Ages 8 to Adult

Tap

Tap dancing is unlike most other forms of dance in that a student can hear the improvement as well as see it. Tap Dance at Broadway Bound starts with the basics: Tap dancing terminology, correct body posture and progresses with more intricate steps based on ability. The whole body is taught not just the feet. Arms, body line, hands, foot turn out are all necessary for a good look and great sound. We don’t believe in noise. . . what’s important is proper improvement and execution.

Pre-Ballet/Jazz

These classes take into consideration the age and maturity of each student and broadens their physical and mental understanding of classical ballet. Particular emphasis is placed on the primary level of ballet both at the barre and when doing floor work. In addition, they are also introduced to the basics and differences of jazz dancing. More combinations are introduced and the music is of a more contemporary feeling.

Introduction to Dance

Our “Introduction To Dance” Program is specifically designed to provide children between three and six years of age with a strong foundation in dance and movement. It teaches the young dancer the basic elements of movement and dance: space and how to relate to it, both as an individual and as a member of a group; opposites and directions; some elementary positions of ballet. Integrated with these physical concepts are the intellectual concepts of self-awareness, creative expression, imagination, teamwork, and basic body/health awareness.

Hip Hop

With the advent of the : “So You Think You Can Dance” hit TV show, Hip Hop dancing has enjoyed a resurgence in the dance world. Because less “Ballet” technique is required, it has become a popular, yet difficult dance to master.  There are many “isolations” and “Popping” combinations that need to be learned in order to be good at it. You will really enjoy this class because it is fast paced, current and requires less Jazz or Ballet training.

Ages 8 to Adult

Jazz

There are many different styles of Jazz here at Broadway Bound, we not only cover all styles of Jazz, but having already performed on Broadway as performers, we understand that there are many basic techniques necessary to be a good Jazz dancer. Part of what’s important is not only knowing the basics, but also being able to incorporate one’s own “style” into the combination to the music. We do not want every student to be a robot when it comes to performing a routine. Students should learn correct turns, leaps, barre and floor stretching exercises, strength moves and be challenged enough to pick up dance combinations geared to their level of ability. All classes are geared more to the movements and steps of today’s music.

(Class length and price vary depending on level for Jazz)
