Does your child have a passion for dance? This is the class for them! In this encouraging environment, students expand their dance education through technique instruction, group work that focuses on team building skills, and performance experience that helps build self-confidence.

Performance Ensemble focuses on three styles of dance - Ballet, Jazz and Tap. Time dedicated to ballet will improve posture, balance and grace. During the jazz section of class, dancers will move to current and classical music while exploring many different styles of jazz: funk, Broadway, and of course hip-hop! Tap work will concentrate on rhythmic tap exercises and center floor patterns with a a focus on clarity, speed, style and terminology.

Performance Ensemble Dancers will have a blast as they challenge their abilities, gain confidence and get a great dance workout in this 90 minute non- competitive class. This class participates in optional community performances and three routines in the Recital including our featured Ensemble production routine.
