Our Dance Studio offers a large variety of dance classes for all skill levels. Our experienced instructors are passionate about helping each dancer achieve their highest potential, while also having as much fun as possible. Have a look at our class information below to find the one that best fits your needs.

INTRODUCTORY DANCE

These classes are geared toward our littlest of students. Children are encouraged to explore their imagination and creativity, all the while learning the fundamentals of dance terminology and technique. Everyone loves this class which is a combination of ballet, tap and tumbling. Classes are designed to give the students a well rounded taste of all three styles of dance.  Our amazing instructors make sure everyone gets individual attention while keeping the class collaborative.

BALLET & LRICAL

Ballet is a classical dance discipline that emphasizes flexibility, skeletal alignment, posture, strength, and artistry. During class dancers will learn proper ballet technique and basic dance principles necessary for all other dance forms. Ballet provides a core foundation for all dance styles. Thus, your child could use ballet as a springboard for jazz, contemporary, or hip hop. Or, he or she could continue in ballet to reach advanced performance levels.

Lyrical is a form of ballet which emphasizes creative movement associated with the meaning or lyrics of the music. The same principles and technique found in ballet are used in this unique form of dance. 

TAP

This structured class focuses on teaching tap technique while developing rhythm and timing. Dancers will be taught basic steps and vocabulary that will later be combined into more complex combinations or routines. They also learn how to create percussive sounds to the music’s rhythm.​ Ballet is required.

JAZZ

This is a high-energy class that focuses on isolations, kicks, & leaps and turns. Performance quality through proper jazz technique is emphasized. Dancers will be encouraged to use individual expression and develop their self-confidence. Ballet is required.

HIP HOP

Hip hop is a high-energy, entertaining dance style that’s as much about culture and attitude as it is about technique and skill. And let’s be honest—hip hop dance is just plain fun. In our hip hop dance classes, students gain confidence and coordination while they learn skills that are completely unique to this thrilling dance method.

ACRO/TUMBLING

Acro/Tumbling classes teaches students the floor portion of gymnastics and how to blend it seemlessly with dance. Walkovers, back handsprings, tucks and other aerial tricks are taught as the student is physically ready.

POINTE

At Dance Atlantic, we teach not only ballet technique, but also the terminology and etiquette behind this unforgettable dance form. At each pointe class, dancers take part in the following activities:

  • Barre exercises

  • Center floor work

  • Across-the-floor combinations

As they master ballet techniques, dancers become better aware of their bodies. They develop advanced posture, style, and expression. This class is only available by teacher invitation. 


COMPETITIVE DANCE

Our Competitive Team boasts numerous awards including Overall High Point Awards, Best Choreography Award, Dynamic Duo Award, and more! Team members are by teacher invitation only.
