Dance Classes in Grand Junction

We transform you from an amateur dancer to a floor breaker.

Pre-Ballet

This form of dance is designed for dancers ages 3 to 4. We teach children the basic ballet steps, play movement games, and work on their gross motor skills.

Ballet and Pointe

Dancers are taught the Cecchetti technique (Italian school). We introduce them to other styles as well.

Jazz

Jazz is a blend of Luigi, Giordano, Hatchett, Tremaine. To learn this form of dance, you need to incorporate many turns and leaps.

Competition/Performance

Designed for the exceptionally motivated student whose extra-curricular priority is dance.

Lyrical/Contemporary

This is a style of dance that incorporates either or both ballet and jazz technique, interpreting the lyrics of a song through movement.

Tap

This form of dance is excellent for developing rhythm and coordination. We teach our dancers how to articulate the feet.

Hip Hop

Students will be taught street dance styles, such as break dancing, animation, and popping in a fun and exciting environment.

This incorporates balance, strength, flexibility, and other basic technical fundamentals, and it is for those who want to learn or are interested in pursuing school dance teams or who just want to have fun!
