EXPLORE WITH US! School-Age Dance Program

For ages 7-11

Designed for elementary school students to further their exploration of and love for dance. Students continue to discover how and why they like to move while mastering foundational skills and vocabulary in tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, and hip-hop.

As these students approach middle school, they have the opportunity to meet with Miss Deb to discuss different paths their dance journey might take. Whether they want to pursue dance as a career, enhance their love for musical theater and performance, build endurance and coordination as an athlete, or just join us each week because they love it, we’re here to help them grow with confidence that shines in and out of the studio.

Shine with Us middle and high school dance classes in Newton

Please see below for a complete listing of all our classes in our Shine With Us Middle and High School Dance Program:

Classical Ballet

Learn one of dance’s most respected disciplines

Ballet is one of the world’s most beautiful and revered art forms. Children love building on a foundation of basic movements set to beautiful music as they grow their strength and abilities.

While it can be challenging at the higher levels, this traditional dance form is a pleasure to learn for all ages. Students who take ballet classes build self-control, body awareness and self discipline as they learn to master increasingly technical moves.

Expressive and fierce

Contemporary dance is rapidly becoming of the most popular styles of dance, not just at All That Jazz, but all over the world.  Contemporary combines many genres of dance, from classical ballet to lyrical to jazz to hip hop.

Dancers in these classes will learn self-expression, improvisation, and creativity – while simultaneously maintaining a strong focus on technique.

Hip Hop

Bust some moves on the floor

Hip Hop dance classes for kids at All That Jazz Dance Studio in Newton are geared towards hip hop for the dancer, rather than hip hop as pure street funk.

Classes are very energetic and begin with a proper warm-up, including stretches and conditioning, followed by short combinations across the floor and always finishing with a fun and age appropriate kids dance combination.

Experience the energy of jazz

Jazz dance classes in our Newton studio always begin with an aerobic, age-appropriate warm-up, including stretches and some conditioning elements, followed by progressions across the floor and finishing with a combination that incorporates skills practiced during warm-up and across the floor.

Students learn many different genres of jazz dance, including musical theater, swing, funk and even a little bit of hip hop.


Dance styles combined = fun

This class is a combination of jazz, hip-hop, and swing dancing. Lively music and up-beat moves dominate this unique and aerobically challenging class.

In a typical class, students will learn partner swing dancing as well as proper jazz technique across the floor and finish with an energetic center combination.

Free and flowing

This class is geared towards dancers who wish to take their dance technique to the next level. Lyrical dance takes the best of ballet and jazz and combines them in one beautiful, flowing and emotional art form.

Students learn how to tell a story through their movements, while learning techniques made famous by Alvin Ailey and other modern day dance choreographers and innovators.

Musical Theater

For those who love to perform

Our fabulous musical theater program expands all ages and levels.  For older students, classes may focus on the many aspects of musical theater; e.g. auditioning techniques, tap dancing, using proper facial expressions while dancing, and many other aspects that go into becoming a “triple threat” on stage. These special dance classes are ideal for performers who are seriously involved in musical theater but may have less formal dance experience.

For younger students, our musical theater classes are designed to be more of a jazz class with super-fun, high energy Broadway style routines!

There are a variety of Musical Theater Jazz and Tap classes for all dancers who are looking to express themselves creatively on stage.  Proper dance technique is combined with fun acting games and improv exercises across all levels and ages.

Pointe and Pre-Pointe classes are offered by permission only for students with significant ballet experience. This half hour class is designed to be taken in conjunction with one of the other purely ballet classes.


Feel the beat and the rhythm

Tap classes focus on both rhythm tap and musical theater style tap. A capella rhythms are taught in most classes, followed by technical progressions across the floor and finishing with a fun and rhythmically challenging combination.
