For over 15 years, Eagles Landing Dance Center have been providing educational and community programs to help enrich children with the art of dance. We hope that you and your class will be among those whose learning experiences have been enlightened and enriched through the power of dance this year!
These classes incorporate all elements of classical ballet (including all vocabularly and definitions), with a particular focus on expanding flexibility, exemplifying grace and developing strong coordination through accute balance and control, proper arm and feet placement, directional changes, jumps and weight transfer. Includes barre, center and across the floor choreography.
The Horton Technique emphasizes a whole body, anatomical approach to dance that includes flexibility, strength, coordination and body and spatial awareness to enable unrestricted, dramatic freedom of expression.
Jazz is a lively dance style that relies heavily on originality and improvisation. This style often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions. Jazz dance has its roots in African traditions kept alive by slaves brought to the U.S.
Contemporary combines the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance
Hip-hop emerged from the streets of New York in the 1970s in the city's African-American and Puerto Rican communities at the same time as rap and DJing. Breakdancing—with its popping, locking, and athletic floor movements—is perhaps the earliest form of hip-hop dance.
Like jazz dancing, tap evolved from the African dance traditions preserved by slaves in the U.S. In this exciting dance form, dancers wear special shoes equipped with metal taps. Tap dancers use their feet like drums to create rhythmic patterns and timely beats.
