Elite Dance Studio's Terms and Conditions

 


Children's Combo: (Parents are invited to watch their child‘s first class of each month. Please make child care arrangements for siblings and other children.)

This is usually the first experience in a dance classroom with a teacher and other students and without mom.  Etiquette such as listening, following instructions and being respectful is emphasized.  Pre-ballet and tap exercises are taught to introduce important dance basics such as stretching, concentration, rhythm, coordination and discipline. The purpose of this program is to provide a strong foundation for continued dance training as well as develop a love for dance itself.


Hip-Hop: 
Hip-Hop is one of the most popular styles of dance, primarily danced or choreographed to Hip-Hop music.  People learn the basics as well as gliding, popping, locking and breaking. It is extremely athletic and all ages and skill levels can pick up on its choreography and technique. We do keep our music, choreography and costumes age appropriate and modest.


Jazz: 
Jazz is a classification shared by a broad range of dance styles. Jazz refers to several related dance styles. All of them are connected via common roots, namely tap, ballet, jazz music, and African-American rhythms Because of the technical demands in our Jazz classes, students are encouraged to supplement their jazz training with a ballet class. 


Ballet:
Ballet provides the necessary foundation that is needed to be successful in every other form of dance.  Ballet teaches poise, grace, discipline, correct posture flexibility, and strength.


Tumbling: 
Our tumbling program will focus on the skills that are needed for competitive dance and cheer such as walk-overs, aerials, back handsprings and back tucks.  Stretching and strength training will also be incorporated to safely prepare the body and prevent injuries.


Tap/Clogging: 
Tap and Clogging is one of the best forms of dance to instill musicality, rhythm, and coordination.  It can be structured for the beginner to teach the skills above, or it can be extremely challenging and complex with different rhythms and tricks. Today Cloggers dance to many styles of music, but always music with a lively beat.


Company/Company Prep: 
The Elite Dance Studio Company is offered for dancers 6 and up who wish to be part of an advanced dance program and are working on improving technical and performing skills in all areas of dance. Being in these companies requires dedication and discipline. Emphasis is on strong technique with performing and competing opportunities. Our company members make great friends, build self-esteem, and  learn  dependability and sportsmanship. 


Conditioning & Stretching:
Our conditioning and stretching classes are extremely important for every individual dancer.  As dancers spend class time developing strength and technique, muscles are left sore and begin to tighten.  This class provides the consistency with weekly stretching to produce greater results in flexibility and a an elite range of motion in the body.


Pointe:
Our Pointe program is a part of classical ballet technique, usually practiced using specially reinforced shoes called Pointe shoes or toe shoes. 


Turns & Leaps:
Elite Dance Studio's Turns and Leaps class teaches the body's center is an axis from which all movements begin and end, making it possible to maintain balance and control while executing turns. This class will give the dancer the advantage of the core strength used when dancers are performing big leaps that look elegant as well as pirouetting across the floor with ease and grace.  


Choreography:
Choreography is the art of designing sequences of movements in which motion, form, or both are specified.  Choreography may also refer to the design itself, which is sometimes expressed by means of dance notation.  The word choreography literally means “dance-writing.”


Cheerleading:
Cheerleading s a physical activity, sometimes a competitive sport, based on organized routines, usually ranging from one to three minutes, which contain the components of tumbling, dance, jumps, cheers, and stunting to direct spectators of events to cheer on sports teams at games or to participate in competitions. The athlete involved is called a cheerleader.


Contemporary:
Contemporary is characterized by its versatility: contemporary can be danced to almost any style or music, or united with other dance forms to create new styles of movement. Contemporary seeks to work with the natural alignment of the body, and is therefore safe and accessible for beginners. At the same time, the ease of movement promoted by contemporary dance technique allows experienced dancers to push new boundaries of body movement.
