Ballet is the most widespread and predominant dance form in the world. Earle Cobb focuses on technical training in the Russian technique, interspersed with Italian and French styles. Earle Cobb is firmly rooted in the belief that today’s dancers must be able to adapt to any choreographer’s style, and therefore must be well-rounded, technically proficient and as fast thinking as possible.
Pointe class requires strong ballet technique. Students combine strength, balance and flexibility.
Tap is an exciting rhythmical dance style that is truly American. While many teachers have tried to imitate the “Earle Cobb” style of tap, this is its only true home. As students progress, they study many different varieties of tap dancing. Students will study Broadway-style tap dancing, rhythm tap, tap improvisation and many other tap techniques.
Jazz is an electric, exciting style commonly seen in contemporary musical theater, television and movies. It is a dance style that belongs exclusively to our American culture.
Hip-Hop is most recognizable from popular television shows and on music videos. Earle Cobb Dance Studio offers a fusion of East Coast and West Coast hip-hop with pop-and-lock as well as street and old-school styles. Hip Hop dance at Earle Cobb is highly energetic and athletic so dancers have fun and express themselves with age appropriate movement and music.
