A Little Bit of Everything

For middle and high school students

Brand New Class!  This special class is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for middle and high school students.  Designed specifically for those older dancers who have only ever focused on one dance technique, this class will give an overview of every style we teach at All That Jazz.

If your child took ballet when they were younger but now wants to try contemporary or jazz, this is the class for them!  If your child has only taken hip hop but is expressing interest in lyrical and tap, this is the class for them!  If your child is already enrolled in another class at All That Jazz but is curious about learning additional techniques, this is the class for them!

The class will decide as a group later in the fall which style they wish to focus on for the recital.  Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!

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.

contemporary dance

Contemporary

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.

Jazz

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.

Jazz/Tap, Ballet/Tap, Lyrical/Tap/Jazz: Combo Classes

Learn multiple styles at once

Students who want to sample two or more types of dance at once enjoy our fun and active combo classes.

These dance lessons are primarily geared for students in elementary school.

Jazzswing

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.

Leaps, Turns and More

Non-recital technique only class

This class is geared towards high school dancers who wish to improve their dance skills without the commitment of an end of year recital performance.  Students will learn such “trade secrets” like how to get a full split in their side leap, do multiple pirouettes and perfect their fouetté turns.

Lyrical

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.

Much like traditional lyrical, this class will help students learn how to tell a story through their movements.

Modern/Lyrical

A popular technique class

This class concentrates on the technique of modern dance, with a particular focus on the Horton method, the technique made famous by Alvin Ailey.

This dance class in Newton has a Pilates-based warm-up interwoven with traditional modern dance moves, progressions across the floor that may involve actual floor-work, and lyrical (a blending of ballet and jazz dance classes) combinations at the end.

Musical Theater

For those who love to perform

Our fabulous musical theater program expands all ages and levels.  Musical Theater Triple Threat is for older students who are seriously involved in musical theater but have less dance experience can attend these special dance classes for kids. Students will focus on the many aspects of musical theater; e.g. auditioning techniques, singing and dancing simultaneously, tap dancing, acting, and many other aspects that go into becoming a “triple threat” on stage.

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 in every class.

Pointe

For ballet-lovers

Pre-Pointe class is 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.

Younger kids class

Pre-Ballet/Tap (Please see our Brand New GROW WITH US! Dance Program)

For ages 2-7

The GROW WITH US! program at All That Jazz Dance Studio is a set of age-based classes designed to help young movers discover the joy of dance as a creative outlet. As dancers grow in age, they also grow their knowledge and skill in preparation for single-style classes at All That Jazz, taken at age 7 and above.

Street Jazz

An awesome combination of Hip Hop and Jazz

For older students, this class will teach some of the fundamental techniques of jazz dance mixed with the exciting world of today’s dance pop culture. This class promises to get students sweating, “lock and popping,” as well as pirouetting by year’s end!

For the younger students, this dance class in Newton will also teach some of the fundamentals of jazz dance, but we will mix those fundamentals with the fun moves of today’s hottest artists.

Tap

Get your toes tapping

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.
