Ballet- At Unbound Dance Academy we believe that ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. Ballet builds technique, stretch, strength, balance, discipline and focus that is needed for progress in all other dance forms. While ballet is not required to enroll in other dance disciplines, it is strongly encouraged.
Pointe- ***3-year minimum of ballet training and teacher recommendation required*** Pointe classes are determined by a student's strength and physical development, not by age. Taking 2 additional ballet classes are required to be enrolled in any pointe class.
Jazz- Jazz classes explore traditional, broadway and contemporary styles in a fun, energetic atmosphere. Classes begin with a warm-up which stresses technique, flexibility, coordination and strength. Warm-up is followed by progressions across the floor, then center work and combinations.

These techniques stress long lines and isolations that build strength as well as flexibility. Technique is studied as well as an emphasis on dance improvisation. Choreography concepts and principals are also introduced. Ballet is required to enroll in any modern/contemporary class.
