Dance as an Art Form

Dance Prep is committed to providing quality dance instruction that approaches dance as an art form through techniques based on historical tradition. Broadening the student understanding of artistic dance, building character, and helping guide them to dance from the inside out are the foundation on which all classes are built. Dancers of all levels with a passion to learn and grow skills in a challenging and friendly atmosphere are welcome.

Contemporary by Stephanie Brumer:

An interpretive and expressive style of dance, Contemporary dance blends many styles influenced by Ballet, Jazz, and Modern dance. Each student will learn different dance techniques, how to utilize self-expression through improvisation and movement, and work together as a group. Focus will be on poise, coordination, musicality and building confidence.

Classes are mixed-level and organized by age. Dance Instructors and NKU Teaching Assistants accommodate student skill level as appropriate (ie. beginner, intermediate, advanced). Students experience working in both large and small group settings.
