ADULT BALLET:  This one-hour technique class starts at the ballet barre and progresses to the centre for port de bras, adage and allegro.  Class is taught to a variety of music since music is such a strong influence in how we move as dancers.

 

ADULT JAZZ:  This class starts with a standing warm-up followed by floor work for stretching and conditioning exercises.  Combinations are taught to a variety of music so you can dance in a variety of jazz styles:  Musical Theatre, Eras like 20’2, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, Lyrical and Funk!  For Beginners/Advanced Beginners, this class is 45 minutes.

 

ADULT TAP:  The saying goes, “PAC TAP…..It’s Not The Shoes”!  Now don’t let this intimidate you!  Adult tap is taught in three levels, Beginner, Advanced Beginner and Intermediate.  More advanced adults are welcome to enroll in classes with our teens!  PAC TAP will vary between Musical Theatre (how you would dance in heels) and Rhythm Tap (how you would dance in flats).  Musical Theatre style tap is what you would see in “42nd St.” or “Anything Goes” where Rhythm Tap is more a hoofing’ style that you would see in the movie “Tap” or shows like “Tap Dogs” or “Shuffle Along”.  Both styles are so much fun!  The Intermediate Adult Tap class enjoys performing in our annual recital!
