Ballet is an elegant and highly technical style of performance dance that uses its own vocabulary based on French terminology. It has been globally influential and has defined the foundational techniques used in many other dance genres. Here at The Little Dance World, we teach ballet based on the style of the Royal Academy of Dance.
Tap is a percussive style of dance that features tapping sounds made by the dancer moving their feet to the music. This style requires special shoes with metal on the soles that enable the dancer to not only dance to music, but also make music.
While not formally a dance style, we also offer tumbling at The Little Dance World. Our experienced instructor Mr. Michael uses floor mats that allow students to safely learn floor tumbling tricks. Tumbling helps dancers improve their coordination, flexibility, and core strength.
Musical theater is a style that combines dance with acting and results in a fun theatrical style that is as much fun to perform as it is to watch. It allows dancers to learn to be more expressive and step into the shoes of various characters.
