Adult Dance classes at Gulf Coast Dancenter, contemporary, ballet, and jazz.

2 levels available:

  • Beginner (Level 1) – You’ve just started ballet in the last 2 years, and you’re more comfortable with a slower pace, and being able to watch someone during combinations.  **Must have completed at least 2 Intro to Ballet Series or have prior ballet experience.
  • Intermediate (Level 2) – You’ve been taking class consistently for at least 3 years (or maybe you’ve just returned to ballet!), and are starting to feel comfortable with a faster-paced class, but you still need help breaking down steps, or you need to watch someone, from time to time.  Advanced dancers are welcome to come and work on their foundation and technique while immersing themselves in a supportive adult dance community.

Classes you will get to experience at this workshop:

  • Ballet – a technique based class that lays the foundation for posture, movement, flexibility and body control.  This class helps to set up a dancer for success in all the other dance genres.
  • Variations – you will learn a ballet “variation,” or dance choreography from a famous ballet.
  • Jazz – combines techniques of classical ballet and modern dance with current forms of popular dance. Classes include warm up, isolations, stretches, across the floor progressions, and choreography combinations.
  • Contemporary – fuses together many different dance styles such as ballet, jazz, modern, and lyrical. This genre of dance often includes floor work, improvisation and a versatility of body lines and dynamic movements. Contemporary dance is the exploration of the total movement potential of the body.
  • Health and Wellness of the dancer body – guest lecturer, Steve Lund, LMT.  Steve’s past and knowledge consists of himself being an athlete as a competitive skier, high level coach for sking, retired Chiropractor, and now a dedicated massage therapist specialize in medical message.
