Tiny's Combo Class
Tiny's Combo class is a perfect opportunity to introduce students to a wide variety of dance styles. It gives our dancers a foundation in a variety of dance techniques. Our combo classes are full of imaginative constructive play. They fly like butterflies, stretch like growing flowers, leap across imaginary mud puddles, float with princess crowns, turn like the wind, and so much more! We believe when dancers develop a love for dance, they grow and develop in amazing ways! We feel success when our tiny dancers say, "I love coming to dance!"
The Combo class is a mix of Jazz, Lyrical, and Tap. Students are introduced to the basics of each dance style and learn routines in class from each of the genres. The combo class is a perfect fit for dancers who want to grow and develop in dance and have fun learning new things each week.
Jazz dance is combination of technique, style, and presentation. Our classes emphasize musicality, stylization, body alignment, rhythm, and performance. Students will learn a variety of leaps and turns. Dancers are taught how to understand choreography quickly and connect steps and skills together to upbeat tempo music. It is one of our most popular styles of dance.
Our ballet technique class teaches dancers disciplined dance technique. It is perfect for any dancer who would like to improve their turnout, muscle control, turns, leaps, and flexibility. It is a "building blocks" class to help dancers establish a solid dance foundation. If you would like to take your dance to the next level then add this class to your current schedule. It will be so helpful!
Hip Hop is increasing in popularity and we are excited to offer classes this year! Our classes are studio hip hop-meaning we teach clean, classy, and organized routines...with plenty of funk! Students will learn how to isolate and control specific body parts, quickly contract and release muscles to the beat, "lock" their body in set positions, and freestyle break dance and improvise with flips and tricks to music. Hip Hop classes are a ton of fun!
Our tumbling classes cover basic muscle building and body control exercises like back bends and hand stands, and forward rolls. As skill advances students will learn back and front walkovers, back and front handsprings, ariels, back tucks, and layouts. We have multiple instructions in each class to allow for personalized attention and skill building. Advanced tumblers and beginning tumblers are able to progress!
Tumbling is a great skill for students lo oking to try out for school cheer and drill teams. We will help prepare them for auditions!
