Jessica Loves bringing her knowledge to inspire the next generation!



Classical ballet is a style of dance strongly rooted in tradition and discipline.  It places an emphasis on lines of the body, precise footwork, and artistically expressive positions of the arms. Students will be taught warm up exercises, ballet positions, vocabulary, barre work, center floor work, and progressions across the floor



Jazz is a style of dance that finds its roots in ballet, but was enhanced by musical trends, social dances, and the popularization of dance through movies and musicals.  It can be percussive with intricate rhythm patterns or fluid with emotional intensity.  These classes place an emphasis on isolating body parts, increased flexibility, leaps, turns, and exhibition of individual personality. 


Hip hop is a high energy class that encourages students to step out of the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Different styles of hip hop and movements will be taught in this class. All music and movements are clean and age appropriate.



A graded system of Barre, center, and progressive techniques emphasizing speed and clarity of sound and rhythm. Tap is the music of rhythmic sound made by the feet.
