Class Descriptions

Ballet Technique (Dance Focus Program)

Ballet Technique is a class for aspiring dancers who wish to develop an accomplished understanding of dance movement.  Ballet technique classes are one hour to one and a half hours in length and meet once a week.  Technique classes are designed to be taken in addition to their regular ballet class, on a different day.   We feature a graduated level program of study based on Russian/European methodology in our approach to teaching, stressing precision, competence and elegance of movement.  All of our ballet technique instructors are highly trained in these methods.  Ballet technique classes do not perform in the annual recital.

Contemporary/Lyrical

A fusion of dance styles designed to be extaordinarily creative and expressive.  Ranging from athletic to theatrical to soft and beautiful, this type of dance is showcased weekly on “So You Think You Can Dance”.  Our contemporary/lyrical classes require an understanding of basic jazz and ballet terminology.

Jazz

Jazz is a high-energy form of dance set to popular music. The fundamentals of jazz involve body isolations, jumps, leaps, turns, lots of fun and exercise!

Dancers can begin jazz in 2nd grade, and Pre-Jazz in kindergarten.

Students are grouped by age and experience.  We use age-appropriate, popular music for each group.  Classes begin at 30 minutes per week, and are designed to be combined with ballet and/or tap back to back.

Experienced jazz dancers are invited to audition for our Dance Teams! Dance teams perform and compete different styles of jazz dancing each year.  Dancers must be in at least 3rd grade to audition.  See Dance Teams section for more information.

Pointe (Dance Focus Program)

“Pointe” class is performed wearing special pointe shoes and is for experienced ballet dancers only. Special pointe preparation classes are offered during the summer to prepare students for pointe work. Students are evaluated beginning at age 11, must complete at least 2 years of technical ballet technique training and demonstrate technical competence.

Our highly trained instructors guide each student on a special journey into the world of ballet with a program designed to take dancers to the pre-professional level if desired.

Dancers and parents are encouraged to schedule an appointment with one of our instructors to learn more about this special experience and it’s requirements.

Tap

Tap dance is performed wearing special “tap” shoes. Tap has fun names such as “Buffalo” and Maxi Ford”, and students learn the “real” tap terminology.  Students learn basic tap steps and put them together in exciting combinations using high-energy music. Tap is a special type of dance, which encourages development of musicality and promotes coordination, especially with the feet.  Great for soccer players!

Dancers can begin Tap at kindergarten age.  We recommend taking ballet with tap, but it is not required.

Kehl has a very strong tap program with exciting choreography and two award-winning performance tap teams, the Footlights and the Tel-Tones.  See the Dance Team section for more information.
