Acro is a unique dance style combining tumbling and dance which develops great flexibility and strength to achieve balances, lifts, bends and splits.
Focusing on pure technique, ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. Dancers will move through a series of exercises beginning at the barre then moving to the center and performing combinations including balancing exercises, turns, leaps, and jumps. Ballet develops the dancer’s alignment, balance, flexibility, grace, and poise.
Ballet for Babies:
Your child’s first dance class! Filled with music, playful interaction and dance, this class is designed for our youngest dancers! Creative Movement with mom (or dad too!). Get ready to wiggle, jump and move to music, props and fun!
A form of dance that began as a rebellion to ballet, shedding tight clothing and ballet slippers, modern dance is the purest form of dance as an art. Dancers learn basic ballet principles with an emphasis on style and dance in bare feet. Improvisation is used as a means to let the students explore their own creativity as a dancer. Students dance to a wide range of musical forms, usually without lyrics.
Designed for the young dancer, creative movement incorporates props, games music and fun to encourage students to think creatively in addition to learning basic ballet technique. Students will go through a series of stretches, barre work, across the floor steps, and center floor activities. Students not yet potty trained will need a caregiver to stay on the premises for the duration of the class.

Leotards, tights, and hair pulled back are encouraged but not mandatory for studio classes. Mostly, we want students to be excited and comfortable in what they are wearing. We ask that clothes are not excessively baggy and students wear true ballet shoes and not the slippers that are often sold in department stores. This is for the safety of our dancers. Dancer’s Edge has a large bin of used shoes available for all students to borrow when they are here for class.
