CLASSES WE OFFER

Join Our Dance Family

Girl Dancing Shoes

PRE-DANCE

Pre-Dance is designed to give students ages three to five an introduction to the classes we offer. This hour long combo class is part tap, part acrobatics and prepares students to take a variety of technique classes.

Old Tap Shoes

TAP

O'Connor Dance Studio started as a tap studio 65 years ago, and we are still teaching high quality, creative tap classes. Tap helps dancers improve their rhythm and musicality. We offer this class for all ages, including our adult tap class, for which no previous experience is necessary.

Youth Dance Group

JAZZ

Jazz strengthens a dancer's technique while allowing them the freedom to take on high energy, stylized choreography.

Ballerinas Sitting in a Circle

BALLET

Ballet gives dancers a strong technical base that prevents injury and strengthens technique across all the classes we offer. Pointe is available for advanced dancers at the teacher's discretion.

Ballet Dancer

ACRO

Increase your flexibility and strength with our acro classes. This class focuses on the controlled elements of gymnastics floor work. Our teachers are knowledgeable and work within each student's abilities to safely guide them through new skills and tricks.

CONTEMPORARY AND LYRICAL

Contemporary and Lyrical classes build on modern and ballet technique to create a fluid, emotive style. These classes focus on expressive performance quality and support work.

Musical Theater Dance focuses on character development and stage presence. This class lets dancers take on Broadway style choreography from the classics to contemporary hits.

HIP HOP

This challenging, athletic class incorporates elements of hip hop, drill team, and acrobatics to create fun and exciting dances. Hip Hop allows dancers to experience a rigorous technique that sets itself apart from our ballet based technical classes.
