CLASS GENRES

Ballet

Ballet is the basis and foundation of all dance forms. Students wishing to excel in any other programs should have a strong ballet foundation. Ballet training provides dancers with the opportunity to develop grace, poise, discipline, self confidence, and body awareness. 

Acro

Acro at SS follows the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus for training our students. Acro is a nonperforming, technique-based program. All Acro students will train extensively on their strength and flexibility to build a strong foundation to achieve acrobatic skills. Acrobatic Arts has developed an amazing program to bring gymnastics and contortion elements into the dance world. 

 

All Acro classes are technique only with no performance. Pre Competitive and Competitive Acro is only available for dancers with certain required skills. Any dancer in Pre Comp or Competitive Acro also needs to be in an approved jazz class.

Lyrical/Contemporary

These are choreography based classes focusing on story telling, performance, innovative lifts, and teamwork. These classes pull technique from Ballet and Jazz. 

Jazz

Jazz includes an energetic warmup, stretching, technical foundations, jumps, kicks, and turns. Jazz choreography can come from many forms of inspiration and can vary from Broadway style to Jazz Funk to contemporary Jazz. Jazz classes are fast paced and high energy.

Tap

SS follows the Al Gilbert syllabus for Tap Technique. Tap focuses on intricate rhythms, exciting choreography, musicality, and showmanship. Tap classes may participate in Tap Exams if the instructor thinks they are ready.

Hip Hop is an energetic class that teaches skills involving diverse styles and trends. Our instructors will focus on the proper techniques that make up Hip Hop dance and provide innovative choreography that will please anyone looking for a challenge.
Hip Hop has really opened up dance to a world stage and has bridged the gap between many styles. Hip Hop is ever-changing and exciting to watch and perform.
