Jazz/Ballet & Hip-Hop Dance
Our Most Popular Class in Elementary & Middle Schools! 5-6-7-8 Dance presents this dance combination class of three exciting styles including Jazz, Ballet and Hip-Hop! This is a great class for students who want to try different styles of dance. The ballet portion focuses on the basic ballet positions, terminology and movement. Students will learn a variety of ballet movements including balance, jumping, stretches and basic turns. The jazz portion of the class is fun way to learn about proper jazz dance technique, body awareness and muscle control while moving along to a variety of different music genres. In the hip-hop portion of the class students will learn choreographed and freestyle hip-hop dance movement giving them a chance to express their own style set to upbeat pop and hip-hop style music. Our version of hip-hop dance uses tasteful dance movement and age appropriate music. Set in a creative and encouraging environment, our class focuses on a proper warm-up, stretching, muscle control and dance terminology. Dance attire is totally optional. Classes are designed to accommodate a “come-as-you-are” group, though loose-fitting or athletic attire is best. Each 5-6-7-8 Dance session ends with a presentation to family and friends giving students a chance to present the different things they have learned during the session. All students will receive a Certificate of Participation.
