Premiere Dance Academy recognizes that students have different areas of interest and levels of commitment to dance.  We are happy to enroll dancers who wish to study dance intensely as well as those who wish to have dance as just one aspect of their lives.  We provide a diverse menu of classes for all ages and levels.

Hip Hop

Teaches rhythm, musicality and coordination and age-appropriate choreography with no suggestive music/movement. This is an excellent class for high-energy kids who want to take a fast and fun class. Students are challenged to think on their feet while enjoying a fast-paced dance class. Our hip-hop dancers develop focus, strength, and agility while having fun.

Jazz

An expression of dance that combines ballet with hip-hop and other less structured forms of dance. With its distinctive style, our jazz classes incorporate isolation and stretching exercises emphasizing strong and proper body alignment and clean technique through floor work, turns, kicks and jumps.

Musical Theatre

Musical theatre is defined as “a form of theatre that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. “ Our goals this year will be to focus on vocal technique and character development as we learn how to “act” a song, not just sing it.  We will also work on integrating all aspects of musical theatre as we rehearse our show stopping recital pieces. You don’t wanna miss this!!!
