Whether for fun or for sport, dancing is a wonderful way to express yourself. If your child is interested in learning the movements and concepts behind contemporary dance, it pays to have a good dance teacher in Brandon, MS. At Beverly’s School of Dance, you’ll find only the best teachers, helping students learn the most essential concepts of dance.
We teach beginner, intermediate and advanced dance classes to students of all ages. Our choreography combines elements from timeless dance styles to create a fun, exciting experience. Some of the styles we draw from include:
- Ballet: Our ballet instruction teaches poise, grace and prowess, as well as the fundamentals for ballet and all of dance styles that abound from it. Dancers will learn proper steps and movements, balance, position and form as they become familiar with this timeless style of expression.
- Tap: Tap dancing involves intricate steps and rhythm, combined with energy and showmanship! We teach basic tap to students to get them familiar with the concept of different movements and delivery, so they can explore this one-of-a-kind style of dance.
- Jazz: Our general dance lessons often contain elements of jazz, however we sometimes host classes the focus specifically on this dance modality. Jazz incorporates elements of tap and ballet, fusing them into a fundamental repertoire of moves that any accomplished dancer can master!
- Hip-hop: With a focus on fluidly using the entire body in tandem with the rhythm and beat of the song, hip-hop dancing is a competition favorite style of dance! We incorporate elements of hip-hop dance into our general dance classes, but occasionally offer these classes individually.
In addition to our general dance lessons in Brandon, MS, instructor Shey Allen Campbell also teaches classes that help our dancers condition their bodies and get familiar with certain movements:
- Tumbling: Tumbling is great for acclimating dancers to their center of gravity and plays an important role in executing certain dance moves.
- Gymnastics: Gymnastics are great for improving a dancer’s flexibility and body awareness, which helps them to become more fluid in their dancing.
- Baton twirling: A great showmanship skill for competition, baton twirling can complement dancing with props and accessories.
