CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Breakdance is an energetic and often acrobatic style of dance that often incorporates intricate footwork and even pantomime. It's a great way to burn a lot of energy while learning about rhythm and increasing strength and flexibility. Dancers of all ages love learning to be b-boys and b-girls at DancEast! 

Ballet class will focus on the basics of Ballet technique both at the barre and with center floor exercises and combinations. This is a fun and inspiring class for a wide range of dancers. Some prior dance experience is recommended for dancers on the younger end of the age range. 

Pointe is the form of classical ballet in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet wearing pointe shoes. Enrollment in pointe class at DancEast requires prior approval by the studio owner, and it is only offered to dancers also enrolled in ballet class just prior. 

Tap dance transforms the feet into percussive instruments. The form of tap dance taught at DancEast is Rhythm, rather than Broadway, style. It is recommended that dancers on the younger end of the age range for this class first complete a Triple Threat class at DancEast before enrolling in Tap. 

Multi Genre class will be something different each week! Dancers will participate in a great series of warm-up stretches and strengthening activities followed by learning a fun combination in one of the four class genres - Ballet OR Contemporary, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop - each week.  

Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music using precise and highly formalized steps and gestures. Classical Ballet, which originated in Renaissance Italy and established its present form during the 19th century, is characterized by light, graceful and fluid movements.

Contemporary dance is the most current form of dance today, borrowing from Ballet, Modern and Jazz to create a uniquely 21st-century style of movement. Class at DancEast incorporates the choreographic aesthetic of each instructor with exciting and unique musical choices.

Modern dance, not to be confused with Contemporary dance, evolved during the late 19th/early 20th centuries as a means to move away from the classical movement of Ballet dance. In practice, it simultaneously borrows from and rejects the teachings of Ballet, incorporating such techniques as contract-and-release, emotion-based improvisation, use of gravity to enhance movement and pedestrian movement.  

Jazz dance has its roots in African and European dance traditions, but it is a uniquely American style that developed in conjunction with the rise of Jazz music. The class is fun and energetic, and it allows dancers to showcase their individual styles through unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. 

Hip Hop dance is a street-inspired style performed to hip-hop music and reflecting hip-hop culture. Each class includes an upbeat warm-up followed by urban dance choreography unique to each instructor's style.
