Ballet

Our ballet program draws upon both traditional classic methods of training as well as incorporating modern approaches to ballet education. Each consecutive year, the number of technique classes increases as the skill and the ability of the student progresses.

Elementary Level Ballet

Students are instructed in proper stretching, primary positions, port de bras, fundamental movements across the floor, and classroom etiquette.

Intermediate & Advanced Level Ballet

Students train in classical technique as well as classical variations classes. Pointe and partnering are integrated into class depending on dancer age and level. Supplemental training in Pilates, Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT), GYROKINESIS®, and nutrition round out this high-standard training program.

Jazz

Jazz dance is a fusion genre, incorporating elements from Broadway, pop music, and Modern dance. Movement is characterized by sharp lines, versatile movement, and stylish characters. Dancers work on strengthening, stretching, increasingly complex movement combinations across the floor, jumps, and turns. Dances are often set to recognizable, upbeat music.

Hip Hop

Hip hop dance originated in street culture alongside hip hop music and made its way to more commercial dance platforms. Hip hop is characterized by grooves, rhythmic movement, pops, breaking, and use of different textures. Dancers work on their musicality skills while having the freedom to make each move their own. Students will be taught instructor choreography and also be encouraged to develop their own “freestyle” dances.

Lyrical

Lyrical is primarily focused on combining the many technical elements of classical ballet with the freedom and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary, and modern dance. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle, and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement. Improvisation studies are often included alongside lyrical studies.

Musical Theatre

Musical theater will develop and combine musical, acting, stage presence, and dance skills. A typical class includes jazz technique, vocal technique, and acting exercises. The performers will learn excerpts from various musicals and are invited to perform them at our winter and June showcases.

Tap

Tap dance is a type of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Tap shoes are specially designed with a metal "tap" on the heel and toe. Classes are taught to upbeat, rhythmic music. Students learn to count the beat, execute tap combinations, and coordinate intricate foot and arm movements as appropriate for each level.

 

Saundra Woods

Ballroom Instructor

Saundra started acting, singing, and dancing in 1975 as a young teen. A native of Denver, she earned her B.A. in theater arts with dance and psychology minor from the University of Northern Colorado. There she studied jazz, tap, ballet, and modern dance; Greek theater, Shakespeare, musical theater, drama, comedy, and all aspects of theatrical production.

 

Saundra had the great honor of working with Debbie Reynolds and Tom Bosley during filming in Denver, and trained and worked for Fred Astaire Studios in all forms of Ballroom, Latin, Swing and couples dance. After her graduate degree in Psychology and singing with the Colorado Mormon Chorale for seven years, Saundra moved to California in 2002 and was blessed with the most important “role” of her life as a mother. Saundra enjoys teaching all forms of dance, vocals, acting, musical theater and Ballroom, Latin and Swing dance to kids from six to 96 as well as specializing in wedding choreography for the couple's first dance and other members of the wedding party.
