Ballet at Steps on Stage is taught as a foundation of technique and discipline for all dance styles.  It is highly recommended for all serious dance students to take one or more ballet classes a week to excel in technical execution.  Our ballet classes are focused around classical technique, building proper muscle mass, alignment and terminology.  Classes are structured appropriately starting with barre work, then moving to  center and across floor work, then closing with a respectful reverence.  Pointe is by recommendation of the ballet instructor.  A pre-pointe class will be provided as necessary.  Anyone interested in pointe must relay their interest to the studio directors and ballet instructors to insure the student is on the proper path to achieve the strength and technique to safely take Pointe.


Jazz:  Levels are split by Pinks, Violets, Emeralds and Royals

Ages 6-18:

Lyrical is an introduction to contemporary for the younger artist.  This class should be taken in addition to a technique class and will focus on artistry and musicality.  Lyrical is a form of dance that uses expression and movement to tell a story.  We like to call it poetry in motion.  Most lyrical dances are a combination of ballet, jazz and modern dance styles that showcase balance, flexibility and strength all while telling a story emotionally.  This is a great class for students to start developing their voice and individuality as a dancer.
