Acro/Tumbling

From cartwheels to back hand springs, somersaults to elbow stands- we have got you covered! This class uses a lot of strength and coordination to learn acrobatic style skills.

African

Dancers will learn many rhythms and body patterns that are often tied together with the strong sense of language and story telling.

Ballet

We emphasize the form, structure, and classical vocabulary of the traditional western form of Ballet. Mutual Dance & Arts Center teaches Ballet that is gender-inclusive and focused on being coordinated, strong, and graceful. Through Ballet, we also hone memorization skills, coordination, patterns, and full-body awareness.

Creative Movement

We teach your child the joy of movement: in its creativity, freedom, and power to express! A pre-cursor to Modern Dance, Creative Movement is more about innovation and individuality, and less about traditionalism and rules.

Jazz

While it started out with top hats and kicks, today, Jazz also encompasses popular dance. Jazz is a fun technique that is about style, lines, kicks, jumps, turns, and shapes. When taught to children, Mutual Dance & Arts Center teaches a combination of classic Broadway jazz and today’s movements and trends. We teach a technique that is age-appropriate and, as with all of our classes, gender-inclusive.

Hip Hop

Our Hip Hop classes teach rhythm, coordination, musicality and choreography without suggestive music or movements. Students are challenged to think on their feet while enjoying an energetic and fast-paced dance class. Our Hip Hop dancers develop focus, strength, and agility while having fun. This is an excellent class for high-energy dancers who want to take a fast and lively dance class.

Leaps & Jumps Skills

This class is solely dedicated to working on taking flight- there is always room to improve!!!

Modern Dance

We know how hard it can be to find Modern Dance classes for children. It is part of our mission and passion to offer Modern Dance for all ages. In Modern, we teach your child the joy of movement: in its creativity, freedom, and power to express! Modern is Mutual Dance & Arts Center’s favorite technique, because it’s more about innovation and individuality, and less about traditional techniques and movements. Think: barefoot, creative movement, expressivity, and moving through space with different kinds of energy and flow. Dancers will also learn how to utilize the floor. This class is terrific for dancers who are interested in dancing, but not wanting to join in on a classical ballet class!

Stretch & Strengthen

A full body class that helps dancers become more flexible and work on core, leg, and upper body strength. In doing so, other dance styles and forms become easier and major improvements are made!

Tap

Tap is an amazing dance technique that is a ton of fun for all ages, as it engages the mind and body to a great degree. Dancers will learn rhythms, control, coordination, memorization, vocabulary, and isolations. We teach a technique that is age-appropriate and open to everyone!

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is often described as a gentle way to reduce stress. A traditional Chinese tradition that is now used as a non-competitive, yet graceful form of stretching and exercise, Tai Chi is synonymous with focus, movements, deep breathing, and flow. This class is great for the entire family- All ages and abilities are welcome!

Turning Skills

Turns of all kinds are important in a dancers’ repertoire. This class will work on improving the basics and learning new skills that involve turning and rotations.
