Emily Teaches

Contemporary
Contemporary is a style of dance where students will push themselves mentally and physically to execute movement that is complex, intricate and dynamic. Contemporary also encourages the dancer to explore all the ways their bodies are capable of moving with a focus on finding the intention behind each movement. This class is offered to students who are 13 years of age and an experienced modern dancer (3+years).
Hip Hop
This popular, high energy class uses the latest sounds in rap, R&B and pop music together with movements influenced by some of today’s top choreographers. Hip Hop encompasses movement that has elements of poppin’, locking and breaking as well as freestyle movement to give students the opportunity to develop their own sense of style. Age appropriate hip hop music and movement is used for each class.
Jazz
This fun class combines upbeat, stylized movement with proper technique. Jazz dance is based on ballet principals with each class consisting of a warm-up using isolated movements, across the floor progressions and current choreography all set to age appropriate music.
Ballet
In Ballet class, emphasis is placed on age appropriate training, terminology, classical form and training each individual dancer to reach their personal goals. Our ballet program begins with a movement vocabulary that caters to the young mind and body which is shown in our creative movement classes. Ballet at Encore is taught with a passion and love for classical ballet movement.
Modern
Modern dance is an expressive style of dance created in the early 20th century that moved away from the structure of classical ballet technique. Modern dance is an integration of technique, floor work, dynamic athletic, and abstract movement. Modern dance is constantly evolving and growing with the contemporary movement of today while staying true to the technique created by the pioneers of modern dance.
Lyrical
Lyrical is an expressive form of dance that incorporates a fusion of ballet and jazz dance styles. Many times, this style tells a story through choreography and dance phrases inspired by the lyrics of the song being used. Dancers are encouraged to explore their emotions and movement through improvisation. A strong ballet and jazz foundation enhances the quality of movement.
Toddler
Encore Dance Center offers toddler dance classes starting at age 2. We focus on fun, rhythm, and developing motor skills.
Tap
One of the most traditional forms of dance using special shoes to create different rhythms, sounds and patterns. Emphasis is placed on precision, speed and clarity of sounds. Tap is great for developing musicality and coordination skills.

What People are Saying

What I love most about Encore is not only the exceptional dance foundation my daughter is receiving, but also the emphasis on building kind, confident, positive dancers and leaders. Alvina takes great care to ensure that her studio is a safe place for all dancers, and that the dancers care for and respect each other. Every teacher is professional and holds the dancer to high standards, while also encouraging fun and creativity. I also appreciate how studying dance has given my daughter strong core strength and flexibility, which is evident when she competes in other sports. We love being a part of the Encore family!

My daughter started dancing here when she was 3, she has loved it from the first day. The teachers are so encouraging, patient, kind, and just the absolute best. Dance has become a part of life. The teachers, kids and other parents have become family. We couldn’t imagine not dancing at Encore. In fact we have contemplated moving out of state and Encore has been the reason we have stayed. I couldn’t ask for a better atmosphere for my daughter to continue her dance education.
