Create your Own Combo Class! A set of 30-minute classes on Monday afternoons, this structure allows dancers to pick and choose different styles of dance, without committing to multiple days of the week or hours of classes. Dancers can take classes consecutively, or have a 30-minute break in our waiting area between lessons.

Acro 1

In this class students will learn the basics of acrobatics with an influence of dance. Handstands, flexibility, conditioning, and beginning pyramid building are just a few of the elements covered in this class. Students will learn how to support one another physically though lifts and pyramids. Basic flexibility and strength will also be learned to help improve the endless movement possibilities in the acrobatic discipline.

Adult Dance

This class is for those who want to learn to dance while also getting a fun workout and learn a variety of styles. $25 drop-in.

Ballet

This class will expose dancers to a classic art form without requiring them to attend Ballet classes several times a week. It will include barre, floor, vocabulary, and choreography. The technique, confidence, and grace dancers develop will compliment all styles of dance.

*Note: Ballet I on Fridays at 7:00 (for the Fall 2024 session) is recommended for dancers with at least 2 years consecutive ballet experience. This class is required for participation in Pointe 1 at 8:00. Ballet II on Mondays at 7:15 is required for participation in Pointe II at 8:00.

Ballet 'n Play

Young dancers explore movement and learn basic ballet technique with peers while enjoying activities and props set to fun music. Perfect for older toddlers who are ready for more structure, but still thrive on the freedom of movement and creative activities that an older class may not offer.

Broadway Jazz

Broadway jazz is similar to Broadway Tap in that it is a kind of show dancing you might see in live musicals, shows, and theatre performances. Broadway Jazz incorporates the turns, jumps, and leaps of a typical jazz technique class into a story-telling characterization that might be seen in a musical production.

Broadway Tap

Broadway Tap is a kind of show dancing you might see in live musicals, shows, and theatre performances. In this class dancers will learn to tap to famous musicals and broadway tunes in a theatrical style.

Cheer

Learn elements of cheerleading in the context of dance! This class will focus on the importance of rhythm and musicality, flexibility and stretching, and learn performative choreography.

Creative Ballet

Dancers will learn beginning ballet technique and vocabulary in a developmentally appropriate manner. This class will also allow children to express themselves creatively using inspiring props, story dancing, creative dramatics, and folk dancing. Let your child fall in love with dance at a young age so that they will want to continue to improve their dance technique as they grow!

Contemporary

This class will combine elements of Ballet, Modern, Lyrical, Jazz, and Improv. Contemporary is an expressive style of dance. The dancers will learn to tell stories and interpret emotions and ideas through technical and fluid movement.

Dance 'n Play

Young dancers explore movement with parents and peers while enjoying activities and props set to fun music.  A great way to introduce young children to dance and social learning.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is a street-originated style of dance. Students will be kept up-to-date on the latest moves and music trends as seen in pop culture. This class also includes cardio, circuits, and strength training moves.

Jazz

Jazz dance emphasizes a rhythmic awareness. Includes technique, stretching, strengthening and combinations. *Contemporary Jazz places an emphasis on conveying a story or emotional connection.

Jazz Funk

Jazz Funk, or Street Jazz, is a hybrid of hip hop and jazz. While not considered to be actually hip hop, jazz funk borrows many movements from hip hop and combines them with underlying jazz technique. The result is fun, upbeat choreography to strong beats and rhythms.

Junior TOPs

Junior TOPs is the training program for TOPs. It will consist of technical training and will provide more performing opportunities. A strong commitment to our 10-month program is expected. This class is invitation only and is closed for observation.

K-Pop

K-Pop is set apart from other music not just by its energetic beats or dominant language, but also by its choreography. K-Pop performances often involve fast, coordinated and precise group dancing that is high-energy and synchronized. Dancers in this class will learn choreography from famous K-pop performances, practice dancing in a group, and listen to K-pop artists such as BTS and BLACKPINK.

Modern

Modern dance began in the early 20th century as a reaction to classical Ballet and focuses on the expression of emotion through core and upper bodywork, improvisation, and floor work. Students will learn vocabulary, floor work, and choreograph

Mini Acro

In this class students and their parent/caregiver will be introduced to the building blocks of acrobatics. Basic tumbling, handstands, flexibility, and pyramid building are just a few of the elements that will be covered in this class. Students and their parent/caregiver will learn how to support one another physically through partnering and group lifts and pyramids. Elements of basic circus essentials will also be introduced through fun movement to gain a greater exposure to the circus arts. Strength will also be taught throughout to help improve the endless movement possibilities in the acrobatic discipline.

Parent & Child Tap

Learn to tap alongside your child together! Parent dances free.

Pointe

Dancers invited to join Pointe I must demonstrate a sufficient understanding of alignment and have adequate strength to avoid injury. To be eligible for a Pointe Promotion, dancers must be at least 11 years old, have two years of ballet experience, and be assessed by an instructor. This class will help dancers develop the strength, alignment, and technique to dance en Pointe at the barre and on the floor. Please wait until instructed to purchase pointe shoes. Pointe I students must also enroll in Ballet I. 

Dancers invited to join Pointe II have developed the proper strength at the barre in order to perform intermediate level steps properly en Pointe. For dancers to be invited to join Pointe II, they must demonstrate a sufficient understanding of alignment and adequate strength in their pointe shoes in order to avoid injury dancing without a barre. To be eligible for a Pointe Promotion, dancers must have three years of ballet experience and be assessed by an instructor. This class will help dancers further their skills in dancing en pointe off the barre, performing more complex steps en pointe. Pointe II students must also be enrolled in Ballet II. 

Pointe Prep

This class should be taken in addition to your ballet technique class. It will not perform in the annual recital. Students will focus on building strength and flexibility necessary for success in pointe shoes. The class will include exercises to develop foot flexibility and proper alignment while increasing ankle and leg strength.

"Pop" Hop

This exciting class is an age-appropriate version of hip hop for younger dancers. “Pop” Hop will use today’s pop songs and moves, creating a fun way for our young dancers to get funky! It will also include cardio, circuits, and strength training moves.

Performing Group Workshop

Invite-only class. This summer class is optional for current TOPs and Jr TOPs members, but recommended to keep skills sharp. Classes will rotate between select CDT staff and present a variety of styles.

Tap

Tap is a true American art form. While combining classic dance steps with rhythmic syncopation, students will develop a sharper sense of rhythm and coordination. Tap dancers will enjoy memorizing fun combinations and making “music” with their own feet!

Creative Dance Theatre is very proud to be represented by this amazing team of dancers! This well-rounded program consists of various styles of dance. Aside from building stronger dancers and performers, being a member of our “team” gives teens a safe, accepting environment to learn with the focus placed on positive things! This class is invitation only and is closed for observation.

Turns and Leaps
