Core Classes

HIP KIDS is hip hop made for kids ages 5 - 12.  Our teachers provide an energetic atmosphere with age-appropriate moves and music. These classes teach the hip hop style in a unique way that parents approve, so that students develop rhythm, music appreciation, movement skills, co-ordination, and self-confidence.  Totally cool - totally fun!

Ages 13 - 19.

JAZZ - With our exclusive syllabus in jazz dance, our students attain a high standard of achievement while having a blast dancing to popular music.  We teach how to move confidently through stylized & technical elements such as dynamic turn, kicks, and jumps.  It all gets put together into choreography that rocks!

BALLET -  At Encore, ballet is FUN!  We want to encourage students to study this genre as it is the basis of all dance forms, so we make a point of keeping the joy in with the technique and discipline.   We use the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus as the basis of our ballet program which is an internationally recognized standard for both teachers and students.  Even if you've tried ballet elsewhere and didn't like it, TRY BALLET AT ENCORE and feel the difference!

Try our CLASSICAL PERFORMANCE class for ages 12 & up with previous dance experience.  In addition to developing technique, musical and performance skills are developed through comprehensive choreography.

Ages 5 - 19 in all levels.  

CONTEMPORARY & LYRICAL - Express yourself through contemporary & lyrical dance!  Our instructors are professional performers who have earned their university degrees in these genres.  They are passionate about sharing their love of dance with the students - and students love to learn and perform dance in a way they find meaningful.   Ages 9 - 19.

  ACRO-dance has been at Encore since 2009.  This is a newer genre that is gaining in popularity for combining tumbling gymnastic tricks with flexible poses put together with seamless dance choreography.  Our instructors are accredited through Acrobatic Arts and are highly acclaimed in the Artistic Gymnastics community.  This program is outstanding!  Available in Combination Classes for ages 5 - 8, and in various levels for ages 9 - 19.

STRENGTH & FLEXIBILITY - The class title says it all!  Strengthen and tone while increasing range of motion and releasing tension.  Great as a stand-alone fitness class, this class is geared as a supplemental class for dancers to get more out of their training.  Ages 10 +.


COMBINATION CLASSES - Available in two age groupings, 5-6 & 7-8, this is the best way to get kids familiar with different styles of dance and keep them engaged.  Students learn two genres in a one-hour class, which means less decision making and more happy dancers!  Available classes are:  Hip Kids & Jazz, Acro & Jazz, and Tap & Vocal Theatre.  These classes fill fast so you will want to claim your spot early to avoid disappointment.
