Adult Classes 2021

Miss Zoe's School of Dance is proud to offer a wide range of adult classes in a multitude of styles. Most classes are adults ONLY and all ages and abilities are welcome! Our casual classes are non-performance and performing is optional in other classes.

CASUAL/NON-PERFORMANCE CLASSES


Open Beginner Dance

This class is a fun & relaxed dance class suitable for beginners and the more experienced dancer. The lessons are different each week and you do not need to remember choreography for the next lesson! Lessons consist of a stretching component, dance technique/skills (dependent on style of the week – could be hip hop, jazz, broadway jazz, ballet, contemporary, or tap), and a short routine at the end. The great thing about this class is that if you aren’t too keen on the style one week, it will be different the next! Lots of fun for groups of friends & couples!


Beginner Jazz/Hip Hop

Similar to Open Beginner Dance, this is a fun & relaxed class for those wishing to focus on Jazz & Hip Hop – these styles are fun, upbeat, and classes are full of energy! This class will include a stretch & warmup, cover basic technique & strength exercises for both styles, and a short choreography component to finish. This will be a non-performance class so choreography will change week to week and there is no need to remember a routine! Perfect for complete beginners, dancers with some experience who have never tried Jazz or Hip Hop, or those looking for a fun, casual, non-performing class.


Beginner Ballet/Contemporary

Similar to Open Beginner Dance, this is a fun & relaxed class for those wishing to focus on Ballet & Lyrical/Contemporary – these styles are more technique-based. This class will include a stretch & warmup, cover basic technique & strength exercises for both styles, and a short choreography component to finish. This will be a non-performance class so choreography will change week to week and there is no need to remember a routine! Perfect for complete beginners, dancers with some experience who have never tried Ballet or Lyrical/Contemporary, or those looking for a fun, casual, non-performing class.


Fitness (13+ years)

This fun stretch n fitness class will be a combination of stretching, toning exercises, agility training, and simple strength training with and without the assisted use of weights. There is a big focus on core strength and stability and students will increase their fitness levels through a differing weekly class. Students of all fitness levels are welcome as everyone works at their own ability throughout the class.

PERFORMANCE CLASSES


Jazz

Jazz is a popular style of dance and at Miss Zoe’s we focus on learning jazz technique, style, and performance skills. These fun, upbeat classes make use of both popular and traditional jazz songs with a focus on age-appropriate music, costuming, and choreography choices.


Hip Hop

Hip Hop is a popular style of dance with lots of attitude and at Miss Zoe’s we focus on learning hip hop technique, style, and performance skills. These fun, upbeat classes make use of popular hip hop songs with a focus on age-appropriate music, lyrics, costuming, and choreography choices. These high-energy, physical classes are great exercise!


Ballet/Pointe

Ballet is the fundamental dance style, with a flowing yet structured feel – there is an emphasis on safe dance practice and technique. It is extremely graceful and students enjoy the feeling that comes from dancing ballet! At Miss Zoe’s we do not do exams, rather we focus on teaching ballet technique in a fun, yet challenging manner.


Contemporary/Lyrical

Our contemporary classes are suitable for beginner and experienced dancers. These classes are a combination of modern/lyrical and contemporary dance and will contain both soft and strong movements with an expressive feel. Students are encouraged to express themselves through movement in a safe and non-judgmental environment.


Tap

Tap at Miss Zoe’s is fun, upbeat, and current – students can make as much noise as they want! Students will learn tap technique with no pressure of exams. Tap is great to help train the brain and make mind-body connections that will last a lifetime!


Broadway Jazz

Our Broadway Jazz class will focus on classic-style jazz that you would see in older, classic movies and onstage in musicals – think jazz hands and lots of flair! The class will be open to teenagers and adults who want to experience a different style of jazz. All abilities are welcome!
