Becoming a Well Rounded Dancer

Middle & High School is a time to find out who you are, what your interests are, and how to spend your time. Whether just starting out or strengthening your skills, you are free to take the classes you love, or try something new. Each dancer can continue with the standards of ballet, tap and jazz for a solid foundation, but they can also add on popular styles of lyrical and hip hop. No matter what your goals are, we have classes that will fit.

 

Classical ballet is the foundation for all styles and is required for jazz and lyrical classes. Dancers will be stronger, more flexible and progress more rapidly when they continue Ballet studies.  Age is used as a guideline for placement, but experience is more often considered when selecting a level.

Classical Ballet: Emphasis on technique, stretch, flexibility, terminology, and pointe preparation.

Tap: Emphasis on basics, rhythms, technique, sounds.

Jazz: Emphasis on flexibility, technique, jumps, turns, and performance skills. Ballet enrollment is required.

Lyrical: Emphasis on flexibility, control, expressions along with techniques of ballet and jazz.  Ballet enrollment is required.

Hip Hop: Emphasis on musicality and rhythms as a funky jazz, fast-paced style of dance. Jazz enrollment is highly recommended.

Dance Theater: Musical theater with a dance emphasis. Dance, movement, singing, acting, performance skills.

“I would recommend this dance school because it offers more than other schools do such as advanced classes, music classes, competition team, and NHSDA (National Honor Society of Dance Arts]. The teachers and staff are professional and willing to help out whenever they can.”

-Kelly G.. (Proud Dance Mom)

“CDMS is a great place to learn to dance! They’ll give your child or children a firm foundation in dance in a structured, but family friendly atmosphere.”

-Michelle M.  (Proud Dance Mom)

“My daughter has danced at CDMS for over 10 years, joining this wonderful family is the best decision we made. Lori and her staff are professional, courteous and give the dancers the foundation they need to excel in all genres of dance. We have made life long friends at this studio and wouldn't have it any other way.”
