Classes

JR Dance offers an extensive range of dance classes for all from tiny tots to adults.

Ballet.

Throw on some tights and point those toes.
Ballet as most of us know it is a highly technical
dance usually performed to classical music,
though many ballet schools are branching
out into more modern music. It is one of the most
graceful and delicate styles of dance, often
choreographed to include miming or acting.
Ballet will help you to develop mind and
body coordination, train your ear for rhythm
and improve your posture.

Modern.

Throw away the rule book and get ready to
express yourself. Modern dance rejects the
structured discipline of ballet, and focuses
instead on devising new movements and steps,
making it perfect for those who like to rebel
against tradition. Great for giving the whole
body a thorough workout, this dance also allows
you to unleash your creative side, meaning that
you get to exercise your imagination as
well as your body.

Contemporary.

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive
dance that combines elements of several dance
genres including modern, jazz ,lyrical and
classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to
connect the mind and the body through fluid
dance movements. Contemporary dance stresses
versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict,
structured nature of ballet. Contemporary
dancers focus on floor-work, using gravity to
pull them down to the floor.
