CLASSES WE OFFER
Join Our Dance Family
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.
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.
Jazz strengthens a dancer's technique while allowing them the freedom to take on high energy, stylized choreography.
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.
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.
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.
SPECIAL NEEDS CLASSES
This class is designed for dancers with physical and developmental disabilities. The class focuses on tap and jazz, and is offered free of charge. Adult and kids classes are available, all levels and ages are welcome.
Competitions are a great way for dancers to get extra experience performing while learning from other dancers and studios across the region. Group pieces as well as solos and duets are available upon request.
