Ballet and Pointe

Ballet is the foundation of all dance genres; therefore, we incorporate the fundamental elements of all dance forms into the class. At Prodigy Dance Company, we suggest that all students attend at least one ballet class a week to help better the technique of each individual student. The primary objective in ballet is to develop correct technique, alignment, musicality, strength, proper placement, discipline and grace. Our ballet program caters to beginners through the professional level.

Contemporary

Contemporary is a dance genre that focuses on choreography and movement, portraying one’s inner feelings. It allows our dancers to experience self-expression, awareness, and confidence, through improvisational techniques. The dancers will learn off-vertical alignment, balance, strength and how to retain choreography in a short period of time. Contemporary is one of the most popular dance forms in the country today. Our contemporary program caters to intermediate/advanced dancers through the professional level.

Lyrical dance combines elements of ballet, jazz, and contemporary techniques. Lyrical helps the dancers connect with their emotions, creating a more mature dancer. PDC will teach the students body control, alignment, fluidity, flexibility, technique, and choreography. Our lyrical program caters to beginners through the pre-professional level.

Hip-Hop

Hip Hop has become one of the most popular dance styles in recent times. Our hip-hop program incorporates foundational forms of street dancing. This is a high-energy style of dance that pushes dancers to expand their retention of choreography, and understand bodylines and isolation techniques that give hip-hop its signature style.

Stretch and Strength

Stretch and Strength classes focus on flexibility of all limbs of the body. In this class, dancers learn how to lengthen their legs, arms and feet, creating beautiful bodylines. It will increase the individual dancers’ turnout, flexibility, and arm placements. Our Stretch and Strength class caters to beginners through the professional level.

Tap

Tap classes at PDC are designed to develop rhythm and timing with the heel and the toe, while increasing the students’ tap technique/footwork. Instead of relying entirely on the footwork, PDC uniquely combines other dance genres to help give this form more life. This class will teach students musicality, balance, performance, and how to use their feet as musical instruments. Our tap program caters to beginners through the professional level.

(Ages 3-5 years)

The primary objective in ballet is to develop correct technique, alignment, musicality, strength, proper placement, discipline and grace. Our ballet program caters to beginners through the professional level.

Our levels are categorized as Level 1, 2 and 3, below is the criteria for each Level regarding technique. As we know every dancer is different, each dancer will be assessed by the instructor of the class to ensure that they are in the correct level.  To help our dancers to succeed, we are implementing a new rule. If you wish to progress as a dancer, you must enroll in a ballet class of your skill level. Any style your dancer wishes to sign up for will be based on his/her ballet skill level.

 

Example:

A dancer registered in ballet 1, will be placed in jazz 1, lyrical 1, etc. A dancer registered in ballet 2, will be placed in a jazz 2 or jazz 1, depending on their skill level in that style. If you prefer not to take ballet, you will be placed in level 1 for all styles.


*Keep in mind students will stay in a level for 2-3 years depending on how many classes they take weekly.
