Encore Dance Studio offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz. Contemporary, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre.

TAP

 

A style of dance which is performed wearing shoes fitted with metal plates. Students learn how to combine the technique of using the ball, heel and toe to create rhythmical sounds.

Encore begins teaching Tap from a young age, 4 years, because we believe in developing a comprehensive understanding of this technique. Tap is one of the most enjoyable styles.

BALLET

 

A very technical form of dance and creates the foundation for technique in all other styles of dance. Discipline and focus are required when participating in this form of dance.

Encore Dance Studio offers ballet classes from age 4, up to our Major Ballet levels. This allows the students to experience the style and technique involved from a very young age and continue to the highest levels.

JAZZ

 

The most common and most enjoyable style for most dancers. This is a style of dance that can be performed to popular music or cabaret and jazz songs.

Encore Dance Studio offers classes from 4 years of age. Our Jazz classes allow students to develop technique as well have fun as it is a very versatile style of dance.

CONTEMPORARY

 

Has become a very popular style of dance. It is an expressive style of dance which allows the performer to explore many emotions.
