Denver Dance Classes
Our ballet classes are derived from the classical style of dance to help develop and further expand every dancer’s technique. A classically trained dancer can branch out into other dance styles more easily because they have acquired the technique needed to control their bodies. Ballet is not just about beautiful lines and amazing feet. Our ballet classes teach discipline, poise, and self-motivation. Our Denver classes will not only provide your dancer with priceless dance knowledge, but they will also acquire life lessons that will last them a lifetime.
Tap Dance Classes
Tap dance classes at our Denver location are a great way to teach kids about rhythm and sound. Our tap teachers are at the height of their talent and they share that talent with their students with the goal of creating tappers who are agile and musical. Our tap dance classes create strong, coordinated dancers who can move on to a dance career if that’s what they desire.
Hip Hop Dance Classes
Hip hop dance may be the youngest of the dance styles, but it is a very popular one. Dancers from all over watch their favorite dancers on TV and dream about acquiring the ability to perform the same moves themselves. Those teaching our hip hop dance classes can help our Denver students accomplish that goal. Hip hop dance Denver is not a technically driven dance style. It is a style that develops agility, coordination, speed, and strength. This style can be more acrobatic in many ways. Dancers will learn to isolate parts of their body to perform moves meant to mimic the music chosen for the choreography.

Benefits of Dance for Kids
A study by the American Medical Association showed that dance lessons for adolescent girls resulted in more positive thoughts and gave them more confidence in themselves after dancing, especially in structured dance classes that focused on enjoyment rather than perfection and performance. We certainly all want that for our young students.
The dance lessons at the Dance Institute in Denver do prepare kids for performance as well, as they regularly perform at retirement homes, community events, fundraisers and an annual recital. The routines our dancers are taught require elongated movements and full extensions. Not only will this help our young students develop strong bodies to support them in all their activities, again, it helps them perfect their craft and feel more confident when performing outside of our classroom.
In addition to all these benefits, it’s well-known that dance lessons for kids improve over-all physical health; cardiovascular performance, muscular strength, endurance and more.
Benefits of Dance for Adults
Remember, dance classes aren’t just for kids. We offer adult dance classes at our Denver location as well. Dance Institute teaches adult dance classes in tap, ballet and more. Studies show that dance greatly helps range of motion, motor skills and promotes the free movement of joints. The adult dance classes at our Denver studio can do all this and more.
Dance classes can strengthen muscles and improve balance, significantly decreasing the chance of falls or injuries for older adults. Brain scans on adult recreational dancers have also shown that they experience less age-related deterioration than non-dancing seniors.
