Classes & Programs
Our Mini classes are specifically designed for our littlest dancers to start exploring the basics of dance through beginner ballet and creative movement. This class will introduce students to dance class structure and encourage positivity, playfulness, and love of movement and music. Dancers will not only learn about the basic foundations of dance, but will also be introduced to important classroom behavior such as listening, taking turns, and teamwork! Dancers will perform 1 dance at our recital.

The Intro to Tumbling/Hip Hop class starts our age 4-5 dancers off with a combination of hip-hop and tumbling.

Ballet is offered as an individual class option for students ages 6 and up. In class, students will learn this important and traditional style through technique, strength, elegance, and flexibility.

Tap classes are offered as an individual class option for students ages 7 and up. Tap is a high energy dance form which highlights footwork, rhythm, and isolation.

Acro classes are offered for students age 6 and up in Acro 1 and intermediate-advanced acro. Acro is a fusion of dance and acrobatics. At Revive, we follow the Acrobatic Arts Curriculum and believe in the importance of safety in our students. Therefore, we strive to encourage each student to progress at their own pace and offer two different levels of classes. Classes will include strength training, flexibility, tumbling, balancing, limbering, and more acrobatic dance instruction. All classes will be taught using mats and with an acrobatic arts certified instructor, who is professionally trained to spot the students.
Jazz classes are offered for students age 6 and up. Our jazz classes draw upon the technique dancers learn in ballet and encourage expressiveness of movement. Jazz dance has its origins in African traditions, and has evolved to include a variety of styles and techniques over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. Classes include isolations, centrework, across the floor exercises, and trains dancers in musicality, flexibility, and expression. Jazz students are encouraged to also take ballet.
Musical Theater classes are offered for students age 6 and up. This jazz-based class incorporates dance movement and acting to tell a theatrical story. Students will learn about performing expressively in both their dancing and acting as they explore different ways to use their energy and facial expressions. Often performed to Broadway style music, this class will include jazz technique, acting exercises, and theatrical routines.
Hip Hop classes are offered for students age 6 and up. Hip Hop dance has its origins in social and street dance, and began from Black and Latino American communities in the mid 20th century. Hip Hop is typically danced to Hip Hop style music and encompasses freestyle movement focused on rhythm and expression.

Lyrical/Contemporary classes are offered for students ages 9 and up. Lyrical and contemporary dance styles draw from a variety of techniques such as ballet, jazz, and modern to create both a technical and self-expressive style. Our classes will focus on expression, and incorporate a wide variety of movements and techniques to educate students in this artistic dance form. Lyrical/contemporary students are encouraged to also take ballet.
Modern classes are offered for students ages 7 and up, beginning in our Intro To Modern class. Modern dance has a rich history that developed from the desire to push the boundaries of classical ballet technique. Beginning in the early 20th century, modern dance focuses on exploring new forms of movement and revolutionizing an old art form. In modern, dancers will learn about balance, suspension, and the classical “shapes” of this exciting dance style using the entire body. Dancers will be introduced to the style of Graham, Horton, Taylor, Duncan, and many more historic modern dance influencers. Modern students are also encouraged to take ballet.
