At IMDP, we offer a variety of dance classes to suit many ability levels. We do our best to make sure to provide an environment conducive to both fun and learning. To insure proper growth and development in our programs — and to help prevent injury — directors and/or faculty members will evaluate each student and place them in the class level deemed appropriate to his/her age, ability, skills set, and/or experience.
In addition to the recreational dance program, In Motion Dance Project also has a competitive student dance company. The IMDP Company consists of dedicated dance students — with equally as dedicated parents — who are committed to furthering their dance education through the development and mastery of each discipline of dance, with greater emphasis on technique, skill and performance.
Each year a select group of dancers is invited to join for the In Motion Dance Project Company. Company members are accepted based upon audition and/or faculty recommendation. Acceptance into the IMDP Company is a year-long commitment, during which students must achieve good attendance, strive to both learn and master choreography, and to represent IMDP at regional and national competitions.
This is the first step for young dancers. This class includes instruction in ballet, tap and introduces jazz.
Ballet is the oldest and most noble form of dance — perhaps the most difficult, but the most beneficial for the body placement and the best foundation for any other dance form.
Jazz dancing improves coordination, musicality, body discipline and awareness. It will challenge each dancer to create their own "style." Popular music is used for this high-energy class.
Tap aids in creating and understanding rhythms while making music with your feet.
Hip hop appeals to students because of the pop music used in class, as well as the isolation moves. Breakdancing is incorporated into this class.
Lyrical dance utilizes the lyrics of the music to tell a story with movements including balance and control.
This class is based on traditional Horton & Graham techniques.
Students will concentrate in tumbling, developing strength and flexibility.
Students will concentrate on leaping and turning technique in this conditioning class.
