Demi Dance Company focuses on technique, strength, flexibility, and musicality as dancers learn choreography to popular music in the styles of contemporary, jazz, modern, lyrical, and hip hop. Classes will include ballet barre exercises to teach proper alignment and positioning. Demi Dancers should be familiar with basic steps such as a grapevine, chasse, chaine turn, ball change, three step turn, jazz squares, pivots, pirouettes, and pas de bouree (“back-side-front”) and be ready to learn more advanced turns and leaps. Dancers who would like to progress more quickly are strongly encouraged to enroll in classical ballet to develop better technique.
APPROPRIATE DANCE ATTIRE: For company classes, students should wear a black leotard and “suntan tights”. Tan jazz shoes are required for the performance, but either black or tan can be worn for class. Boys may wear black jazz shoes, a black or white T-shirt and athletic shorts/pants/sweats, but nothing baggy.
