The "Juniors"

Once the basics are covered with this group (etiquette, format, dance basics), we will really get them dancing! We don’t believe in “watering down” the choreography at all. These kids will be learning much the same type of choreography that our adults learn over at Vega Dance+Lab. After all, many young dancers aspire to go there and take class but are too young. So now, they get the same level of choreography, but taught to them in a more age-appropriate and level-specific way. We are excited to cultivate them into stronger dancers and show beginners the beauty of dance and the endurance and discipline necessary to achieve success. We also want these values to carry through to other aspects of your young dancer’s life.

Classes

Hip Hop (10-14)

Mondays/Wednesdays 4p-5p

Boys and girls both will enjoy learning hip hop from some of Vega’s best choreographers, and dancing to their favorite music. We will break down the choreography, clean their movements up, work on style and hip hop flavor, as well focus on positivity. Dancers will be encouraged (expected) to clap and cheer for their classmates and help each other out in team work sessions. Sometimes break dance exercises will be incorporated into the warm-up and conditioning at the beginning of class.

Jazz

Tuesdays 4p-5p

Jazz includes many styles of technical dance, from edgy and contemporary, to Broadway musical theater. It’s stylized, and the dancers will be encouraged to find their body awareness and personal expression. Classes will consist of conditioning exercises, warm-up, technique exercises across the floor and learning choreography that  is level-specific.

Lyrical/Contemporary

Thurdays 4p-5p

There is often some confusion about what is Lyrical, vs. Contemporary. For the sake of mutual understanding, here at Rise, they are basically the same. Sometimes the choreography will lean to the emotional expression of the lyrics in the song (lyrical) and utilize the technique-based aspects of ballet, jazz and modern. The students will be included in a discussion about the meaning of the music, and what the theme is for their movement that day. This style pushes the dancer to explore their feelings and demonstrate them while dancing. Here in the older age group, the students will be asked to relate to the choreography by drawing upon their own experiences in some way. This will encourage growth and emotional strength as a dancer. Taking jazz in conjunction with this class is suggested, but not necessary.
