Foundations of Dance



Young dancers need a strong technical foundation on which to build. This class is designed to introduce the most fundamental exercises and vocabulary of modern and ballet. Additionally, students will learn the basics of Pilates, FloorBarre-Conditioning and Yoga. This class is suitable to students new to dance training or those who wish to learn the fundamentals of modern and ballet.

Modern and Ballet Technique



Classes will alternate daily between Modern and Ballet technique. Ballet classes begin with a 45 minute barre. These classes are designed to build on foundation classes. Sequences for Center and across the floor work are more complex and strenuous.




Improvisation and beginning composition bring out the creative side in any dancer and are fundamental to growth as an artist in the field of dance. Students will learn how to structure their impulses to create phrases and compositions.

Combo Class/Mixed Styles



Learn a variety of styles that begin with a proper warm-up to prepare for learning combinations. The purpose of the class is to push the dancer’s mind, on how to pick up choreography, musicality, and style. The class will consist of a warm up that will prepare the dancer for the upcoming combination. The warm up will be followed by a short across the floor sequence there after will jump into learning the combination. This class will give the dancer a joy of learning in a quick pace, and having fun while doing it.

Repertory for Youth Ensemble



Repertory for Youth Ensemble is taught by SPD Company Members. Students learn age and ability appropriate choreography from SPD’s award winning repertory. The class includes ensemble and small group work. Students prepare for performing in the SPD Dance in the Parks 2020 events.
