Graduated Dance Classes

-THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION for 2018-2019 DANCE-

We are in the process of launching our new website, so this one looks a little sparse right now! All of the same great classes are happening at 171 beginning September, and the links below will provide all you need to know to get signed-up. We'll be registering you the old fashioned way for a little while before the new site content is complete.

Welcome New Students: Welcome! We love new dancers of all experience levels! E-mail us at info@171cedarts.org to let us know your previous dance experience and age. No experience is okay! We will use this info for placement in an appropriate level class. If you aren't sure then you can audit one or two classes to find the best fit.

Ballet Dance Classes

 (Graduated Dance )
Ballet is a course in classical dance technique. Emphasis is on alignment and centering. Each class begins with exercises at the barre where basic positions and vocabulary are mastered. The class proceeds to center floor work where the dancer executes more difficult patterns in training. Pointe is a position in which the body is balanced on the extreme tip of the toe. Classes in pointe are offered only to advanced students with permission from the instructor.

Tap Dance Classes

 (Graduated Dance)
The rhythm and movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels and toes of a dancerís shoes, transforms the dancer into a percussive musician. Tap dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms and beats not only in music but in their own bodies, focusing on footwork and rhythm. Historically, Tap Dance is associated with Jazz music, but it also includes styles that are based in musical theater.
