LOOKING TO STEP THINGS UP?
"I love the variety of dance styles offered by iDance and the quality of the teachers. Even with a dance background, I've enjoyed learning new moves and techniques for different styles than I learned in formal ballet. It's also just so much fun to have a space to practice dancing."
This Street Jazz Progressive will combine the genres of Jazz, Hip hop and Street Dance. Street Jazz is a genre derived from dance styles that were explored outside of the everyday spaces such as dance parties, parks, school yards, and nightclubs.
This progressive will be social in nature, as street dance has always encouraged playful movement, confidence and the development of your own personal style. The choreography has been created to challenge you and push your development of musicality and stylized technique.
The playlist is overflowing with unique beats, covers with a twist and classics that bring back rich memories. The classes will respectively incorporate movement, culture and foundational skills of a variety of different Street Dance styles.
Kassia and iDance honour and thank the community leaders past and present that have established and created some of the foundational techniques taught in this class.
This progressive focuses on musicality, emotion, and fluidity of movement as characterized by lyrical phrasing of the music. Lyrical/Contemporary combines concepts of modern dance with ballet and other popular dance styles. In this class you will learn to fully express yourself and how to move in your own unique way.
Each class will begin with a warm-up, turn techniques, kicks and leaps so that you can progress to the next level and develop contemporary movement, musicality, strength and flexibility.
During the second half of the class we will work on a routine which will be to the incredible work of Sia. On week 5 we will be recording the piece that we have worked on so that we have a cherished memory of our journey together!
This progressive is open level and is suitable for absolute beginner to advanced dancers.
This progressive ballet class will be a delightful journey through barre work, technique, leaps, turns, and beautiful choreography to classical music. During the first half of the class we will be solidifying the essentials of ballet technique and musicality by working on a set class, allowing us to have the comfort of focusing on technique rather than remembering steps.
During the second half of the class we will work on a mini ballet to classical music. For this first progressive we will be taking an adventure down the rabbit hole with Alice in Wonderland (Ballet by Christopher Wheeldon). Each performer will be assigned a character, which will allow us to explore characterization through movement. On week 5 we will be recording the piece that we have worked on so that we have a cherished memory of our journey together!
This progressive is open level and is suitable for all levels from absolute beginner to advanced.
