Classes

At Studio J…

  • We make dance and fitness affordable and fun!
  • We believe that learning to dance in a healthy, creative, nurturing environment expands imaginations, builds self-esteem, promotes self-discipline and establishes a sense of teamwork and cooperation. Most of all, we will give our students love, praise and encouragement to be their best.
  • We value every teacher’s artistic creativity. Students have an opportunity to experience a variety of teachers with different styles at one studio!
  • Our passion-driven teachers are continuously learning and growing. They stay current and continue to perfect their art.
  • We believe that ‘the world is our stage’ and we will seek every opportunity to expose our students and teachers by continuously developing choreography and performing at various community events. Doing this throughout the year lessens the anxiety and stress of a one-time recital as well as offers more opportunities to entertain a crowd, build poise and confidence.
  • In December, we have a Holiday showcase & party where every class perform in our ‘mini-recital’.
  • Recital time will be ‘stress-free’ and is not mandatory.
  • The season runs from September to May.

Class Descriptions

Leap ‘N Learn (Ages 1.5-3): Physical space and how we relate to it as an individual and a group member, locomotor and non-locomotor movements, musical awareness, opposites, directions, and pathways self-awareness, teamwork, creative expression, imagination, basic body and health awareness

Pre-ballet (Ages 3.5-5): children are taught basic warm-up and stretch exercises to instill the idea of getting the body ready for dance. These fun routines are followed by very simple early ballet movements taught to music in a playful environment. Children learn to follow instructions, work with others in the group, and enjoy simple but early effective ballet practice.

Tap (Ages 3.5+): the most original form of American dance, where the participant acts as both dancer and musician. An audible form of dance, tap offers instant rewards… you hear the sounds you create from day one!

Jazz/Contemporary (Ages 6+): a form of dance that emphasizes strength and flexibility of the body integrated with musicality

Ballet (Ages 6+): ballet is an art form created by the movement of the human body. It can tell a story or express a thought or emotion. Ballet can be magical, exciting, provoking or disturbing

Gymnastics (Ages 6+): builds the foundations of strength and precision required for a successful and fulfilling practice of gymnastics. Basic moves and stretches are drilled to develop the skills needed for more complex routines while the student simultaneously learns physical control and mental focus.

Hip Hop (Ages 6+): a mix class where students learn various hip hop dance movements in a fun-filled and vibrant environment. It offers a new set of combinations and routines every time
