Acro

Acro is a combination of dance and gymnastic movements used to portray athleticism and enhance choreography. This dance style develops strength, balance, flexibility and team work. 

 

At The Hive, we teach the Acrobatic Arts syllabus focusing on safe progression for all ages and levels. Contortion, tumbling, balancing and partnering are all part of this fun filled curriculum!

We also offer specialty Acro classes that focus on each element individually. See more info below.

Ballet

Ballet is probably the most recognizable type of dance. With it's signature tutus and ballet pointe shoes, ballet is light, airy, and graceful while at the same time requiring great athleticism, and technical abilities.

At The Hive, we train dancers with ballet methods that facilitate strong technical skills and high performance quality. With a heavy emphasis on technical precision, ballet helps dancers to execute their movement with unparalleled aesthetic quality.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance has its roots in ballet, modern and jazz. Our contemporary class will teach the children to trust their gut feelings, to experiment with movement and expression, and to develop their musicality. This class will build the dancers' confidence, creativity and individuality.

Hip Hop

Hip hop is for kids who love the beat and are on a constant move and for those who have a passion for dance and culture. Our teachers will be teaching the different movement dynamics of hip hop, honing down footwork and floorwork with drills and practice.

Our Jazz classes are progressive. Teachers are diverse, bringing in their own dance and teaching experiences. There will be a solid jazz foundation that will be taught according to the age and progression of the dancers. We believe this curriculum will reflect the past, combine the present trends and techniques and prepare the dancer for the future.

Jazz

What kid doesn't love to flip? Tumbling is the gymnastics element of Acro where athletes learn how to perform flips, rolls, springs and more! These classes are skill-level specific (Beg, Inter, Adv) and will have students working towards mastering all of the fundamentals skills to properly progress to the next level.

Tumbling

 

The art of bending (Contortion) is often combined with the skill of balancing. This class will focus on improving flexibility as well as strengthening and stabilizing the body to perform contortion poses safely both on the ground and on handstand canes.
