Class Descriptions

Pre-Ballet

Introduction to ballet fundamentals and terminology.  Focuses on motor skills development and rhythm. Creative Movement and props are also a part of this fun class, aiding our youngest dancers in learning classical technique while exploring their creativity.  Students must be fully potty-trained. 

 

Ballet

Ballet offers a solid foundation and technique, as well as grace, flexibility, and discipline to dancers of all age, level, and style. Proper ballet vocabulary, along with technique, alignment, endurance are explored in this class. 

Jazz

Jazz is a fast-paced and high energy dance which uses the foundations of ballet to create dynamic movement.  Multiple styles of Jazz will be taught to expose students to the ever changing trends in dance.  Students enrolled in Jazz must also take 1 ballet class.  

Lyrical/Contemporary

Lyrical is a fusion of ballet and modern dance techniques where the dancer uses interpretive movements to convey the lyrics of the music through dance.  Other modern and contemporary dance styles will also be introduced in this class.

Students enrolled in Lyrical and Contemporary must also enroll in 1 ballet class. 

Hip Hop

Hip Hip is a popular and funky urban style of dance using beats, accents, and isolations to popular music.

Salsa

Salsa is the unique blending of traditional Latin dance steps with the freedom and turning actions of Swing and Hustle dancing. Salsa uses a fusion of an Afro-Caribbean beat with enhanced jazz textures to create a high-energy and social form of Latin dance. 

PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique) 

Progressing Ballet Technique is an innovative program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical dance.  PBT is a non-traditional technique class using the aid of props such as fitness balls and yoga mats.  PBT is non-recital class open to all students age 8+.  La Luna is not currently offering PBT this season.
