance class.

Contemporary/Modern

1 hour class                 Adult classes available!

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. It is recommended that you have experience in another style of dance, or you are adding a second style of dance class.
