TAP, JAZZ, & HIP HOP CLASSES
at The Peggy Bergman Park City Campus

 

Jazz  Classes | The jazz program includes instruction in classical jazz, as well as lyrical and contemporary. Classical jazz is grounded in basic ballet technique; it has its own unique and specific movement language and vocabulary. The music and movement can range from energetic and vibrant to soft and soulful. Lyrical contemporary is an interpretative form of jazz that provides a connection between ballet, modern and jazz. The focus is not only on the technique, but also on the artistry of the movement. Dancers are encouraged to express feelings, ideas and emotions through movement.

Tap Classes | Tap is an integral part of an expanded dance curriculum. Tap is beneficial in many ways, including increasing cardiovascular fitness, strength, flexibility and coordination. Tap builds strength in the legs and feet as well as increasing flexibility in the hips, knees and ankles. Tap also enhances cognitive abilities. To become proficient, dancers must develop muscle memory and mental acuity. Tap develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. Best of all…tap is just plain fun!

Hip Hop Classes | Hip Hop is a dynamic form of dance that is continually being shaped by new music, rhythms, and by the dancers themselves. Come learn the latest moves to the latest music!
