Musical Theatre is a fun combination of acting and dancing. In this class, dancers learn classic and contemporary songs from various musicals such as The Little Mermaid, Wicked, The Lion King, Annie, Cats, Hairspray and many more.

Acrobatics is the combination of gymnastics with ballet and jazz. We develop splits, handstands, somersaults, cartwheels, bridges, walkovers, aerials, handsprings and more. Acrobatics starts with building strength, flexibility and body awareness. Safety is always first in every acrobatics class. Ballet and jazz will help the acrobat with the technique and dance steps to put it all together.
Jazz dance encompasses a diverse range of dance styles (contemporary, lyrical) combined to create a fantastic collaboration of skills. Jazz is more sharp and crisp and is often accompanied by music you hear on a pop radio station. Jazz can be very specific in its style or free and wild, but ultimately, it is always entertaining. Big jumps, high kicks and a lot of pirouettes (spins) are often a signature of jazz dance. A well-trained jazz dancer, with a solid ballet foundation, will shine in contemporary, modern, hip hop and many other styles of dance.
Tap dance is very distinct due to special shoes with metal “taps” on the ball and heel of the foot. The taps allow the dancer to act as an instrument. Creating sound when they dance and strike different parts of their feet on the ground. We don’t just focus on the sound but an overall performance for the stage and that is what sets our dancers apart. We learn the skills to execute those incredible sounds. As well as the ability to carry ourselves with confidence and poise. Tap dancers at Elev8 Dance develop a heightened sense of rhythm and timing.
Hip Hop is an evolution of dance suitable for everybody. Fun and energetic, the mainstream new styles and skills learned in the dance studio can be showcased out of the studio and this is what makes our Hip Hop so accessible. We provide an appropriate and safe environment for all of our dancers to explore their inner bebopper or diva. The crossover training between ballet, jazz and hip hop makes our dancers unstoppable.
Ballet is a refined art danced by dedicated athletes. 600 years old, ballet is defined through its poise, grace, power, control and speed. Although graceful and remarkably beautiful on the surface, we teach our dancers to develop strength, power, balance, agility, flexibility and muscular control. Pointed toes and stretched knees are where it all starts. The skills of a well-trained ballet dancer build an exceptional foundation to excel at all other styles of dance.
