Dance

Julestarz offers a wide variety of classes in both dance and music.  We provide instruction in the following areas…

Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. It develops the dancer’s flexibility, balance, strength and posture. It is highly recommended that the first class a dancer signs up for is ballet. The more ballet, the stronger the dancer!

Pointe is for the more advanced ballet dancer. This form of dance enables you to perform fully on the top of your toes. Dancers must obtain approval from our ballet instructor and be enrolled in at least two additional ballet classes per week.

Tap is the most rhythmic of dance forms. It increases coordination and develops a sense of rhythm, timing and expression. Learn to tap and discover the secrets of tap greats like Fred Astaire, Eleanor Powell, Gregory Hines and Savion Glover.

Jazz is a fun and upbeat freestyle of dance born in the United States with its basic roots from Africa. Energetic popular music is used for this class.
