About the Dancing Tree Dance Theatre

Dancing Tree Dance Theatre

and

Conservatory of Dance and Movement

 

Dancing Tree Dance Theatre is a professional organization that explores the power of dance and movement in all forms, both on land and in the water, through education and performance. Dancing Tree supports the involvement of all age groups and socio-economic backgrounds by making the dance experience available to children, youth and adults of every ability or disability. Dancing Tree promotes the development and appreciation of a wide variety of integrated movement styles through education and community outreach programs and performance.

 

Classes are carefully planned and presented using classical techniques and creative brain/body principles that make learning enjoyable for all types of students. Students explore dance concepts(Weight, Time, Shape, Space and Flow), develop dance skills, strengthen the brain and body, interact with others, collaborate, choreograph and have FUN! Students explore a variety of dance forms throughout the year, including: Classical Ballet(Royal Academy of Dance-French method) and Modern Programs; Jazz(Luigi method), Tap(Rhythm and Broadway) and Creative Dance(Laban inspired). Using an approach that develops self-discipline, strength, creativity, and self-expression in a positive atmosphere, classes are appropriate for all ages, genders, and abilities.

 

Within this approach, by taking an active role in their own learning, students become skilled dancers and choreographers, achieving technical mastery and expressivity in an environment where they are challenged to use their critical thinking abilities and celebrated for their creative spirit. 

 

All students have the opportunity to perform throughout the year(informances and performances) and in the Annual Spring Concert. For those  students which aspire to the professional level, Dancing Tree Dance Theatre allows them to develop and progress with preprofessional classes and multi-media dance art projects.

 

Whether you aspire to dance professionally or recreationally, the Dancing Tree offers a safe and welcoming environment!

 

Dancing Tree, in addition, offers  quality fitness and wellness programs for all ages, abilities and genders: Senior Chair Exercise, Pilates-Yoga-Barre Fitness, Monday Morning Dance, Mommy and Me, Aqua Fitness and Swim instruction. Personal training in all disciplines available by appointment.
