Dance Class Descriptions
Participants in our Ballet Program learn progressively in a formal class environment. Instructor Ms. Laura Ground's extensive background in dance education informs her class-time emphasis on fundamental technique, with a dynamic and modern understanding of classical ballet within the context of the 21st Century. All classes direct students in proper alignment and positioning, appropriate technique, classical terminology, musicality, and performance etiquette.
An elegant fusion of ballet jazz and, modern dance elements, our Contemporary Dance classes are taught by Ms. Laura. Students will work on their fundamental dance technique, learn engaging choreography and develop artistic expression through movement
Instructors Hannah Vance introduce young pupils to a joyful, positive form of expressive dance. Have fun while exploring movement concepts, developing dance skills, strengthening the body and brain, and interacting with others in these predance classes.
This quintessentially American dance style returns to Homer courtesy of instructor Laura Ground. Students will stomp their way through class, learning all about the steps, rhythms and styles of tap. This year, we are offering beginning through intermediate dance classes for new and returning tap students.
A family friendly, age appropriate introduction to street dance styles, we are thrilled to introduce Laura Ground's unique choreography to Homer. A high energy class in an enthusiastic environment, hip hop at the Harbor School brings the ultimate in urban dance moves to the our hamlet by the sea.
Another great American dance style that encompasses African and European roots while embracing popular and jazz music. From Broadway to New Orleans and all the way to Homer, Alaska, this dance style takes students on a journey through America past and present using isolations, turns, leaps and steps.
