Keeping David City Dancing Since 1996!
Our Mission: Barb's School of Dance and Desiree's Dancers is committed to sharing our passion to dance with children and adults throughout our communities. We are devoted to providing quality instruction in a positive environment. Our goal is to offer a variety of dance styles with classes at every level to inspire every dancer. Our staff members are each unique and bring their love of dance to each class.
Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. Body placement, flexibility, balance, alignment, strength and technique are achieved through barre and center floor work.
Tap helps children with their timing and rhythm and every child loves to put on their tap shoes! Tap is taught to the level of the class and students will explore all the possibilities that their “instruments” have! As students advance in their skill their footwork will become more challenging and more intricate.
Clogging is a type of folk dance with roots in traditional European dancing, early African-American dance and traditional Cherokee dance. Clogging emphasizes the downbeat of the music by enthusiastic footwork.
In our Jazz classes, students will learn ballet based technique such as turns, leaps, jumps. Students will get to experience traditional jazz (Broadway, Fosse, Giordano), Contemporary style jazz as well as modern day jazz styles. This class is energetic and fun!
Acro is a blend of acrobatics and gymnastics. Acro is great for improving a dancers strength, flexibility, endurance and agility. Students will learn many tricks, including tumbling skills, contortion, balances and sports acrobatic partner skills. Plus our studio is certified with the program Acrobatic Arts.
Our lyrical classes fuse the technique and style of both ballet and jazz. Students work on expressing emotion while telling a story through the use of the lyrics and music. This is a great style for any dancer with training in ballet or jazz who want to expand their knowledge in different styles.
In this class, children will learn basic motor skills such as hopping, skipping and balancing as well as basic ballet movements. This class brings out the “dancer” and lets children explore their creativity. Parent involvement is not mandatory but some dancers do require parent help in order for the class to run smoothly. However, our goal is for your child to take this class independently.
Cheer Dance is a quick moving, high energy class. Students learn sharp movements often used in cheerleading and also work on flexibility, leaps, turns and stunts. This is an excellent class for aspiring cheerleaders or for the dancer who just loves to move fast and work in unison with a group.
Hip hop dancing is an ideal way to express one’s creativity. It features self impressions and the dances come from the soul. The dancing represents body movements that go with the beat and rhythm of hip hop music!
