( Royal Academy of Dance) method. Full examination are offered at Spiral Dance. Our classes for ballet are offered from the pre-school age up to our senior levels.

JAZZ

This is a very upbeat, high-energy class that uses pop music favourites from the 1970’s to present. Sharp, direct, funky, and strong is the best way to describe this movement style. A vigorous warm-up with lots of isometrics, isolations, and stretching starts this class rolling. Fundamental dance technique improves alignment, co-ordination, and strength to accomplish the dance steps learned across the floor and in the combinations. Various turns and jumps are taught as a part of the jazz curriculum.

Creative movement with influences from all styles of dance. Lots of exploration with levels and floor work. Music selections are from both pop and alternative genres.

TAP

I’ve got rhythm! Tap requires the use of fine motor skills in the feet, plus co-ordination and rhythm. Understanding of music beats and how they break down from whole notes to half notes, quarter notes, and eighth notes is an integral part of the learning process in tap. The fun challenge is getting your feet to relate to these musical dynamics while learning the steps. Before you know it, your feet will be the musical accompaniment. Due to the extreme dexterity required to successfully do tap we do not start students until they are 6 years old.

HIP HOP

 This style of dance has its roots based in street break dancing.It incorporates lots of footwork and change of directions, plus body isolations including locking and popping techniques. It is definitely all about personal style. The more bounce and sway, the better you can get the groove. It is fun, athletic, and a great cardio work out. Pop R & B and Hip-Hop music is used in the class. Our teachers are very careful to screen their music for appropriate language. Due to the more developmentally mature dance steps involved we start students in hip hop no younger than 7 years old.
