Ballet technique is the practice of the specific principles in ballet movement. The focus is learning to correctly execute ballet tech to ensure strengthening the body and growing positively as a dancer. With its own vocabulary based on French language, it’s dance terminology is more than important to learn and understand. Being a highly technical form of dance, ballet puts great emphasis on the method and execution of each movement.
(bar work/center bar, body (muscle) composition, alignment and positioning, turns + leaps, english/french ballet terminology)
* Intermediate – Advanced * All ages
Jazz is a high energy and a boldly entertaining style of dance. It combines basic ballet terminology, strong jazz technique, and musical theatre’s bold performance expressions to produce a playful and upbeat dance genre. Sharp movements, body control and lengthening flexibility make for a feisty fun class!
(stretch and strength warm up, Jazz tech center + progressions, core and energy control, Jazz Funk combinations + choreography)
All ages / Intermediate – Advanced
This class combines the light and expressive components of lyrical, with the raw and powerful elements of contemporary. A ballet-jazz fusion is what softens lyrical movements, while contemporary allows dancers to follow their natural lines and instinctive energy. This combination of genres, along with its modern influence, presents dancers with the opportunity to tell a story for their audience.

This class takes 100% focus, drive and effort. A variety of general warm ups, sports movements, well known workouts, and muscle lengthening stretches make up the Stretch and Strength session. Its a class for anyone who is pushing for positive improvements, looking for a challenge, and ready to sweat!
Often known for my unconventional drive and creative ambition, my intense charisma has allowed me to build a passion into a lifestyle. My eagerness to compose and create, combined with my hope to constantly progress has allowed me to be the best Instructor I can be. Contributing to a dancers journey warms my heart. And while I was able to share a timeless and fulfilling art form, I am left with an understanding that although they are the student, they are also teaching me.
My passion for life is channeled into my work, with hopes of providing an environment where a dancer can discover and produce something that they are proud of. And after years of being a dance student, then an instructor, I have come to believe that presenting a place of support, sincerity, and productivity is essential to positive growth.
The idea of technique in my lessons, is finding the true status of our bodies current dance-based capabilities. If the dancer doesn’t honestly know, they wont correctly grow. I don’t ever hold an expectation of perfection, but rather the goals and focus of personal best and genuine effort. The hope I have when teaching choreography is for students to find a connection – creating opportunities to embrace and share their strengths and styles.
My overall objective when holding class is to have students walking in feeling interested, eager, and hopeful. Then during class feeling challenged, comfortable, and encouraged. And finally I want to have the same students who walked in, to walk out informed, proud, strong; As dancers.
