Hip-Hop / Break Dancing

The cultural revolution that is hip-hop spawned entirely new forms of dance. Many styles, such as break dancing, originated on the streets and slowly found their way into dance competitions and official venues.

This class is a fast-paced lesson in the history of the hip-hop genre. From the break beats of the early eighties and the sounds of DJ Afrika Bambaataa and Kool Herc to the latest clean hip-hop track, this class offers nonstop funky beats and a fun workout to boot.


Taught by our hip-hop guru Cody Edwards, the core class is suitable for pre-teens of all levelswhere they learn the dance moves for an eclectic mix of old hip-hop classics and new hits.

Jazz / Modern Dance

Jazz is a highly expressive and unique genre of music. It is a quintessentially American form of music that relies heavily on improvisation, poly-rhythms and syncopation.

This type of dancing is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns.  To excel in jazz, dancers typically need a strong background in ballet, as it encourages grace and balance.


What is Afro-fusion? Afro-fusion is a fusion of West African, Hip hop, jazz, and HBCU (majorette) dance styles. Classes are upbeat and begin with a warm-up, followed by movement across the floor and a choreographed combination. Serious fun for your muscles and cardio while learning a blend of rhythmic styles!


Classes are for students ages 8 and Up.

Teen/Adult Tap 18 & Up

Tap is a great fitness workout that promote cardio, energy, enthousiasum in a non-judgemental and supportive environment!  There is an emphasis on rhythm and basic technique that is sutable for all levels.


This tap class is for ages 16 & Up.
