Adult classes have been in existence, yet kept relatively quiet, at Les Ateliers Turcotte since 2001. Many adult class styles and instructors have come and gone over the years to make time and space for the quickly expanding and highly talked about dance program for children and teens that now, years later, is fully realized.
JAZZ is a high level energy expression using body isolations, rhythm and personal expression. It includes a technical dance barre and centre at the beginning of class with a fun exciting jazz centre including jumps, leaps, turns, kicks, dance moves and choreography to finish.
Classical BALLET is a beautiful and highly respected dance art form. Classical ballet training teaches the esthetics of dance, is important for muscle balancing, and trains the brain concepts such as musicality, spacial awareness and coordination. And you’ll use muscles you never knew you had!
CONTEMPORARY Dance training is incredibly dynamic, open minded and full of free form expression. The highlights of this form include very expressive and interpretive movement and choreography. This is a full body work out!
TAP Dance teaches basic tap technique and steps. Rhythm and coordination will improve as well as physical stamina and control. This class is a great way to exercise both the body and the mind. Some clients call their taps their “happy shoes”. This is a great cardio vascular workout!
Adult Acro Fitness is a class adaptable to all levels, for those with or without previous gymnastics or dance experience. Develop your strength, flexibility, balance, stabilization, and cardio, while building confidence and having fun! Work on floor acrobatic skills adapted to your level of comfort and challenge, through a variety of progressions to execute both with assistance and independently.
