DANCE

Dance is an art that utilizes the body as a craft for expression. Dancers become versatile movers understanding spatial awareness, gain internal muscle connections, learn new directional pathways, build musical understanding, gain the ability to remember movement patterns of choreographies, build muscle and use it all as a way to explore the inner expressions of thoughts. Expression through movement gives the body a different approach to learning how to communicate with others and understanding specific dance styles and grows artists. At Intown Stars we offer Ballet, Creative Movement, Modern, and Jazz styles.

Our mission is Kids Like It Here! And our Motto is The Body Follows the Mind. This is a mantra that empowers each athlete to trust themselves, to believe in their own innate strengths, and to succeed on purpose.

This class is a way for 4 year old's to gain foundational ballet vocabulary and movements. In this class you need no prior experience. Students will build coordination at the ballet barre learning cross lateral (cross body movements) and homolateral (same side body movements)  movements as well as learning how to balance. Students will also utilize the center space of the studio to learn basic ballet positions and French terms for directions. In preparation ballet  jumps are learned to show how to move across the floor and build muscle in the feet/ ankles.

 

Beginner Ballet is a way for young aspiring dancers to begin building dance vocabulary and beginner movements at barre and center. No previous dance experience required. At the barre students begin learning basic vocabularies (in French) that teaches them to utilize muscular strength, balance, and learning expression. During center dancers learn the basic ballet positions, including jumps and turns. Students learn the difference between allegro (fast movements) and adagio (slow movements). Overall students are building the foundations of ballet strengths preparing for advanced ballets such as pointe or artistry.

This class requires no dance experience. Creative movement teaches beginner choreography and teaches the concepts of somatic practice. Somatic practice in this class asks the student's body to move without thinking through the thought of movement. In this class young dancers will learn how to build movement patterns, rhythmic structures, and practice memorization skills of motor patterns. During the class dancers will learn how to utilize speed, levels, direction, and learn how to share what they have created to the class. Dancers will be asked to follow different rhythmic suggestions based on sounds, sites, or emotions.

 
 

No experience needed. Dancers in beginner modern learn the most basic vocabulary from different modern dance styles. This will include floor work by Graham; using the core to initiate movement and build strength. Body isolations by Horton; using standing lateral movements to work the core, legs, arms and back. Center work is utilized through Limon; learning how to spiral in and out of the floor. As well as being able to use the body to rise in arching pathways using the solar plexus as taught by Duncan. Modern dance is taught by combining codified movement patterns of different companies to create well rounded dancers, who can be versatile.

In this beginner Jazz style dancers will need no prior experience in dance. Here dancers will learn how to soulfully express themselves. Dancers will learn how to isolate movements in different body areas (such as the head, shoulders, torso, feet). Dancers will learn the different stylistic practices of walks taught by Dunham and Fosse. They will also learn how to jump in different rhythmic and directional patterns. Students are also building muscular awareness as well as spatial awareness while traveling in combinations. Students are gaining knowledge of stylization through musicality and musical interpretation expressively.
