Primary Musical Theatre Jazz
This class is great for beginners or those who've taken jazz or musical theatre jazz before.

Jazz dance has its roots in African dance and arose in America in the early twentieth century in its first form as African American social dances. While there are many styles of jazz dance, from afro-jazz, to classic jazz, to commercial jazz, there are several cornerstones of the technique. These pillars include its articulated torso, groundedness, broken lines, rhythmicality and maintaining the "aesthetic of the cool."

Musical Theatre Jazz is a form of theatrical dancing that combines the songs of Broadway musicals with the movement of classic jazz styles. This high-energy class will prepare any dancer for the bright lights of Broadway!

Youth 1&2 Contemporary Modern
This class is great for students new to contemporary or modern or those with some experience.

Our Contemporary Modern class will draw from both the Contemporary and Modern dance tradition, which themselves draw from or are a reaction to the dance traditions before them.

Modern dance sprung out of the late 19th century in the United States and Germany as a direct response to the formal movements of ballet. While modern still relies heavily on ballet, it allows for more freedom of movement. It is based in improvisation, partner work, floor work, use of momentum, the principles of fall and recovery, and many other forms of dance.

Contemporary dance is a newer dynamic genre that incorporates elements from ballet, modern, and jazz, as well as other non-Western styles. It emerged in the mid-twentieth century and was pioneered by choreographer Merce Cunningham. It has become a very popular genre in the US and Europe and is now a main genre among professional dancers and companies.

All college dance major programs require modern dance along with ballet. It is strongly encouraged for serious dancers of the IDA.

Adult Int/Adv Ballet
This class is for adults who have several years of ballet experience.

Ballet originated from court dances of the 15th century. Through years of adaptations, it has become the concert dance of codified steps we know today and serves as a good backbone for many other forms of dance. It promotes and requires strong discipline, precise technique, posture and control. It is highly recommended for all IDA students. Dancers typically begin class at the barre to work on stability and control then work their way to the center of the floor. Amongst the major ballet techniques, the IDA uses RAD and Vaganova styles into its lesson plans, but is mainly influenced by the Cecchetti Method.

Youth 1&2 Hip-Hop
This class is great for kids who are new to hip-hop or who have taken a hip-hop class before.

Hip-hop dance emerged as a natural accompaniment to hip-hop music. Hip-hop has its basis in street performance and jazz dance but has its own distinct form that includes free-style, locking, popping, and breaking. Confidence, physical strength, and musicality are benefits seen in those who participate in hip-hop.
