Lyrical/ Contemporary
Lyrical dance is a style of dance created by merging ballet, jazz and contemporary dance techniques.[1] Lyrical dancing is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements to express strong emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics in the chosen song.[2] Because lyrical dancing focuses on the expression of strong emotion, the style concentrates more on individual approach and expressiveness than the precision of the dancer's movements.[3] The emergent lyrical style has a relatively recent history and a genesis based on the coming together of ballet with rock/folk/pop/alternative music and a variety of jazz dance styles and modern dance.

Pre-Pointe/ Pointe
* Pointe technique 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. A dancer is said to be en pointe when the dancer's body is supported in this manner, and a fully extended vertical foot is said to be en pointe when touching the floor, even when not bearing weight. Pointe work is performed while wearing pointe shoes, which employ structural reinforcing to distribute the dancer's weight load throughout the foot, thus reducing the load on the toes enough to enable the dancer to support all body weight on fully vertical feet. ​Pre-Pointe: This class is dedicated to teaching pointe fundamentals to students of the appropriate age and technical ability; because of the risk of injury, students must be physically ready. One complete dance year of pre-pointe and a pointe evaluation is required before advancement to pointe class. The pointe evaluation allows teachers and students the opportunity to see where the student needs work in order to prepare for pointe. The evaluation focuses on legs (straightness and strength), feet (flexibility, strength, alignment, and shape), ankles (strength and straightness), and overall body alignment. ​Ballet 3: [Pre-Professional Track] Requires up to 5-6 yrs of dance training or prior approval of teacher. These students are on a advanced level of their ballet training. They have a vast concept of their ballet training. They are continuing their strengthening, enhancing their flexibility, and execution of movement. This is a challenge ballet class.​
