Acro/Tumbling: incorporates elements of both jazz and acrobatics instruction focusing on flexibility, tumbling, strength, and technique with an upbeat rhythm-based style.
Ballet: focuses on the foundations of proper body alignment, technique, and vocabulary. In this class dancers develop flexibility, coordination, and confidence. 
Combo: introduces rhythm and musicality, elementary ballet and tap skills, weight shifting, and imaginative movements referencing animals and nature.
Contemporary: is a fusion of ballet, modern, and jazz technique that incorporates artistry and improvisation to create unconventional shapes, dynamics, and musicality.
Hip-hop: focuses on the popular urban style of dance. Class work consists of a cardio and strength building warm-up, stretching and developing a vocabulary of steps and combinations.
Jazz: incorporates foundations of proper body alignment, technique, flexibility and classic jazz dance vocabulary with an upbeat rhythm-based style.
Lyrical: is a style that builds upon a foundation of classical ballet technique with an emphasis on finding freedom in the movement.  Dancers focus on understanding the dynamics and initiation of the movement along with a sense of breath, musicality, and connection to a story.
Modern: will incorporate many of the foundations of modern dance technique, including suspension and release, fall and recovery, the use of momentum and connecting breath with movement. Dancers will explore new ways of moving in combinations, floor work and partnering, and also in various methods of improvisation.
Pointe: is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet. Pointe work is performed while wearing pointe shoes. A dancer should never work in pointe shoes until their teacher has told them they are ready to do so, pre-pointe class is taken in ballet slippers until the dancer has developed the strength and muscles necessary to go en pointe.
Tap: combines rhythm and coordination to make music with the feet and body. Students will learn the basics of tap technique and musicality.
