Class Descriptions:

Kinder Boogie

This dance class involves creative movement, imagination and a very positive introduction to the basics of dance. A classroom setting will promote socialization amongst the children while they have fun together embracing music and improving their coordination.

 

Mini Movers and Shakers
This class involves creative movement, imagination, and socialization. 30 minutes of fun! Students learn through games and play and explore the world of movement through music.  These students do not participate in the year end recital but instead enjoy a ‘last class’ presentation.

 

Let's Move!

Boys get to work it out with beat-pumping music, easy to follow moves and interactive fitness games designed just for them. They will get an outlet for their energy, a boost of confidence and an awesome workout! Helps build balance, strength, agility and fitness all while having FUN! 

 

Ballet

Open to ages 7-18, this class will follow the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) syllabus. Each class will include barre work, across the floor, and center combinations. The RAD curriculum is one of the world's most influential dance education tools. With these guidelines and the instructor’s personal influences, this class will be a strong asset for all dance forms studied at Harmony.

 

Jazz

Open to ages 7-18, this class will be drawing from the swing era of the 1940’s to the melting pot era seen today, the students will engage in a wide spectrum of techniques that blend the old with the new. The dancers will use these techniques while building a foundational understanding of a traditional class structure. 

 

Lyrical

 Open to ages 7-18, the dancers in this class will be able to use a blend of modern and ballet technique, while focusing on performance qualities such as expressing feeling and passion reflected by music and shown through movement. While being led by the instructor, the dancer will have an individualistic approach to how they tell their own story based on how the music makes them feel. This style will bring out the true performer inside of each dancer.

 

Technique

Mandatory for company members and open to all Harmony students, this class will enhance overall technical ability. Improving strength, balance, alignment, flexibility, and coordination, dancers will use this time to master their skills and learn new choreography. 

 

Baton Twirling

Open to ages 4-18, this class will be learning the basic foundation of Baton Twirling. Along with learning to twirl, our students will gain motor skills, and sharpen hand eye coordination. Baton twirling also gives the students the chance to work in a team setting and connect with others.

 

Acro

We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus. This program is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in five divisions of Acro Dance: Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering, and Tumbling. Simple thoughtful progressions take the dancer from log rolls and summersaults to the advanced tumbler tumbling effortlessly across the stage!

 

Leaps, Turns and Jumps

This class moves dancers beyond basic steps, developing more elaborate combinations, and implementing greater creative movement and strength. These classes focus on developing deeper stretching techniques for the whole body (legs, back, hips, feet, arms), while emphasizing heightened methods and sequences for turns, leaps, and jumps. This class pairs nicely with Jazz and will aid and suit many dancers and forms.

 

 

Pom Company

Harmony's competitive Pom company is a great opportunity for girls who exhibit a natural talent and drive, to train at a more intense level. The girls will be competing in Small Groups, & Large Groups. Company members participate in 2-4 competitions (depending on scheduling), perform in our year end show, and perform at local community events. 

 

Baton Company

The girls or boys have the opportunity to compete in Solos, Duets/Trios, & Small Groups depending on level. Company members participate in 2-4 competitions (depending on scheduling), perform in our year end show, and perform at local community events.
