We're here to guide you through the exciting journey of selecting the dance genre that'll make your heart dance.

1. Ballet: Graceful Elegance & Performance

If you've always admired the seemingly effortless grace of ballerinas and dream of donning those iconic pointe shoes, ballet might be your calling. Ballet is like poetry in motion, a harmonious blend of strength and grace. You'll learn to tell stories through your movements and feel the joy of mastering those beautiful pirouettes and arabesques. Though these skills take work, you will learn how to make each step seem effortless as you spin across the stage. Prepare to make friends for life and pirouette your way into a welcoming dance community with a ballet class. 

2. Hip Hop: Find your own Groove

Is your spirit independent and your feet itching to show your friends some cool new moves? Hip hop is all about expressing yourself with high-energy moves and a killer sense of style. Joining a hip hop class is like becoming part of a tight-knit crew, and the energy is contagious. You'll learn jaw-dropping moves and freestyle your heart out until you’ve perfected your own groove. Hip hop isn't just a dance; it's a lifestyle, and the community is as lively as the dance itself. Get ready to pop, lock, and drop with your new dance family!

3. Jazz: Energetic and Vibrant

For those who love a touch of sass and flair,  with a whole lot of energy, jazz dance is your groove. Jazz is all about letting your personality shine through every step and rhythm. It's a vibrant and dynamic dance style that exudes positivity and confidence. You'll be grooving to catchy tunes and mastering the movement in every body part. In a jazz class, you're not just learning dance; you're joining a vivacious community that celebrates individuality and exuberance.

4. Acro Dance & Tumbling: Defying Gravity

Are you the daring type who enjoys defying gravity and flipping through the air? Tumbling might be your perfect fit. Tumbling combines acrobatics and gymnastics to create breathtaking sequences. It's the ultimate adrenaline rush, and you'll be amazed at how your body can defy gravity with the right training, guidance, and technique. Tumbling classes foster a sense of trust and unity among participants as you spot and encourage each other to soar higher. Be ready to somersault into an inclusive and supportive community.

5. Social Dance: Connect Through Movement

If you're all about connecting with others through dance and revel in the joy of social interaction, then social dance is your groove. Social dance encompasses a wide range of styles like salsa, swing, ballroom, and more. It's not just about mastering steps; it's about building connections, leading, following, and feeling the music together. In a social dance class, you'll discover the power of non-verbal communication and the thrill of sharing the dance floor with partners of all levels. The social dance community is incredibly inclusive, welcoming everyone with open arms and encouraging a sense of togetherness that's hard to find anywhere else.

6. Tap: Rhythmic Percussion

For those who love the sound of rhythmic beats echoing through their feet and making their own music, tap dance is the way to go! Tap dance is a true celebration of rhythm and musicality. With metal plates on your shoes, you'll create intricate patterns and unique melodies as you move across the floor. The joy of producing your own music with your feet is unparalleled. In a tap class, you'll find a community that shares your love for syncopation and precision. It's all about finding your groove and making music with every step.

So, whether you choose ballet, hip hop, jazz, social dance, or a combination of classes, remember that a dance class is a safe place for you to dance your heart out and enjoy every second! At The Oaks Dance Studio, our energetic and welcoming community is ready to embrace you with open arms and dance together. Let's make memories, build friendships, and dance together!
