Contemporary dance is an expressive style of dance that abandons the rigid, centered aspect of classical forms of dance, and utilizes unconventional movements from styles around the world. It incorporates certain elements of ballet, modern dance, and jazz.
Jazz dance is an umbrella term encompassing several different styles of dance that became popular in the early 20th-century.
Ballet is a theatrical art form using dancing, music, and scenery to convey a story, theme, or atmosphere. It is graceful movements in which conventional poses and steps are combined with light flowing figures (such as leaps and turns). Classical ballet is the foundation from which nearly all dance styles have developed. It requires strong technique, athleticism, and grace.
Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes.
HIP-HOP / STREET
Hip Hop dance combines several different styles of dance. It incorporates old and new dance moves and styles like break dancing, popping, crumping, traditional jazz, Jazz Funk & New Style moves.
Tap is a unique style of dance involving specific and rapid footwork. The dancer's foot and shoe essentially act as a drum, and each part of the shoe makes a particular beat and sound.
Until further notice, Motif will continue to offer all of it's classes both In Studio and Virtually through Zoom. Dancers will have the option of choosing how they would like to continue their dance training throughout the year. It is extremely important that our families choose the option that they are most comfortable with. Virtual Students will still have the opportunity to see the other dancers through Zoom since the Virtual Classes will be taught in real-time as the In Studio Classes.
In Studio Dancers are required to wear a face mask upon arrival and during classes. They will be required to remove their outside shoes at the door and will receive a temperature check. All Instructors will wear a face mask throughout the evening as well. If your dancers is feeling under the weather in any way, they should not come to the studio. Please email us right away, we will provide options for the missed classes. The dance studio's floor has been marked to promote social dancing, there are several sanitizing stations throughout the studio and the studio is thoroughly cleaned at the end of the evening.
Families may choose to take all classes In Studio or all classes Virtually, we also offer the option to register for a mixture of both. Once the dancer's registration is complete and the Term has started, they will not be allowed to switch hybrid types from week to week or in the middle of a Term. Changes to hybrid options may only be done at the start of the New Term. Please see our "Session Dates" to better understand the set Terms.
The Hybrid Class Registration is ongoing. Dancers may join at any time. Please be sure to register for the correct Term and Class Type (In Studio/ Virtual) during your registration. The class registration now includes one option for In Studio Classes and another option for Virtual Classes. The registration list contains both options for all 5 Terms.
