Turns n Leaps
A form of theatrical dancing that can be traced as beginning in the 1900’s. It uses ballet technique, use of fall recovery, contraction, release, locomotor movements, movements that convey a message or tell a story, use of irregular meter, music, sounds, electronic music and contemporary music, use of multimedia and poetry. The dancer used bare feet or sandals.

Most professional ballet dancers are trained in modern, today choreographers combine ballet with modern technique for many of their works. Placement is upon approval of the director.


Musical Theater
Each class will focus on the kind of dancing used in theatrical staging, acting basics, and “character acting” through dance. Dancers will learn pieces of several “mini-musicals” centering on show tunes from America’s best-loved musicals, including “Cats,” West Side Story,” and “Oliver.”

Dancers will also learn theater terminology as well as the history of Broadway and musical theater in America.

Dancers in these classes also need training in Ballet and Jazz. Placement is upon approval of the director.
