Come and train your strength, stability and consistency of acrobatic movements. This workshop will focus on clarity of fundamental trick details to improve safety and beauty of execution. Conditioning and flexibility will be a focus at the beginning of each day followed by extensive trick work. Dancers will be introduced to new acrobatic elements, while getting plenty of one on one attention to master skills they’ve already been working on. Each day will also involve incorporating these skills into a center combination emphasizing flow and artistry of acrobatic dance. 

Step touch your way through the most exciting Musicals! Each day will focus on one of our favorite musicals while students sing, act and dance through some of our favorite scenes as we find out what life is like as a triple threat. No experience necessary, just a love for all things Musical Theatre!

Get in touch with the history, fun and exuberance of the jazz dance style. Our jazz workshop will include an extensive warm up each day followed by progressions across the floor and a center combo that pushes dancers’ stylistic exploration and attention to detail. Jazz dance is about confidence, power and sharp movement. Dancers will be coached on the entertainment value of the style and how to capture an audience with their execution of the choreography. 

The Hip Hop Workshop is focused on learning the ins and outs of the hip hop and street style dance world. We will be working on choreography and freestyling, in the styles of Hip Hop, Street, Industry, Jazz Funk, and more! Get ready to express yourself with faculty from all over Austin! 

The Dance Strong workshop is designed to teach dancers the principles of injury prevention, anatomy, and strength building. The program is designed in a progressive format that begins with a gentle warmup class, an anatomy 101 section, followed by a workout, then ending with a core workout and a cool down stretch or recovery class. Dancers will leave this workshop having learned the core fundamentals of strength building and injury prevention in dance and will be able to apply them though out the rest of their dance training. 

The ballet intensive curriculum focuses on strong technique rooted in the traditions of classical ballet with elements of contemporary movement. It is designed to help advanced dancers in the development of solid technique and artistic style through the challenging combinations and variations presented in each class. In each class, dancers will have the opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for dance and movement, while growing in athleticism, artistry, clarity, grace, speed, and musicality.
