Ballet is a more structured class than our combo class, a more formal setting that will give students the discipline to mature as ballerinas. Classical French technique with a mix of Russian & Cecchetti styles. Focus on vocabulary & French terminology as well as musicality, balance & coordination. Proper body technique & alignment will be emphasized as well as strength & flexibility. Work at the barre, center work & across the floor as well.

Jazz  classes combine techniques of ballet and modern dance and can take on many different characteristics, and styles including Broadway, Contemporary, Lyrical, Percussive and Street Jazz. Emphasis is on the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy and style. Each level of jazz is a continuation of the previous level and increases in difficulty.

Tap. The rhythm & movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels & toes of a dancer’s shoes, transform the dancer into a percussive musician. Tap dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms & beats not only in music but also in their own bodies. Making sounds with different parts of the tap shoe, toe taps, heel digs, shuffles & ball changes are taught at the beginner level. Each level of tap is geared toward mastering of skills & building upon the technique previously learned.

Hip Hop Through the fundamentals of hip hop movement, the dancer will enjoy an upbeat and high energy class. Stretching, isolations, rhythms, musicality, super body strength and funky footwork will all be incorporated. Choreography will focus on combinations but also personal style and expression.

Lyrical and Leaps & Turns is a contemporary form of ballet and jazz, this class is set to today’s music and its dances interpret the words of songs and are expressed by the dancer in the body and face. Leaps & Turns is a portion of each class. Emphasis is on the importance or energy, rhythmical accuracy and style

Musical Theater incorporates a combination of Jazz and acting. With this style of dance, you are working through Jazz technique while portraying a character. Using songs from Broadway, we focus on bringing out our inner actor/actress!

  • What Is Boni's Dress Code?
    All Boni’s dancers are required to wear appropriate attire to class. Our dress code is designed so teachers can observe that the dancer is utilizing proper alignment and muscles in class as well as the dancer’s body lines, including posture, arms, legs and feet. Dancers will get the most out of their classes when the dress code is followed.   It is very important to understand the importance of implementing a dress code in our programs. Our studio prides itself on a professional environment. Not only will it teach the children discipline, it will also help them take responsibility for their dance uniform. Please make it a priority to ensure your child has the proper dance wear and shoes for each class. Boni’s General Dress Code It is preferred for girls to wear a leotard at all times for all classes, with the exception of hip hop class. Long hair should be worn in a bun (preferred) or tight ponytail, secured away from face, for all classes. For the safety of all dancers, no jewelry, other than small earrings should be worn in class.  Ankle Length and Capri Leggings can be worn for certain classes (see individual class dress code). NO Booty Shorts for any class. Dancers should always wear a cover-up when going to and from the studio.  Street Shoes are not permitted on studio floors. Do not wear dance shoes outside the building, including hip hop shoes. Please bring all dance shoes in a dance bag. Label all shoes, dance wear and dance bags with dancers name.
