Classes

Arie Dance Company provides a fun, inclusive atmosphere so all dancers feel welcome. We provide both recreational and competitive programs for ages 18 months-18 years.

Programs

Styles

Recreational programs are 30-50 minute style-centric classes. Dancers come in once a week to enjoy learning about a specific style of dance. Recreational programs start as young as 18 months and range up to 18 years of age. Dance experience is not required to register for recreational programs (unless otherwise stated) and recreational dancers will participate in our year end recital.

Company programs are competitive dance programs. Dancers registering for Company programs must have previous dance experience and will be evaluated by the Studio Director in an audition prior to program registration. If selected, dancers will be put on a team that best suits their skill level. Company dancers attend multiple competitions throughout the dance season. Additional pieces such as solos, duos, trios, and small groups are available to Company dancers.

Acro is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. Dancers must be enrolled in a Ballet and/or Jazz program to enrol in an Acro class.

Ballet is a classical dance style using grace and precision to build a strong technical background. The technique gained in ballet is used in all other styles of dance.

Jazz is a technical but open style of dance. It is fun and full of energy consisting of leaps, turns, and other unique moves.

Lyrical is characterized by fluidity and grace that blends elements of ballet and jazz.

Contemporary is an expressive style that involves musicality, combining jazz, lyrical, and modern dance styles.

Tap is a form of dance using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. This style allows dancers to not only dance to the music but add their own instrument.

Hip Hop refers to street dance and primarily involves breaking, locking, and popping. Hip Hop is a fun and upbeat style and has many forms.

S.T.R.O.N.G. is a class offered as additional training to our competitive dancers on our Royal and Slate Company teams. S.T.R.O.N.G. stands for Stretch, Tech, Reflect, Open, Nurture, and Grow. These dancers will improve their flexibility, refine their technique, and be challenged to get out their comfort zone with improvisation and personal reflection.
