Ballet 

Ballet is a complex mixture of technique, coordination and.musicality, that is feeling and moving with the music   Since ballet is considered the foundation of artistic dance, it is invaluable for any serious dancer.  Combining proper alignment and body placement, seamless transitions through standard arm, leg and feet positions and astute sense of timing, it trains dancers to be clean, versatile performers.

 

Tap

 

Our tap program is a fun, exciting class that combines musicality, sound quality, correct body placement, and terminology.  Younger students will develop ear training and basic rhythms.  Advanced students are taught the integration of tap dance and music as it relates to improvisation and choreography.


Jazz


An upbeat class that is not to be missed! Jazz dancing is a form of dance that showcases a dancer's individual style and originality. Every jazz dancer interprets and executes moves and steps in their own way. Jazz dancing is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. To excel in jazz, dancers need a strong background in ballet as it encourages grace and balance.

 

Hip Hop


Very popular with all ages! 

Hip Hop is a blend of today's high-energy "street style" movement. Dance to funky popular music, learn the coolest moves, and the art of choreography and improvisation.    Everyone is capable of taking part and having fun! 

And once again this fall - Try a boys only hip hop class!!!


Lyrical


Lyrical is a type of dance that is a great form of creative expression.  When you watch a lyrical dance, you are watching a story that is being told through music and motion.  Dancers will work on graceful movements, creativity, expression of their inner emotions and musicality.  Lyrical dance is a combination of ballet, jazz and modern. Students enrolled in the Jazz/Lyrical class are strongly encouraged to study ballet.


Modern/Contemporary


Modern dance is a style that centers on a dancer's own interpretation, encouraging dancers to use their emotions and moods to design their own steps and routines. Contemporary dance is characterized by its versatility: contemporary can be danced to almost any style of music, or united with other dance forms to create new styles of movement. At the same time, the ease of movement promoted by contemporary dance technique allows experienced dancers to push new boundaries of body movement. Students must have previous ballet experience.

 

Acrobatics


Acrobatic movements are combined with dance steps as students learn the fundamentals of movement and timing with tumbling.  Younger students are introduced to basic tumbling skills including cartwheels, handstands, forward and backward rolls.  Older students learn more advanced floor tumbling skills.



MUSICAL THEATRE


Combines acting and dance techniques with lip-syncing.  Competitive only.

 

TRIPLE THREAT


A unique program that includes acting, vocal, and dance techniques.  This one and a half hour class is a must for students aspiring to act and sing onstage.  Learn about the “business” from real industry professionals.  “Triple Threats” are highly sought after in the musical theatre business and triple threat training is becoming the norm for performers today.  This is your chance to learn and shine!  There are opportunities to audition for our amazing song and dance competitive team!  And best of all, take part in a musical and perform it for friends and family.  Our 2011-2012 Triple Threat Class  performed Seussical at the Village Theatre in Waterdown for delighted friends and family.  The 2012-2013 triple threat class performed The Little Mermaid at Guy Brown Elementary School. And last year our triple threat class performed a full length production of Beauty and the Beast at Guy Brown Elementary School.  We are pleased to announce that our Triple Threat Class is so popular that enrollment has more than doubled. The 2014-2015 Triple Threat class will be performing Wizard of Oz - come join the fun!  For ages 9+

             LIVE DREAM DANCE  COMPETITIVE COMPANY
                                               
Our company is a group of serious, dedicated dancers who will take part in competitions and extra performances throughout the year.  It takes a lot of dedication and hard work on both the part of the dancer and the parent in order to be a part of our award winning company. 

Dancers should have previous dance experience, excellent attendance and attitude.  They must show dedication and respect to teachers, choreographers and other students at all times as they are a representative of the studio.  Our competitive team consists of Pee Wees who are ages 5-6, Minis who are ages 7-9, Juniors who are ages 8-10, Intermediates who are ages 10-12, and Seniors who are 13+.

Anyone who is interested in being a part of our Competitive Company for the 2013-2014 season will need to schedule a private lesson time to be assessed by the director.  This class is not an audition, but rather a way for the new director to assess student interest and ability levels, and to determine if a student is ready for company.  Live Dream Dance is still accepting dancers for our competitive team.  Call now to book an appointment.
