Ballet belongs to the top dance genres. Though the dance’s choreography follows classical music, we introduce different subgenres, like neoclassic, romantic, and contemporary, alongside the classical one. Our talented professional dancers know and implement the six core widely recognized methods, like Cecchetti, French School, Vaganova, Bournville, Royal Academy of Dance, and Balanchine.

We love contemporary and do our best to promote it to our clients. This style incorporates many stunning characteristics of classical and modern dance forms. A specific emphasis on torso and legwork, contract and release, fall and recovery, floorwork, and unpredictable acrobatic tricks and speed and rhythmic changes make this style unforgettable.

Hip Hop belongs to the most popular and beloved dance styles names we practice and perform in our studio. We want to take you back to New York and Californian streets of the early 1970s when this style and culture appeared. We want to introduce to you all these amazing substyles, like breaking, locking, and popping, alongside their derivatives of turfing, Memphis jookin’, jerkin, and krumping. We have a specially designed dance floor that meets the needs of hip hop and other popular street dances in our studio.

If you do not know what jazz dance is, come to see it and get involved in it at “Hips Don’t Lie.” It is known and appreciated for its dramatic and highly improvisational body movements and the entertaining mixture of swing, Lindy Hop, Charleston, Shimmy, and other jazz dances modified to the tastes and requirements of the present day.

Among many other dance styles, modern dance is extremely popular in Canada nowadays. Its forms are structured, and steps are set, though every modern dance relates to the interpretational skills of its performer. Modern dance does not like any limitations and rigid rules. So, if you are interested, you can order stunning dance acts or personal classes on this style.
