NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! This is a great time to get out of the house and get active! If you've never had tap shoes on your feet, you want to return to dancing, or you are a seasoned pro, this class is for you! Each week we will focus on learning different tap moves, learning musicality, timing, and rhythm. These steps will then be transitioned to across the floor, and then later choreography. In this class you will have a LOT of fun, and laugh lots - which is also working out! Modifications for each step are offered for every level participating and out main focus is to KEEP MOVING!

Acro (competitive)
Alyssa Landry
*Classes will be split up according to age, experience and ability*

Acrobatics or “Acro” is a combination of dance and gymnastics. Cirque du Soleil popularized this form of dance. It focuses on concentration, balance, flexibility and control. At Westland, we develop students’ flexibility and strength while teaching them acrobatic and gymnastic skills. Acro will develop skills such as handstands, elbow stands, chest stands, cartwheels, walkovers, handsprings and aerials in a fun and safe environment. To master an Acro trick, students must develop a solid foundation in strength and flexibility, thus emphasis is placed on extensive conditioning and stretching. When students are learning new tricks, the instructor utilizes professional spotting techniques which is necessary, to not only ensure student safety, but also to instil confidence in the students as they master their technique. We offer Acrobatic Arts training from levels 1-10 and Acrobatique training from levels Pre-junior to Advanced as well as Alixa Flexibility (contortion and flexibility training) from levels 1 and 2, all through fully certified Instructors.

*Students must be enrolled in another core competitive class (Ballet or Jazz) to enroll in Competitive Acro.*

Lyrical/Contemporary (competitive)
Victoria Wesolowsky
*Classes will be split up according to age, experience and ability*

Lyrical is a beautiful dance form that combines the techniques and movements of both jazz and ballet. In this form a dancer takes on the role of an actor and tells a story through technique and emotion. Dancers don’t express how they’re feeling with voice, but with facial expressions and body dynamics. This type of dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion as an artistic form of expression.
Contemporary Dance is a fusion of interpretive movement, incorporating ballet, jazz, lyrical, and modern technique. There are no limits for choreography and expression in a contemporary class. Emphasis is on moving in and out of traditional techniques while picking up on new, subtle movement challenges. Contemporary students an opportunity to explore their own style and tell a story through their movement.

*Due to the technical demands of these styles, these classes are only for students who are currently enrolled in Ballet for the 2020/2021 dance season*
