In general, the FX3 level classes are great for beginners (age 11-18), and the FX2 classes are for more advanced training. You are welcome to start out in one level and shift for a faster or slower paced class. If your dancer is seeking additional performance opportunities, and a team experience, they should consider the FX2 and FX3 Performance Companies.

More advanced tappers will be given rhythmic challenges, advanced tap tricks, and fast-paced choreography.  Tap shoes required.

HIP-HOP

Warm-up, Hip-Hop isolations and weekly combinations with a double dose of abs, legs, arms, and cardio- its the whole package!

JUST FOR BEGINNERS JAZZ

New-to-jazz dancers will learn the basics of jazz dance and technique in a fun and encouraging environment. Jazz Dance will increase flexibility, core strength and balance as well as musicality. An outgrowth of ballet's fusion with contemporary music, jazz dance often uses popular radio music to inspire movement that is similar to both theater and street dancing. Get ready for kicks, turns, tricks and fun! Soft-soled jazz shoes required.

INT-ADV JAZZ 

Intermediate and Advanced Jazz are for dancers who are ready to enhance their jazz dance vocabulary and ability. This class will be tailored to the individual dancer's needs and address technique, turns, leaps, tricks and Dancefx style. Dancers should have prior knowledge of basic jazz dance and be able to do a double pirouette. It is a great pairing with Intermediate and Advanced Contemporary if you desire more choreography, combos, and dance time.

LYRICAL/CONTEMPORARY

An exploration of music and movement with choreography, technique, improvisation, and lyrical expression in an environment that allows dancers to enjoy the unique art of dance. Feel good songs & movement.

JUST FOR BEGINNERS CONTEMPORARY DANCE

Now coming to a public spotlight in FOX's So, You Think You Can Dance, Contemporary Dance is a feel-good, self-expression based movement to often slower modern songs. Though Contemporary Dance places the choreographer in total control, the dancer is able to shape the movement to suit their feelings at that moment. Brought to public popularity by Mia Michaels, Contemporary Dance gives you a moment in your day to relax, move and clear your head. This beginners class is taught at an easy going pace and will be tailored to the participants in the class. Dancers will work on increasing balance, agility, stretch and strength.

INT/ADV/PRO CONTEMPORARY

Now coming to a public spotlight in FOX's So, You Think You Can Dance, Contemporary Dance is a feel-good, self expression based movement to often slower modern songs. Dancers should have a basic knowledge of ballet technique and desire a quicker paced, choreography based class. Full warm up with technique training exercises, across the floor and a focus on the weekly combos, it will reignite your love of dance. For a technique building class pairing, take with Int or Adv Jazz.

LEAPS AND TURNS

Leaps and Turns will give you a one-on-one experience in this group class. Enhance your jump height, precision and spectrum while perfecting and learning classic and trendy turns and turn combos. Just watching Stephanie will give you a new appreciation for excellent leaps and turns- and you could be next! This is an Open Level class, all levels are welcome and will be addressed.

HEELS

"Heels" is an amazing class, great for women to learn how to be comfortable in their own skin, gain confidence in their own sexy, and completely transform their bodies with cardio and workouts. Bring your heels!!! 

E'mote

E'mote is its own technique designed to give all dancers trained in numerous styles a place to be uninhibited, free, and unfiltered in their movement.  In an art form where we are trained in exquisite technique and expected to execute with precision​, we tend to lose our voice​.  We don’t know how to move our own bodies when the music comes on, without choreography given. E’Mote creates a safe, non-judging place for dancers to discover themselves as movers. It incorporates improvisational exercises, an across-the-floor “get off of your center” warm-up, and choreography designed to be interpreted differently from the choreographer.
