What type of floor do we use?
The Fever has a professional flooring system made of a sprung sub-floor and a Marley top-floor. A sprung floor is extremely important in any dance studio or theater that will be used regularly. Since jumping is a major part of dancing, if done consistently on a hard floor, it can cause long term physical problems in the hips, knees, shins, ankles, and feet. A sprung sub-floor is made of foam pads and a thin wooden frame under plywood to allow the floor to give on impact and sink slightly with the dancer as he/she lands from a jump. The Marley top-floor is a vinyl overlay that functions as the actual dance surface, and is not slippery. This is especially important once dancers reach the advanced level of ballet and are dancing on pointe. A marley floor is smooth and will not splinter like a wooden floor.
What type of training do we offer?
Since proper dance technique is extremely important, correct technique must be taught from the beginning of a dancer’s training through the advanced level to prevent possible injury from executing dance movements incorrectly. We teach all of our classes with the focus of emphasizing classical technique, while still teaching artistry in dance. We teach about the body and how it works with movement. Posture and alignment is a huge topic, making sure that students are not injuring themselves while dancing.
Due to this focus, you will find many of our class styles go hand in hand with pre-requisite classes. We feel in order to properly train in certain styles of dance, you must partner this with the proper foundation and principals of coinciding technique.
Our Hip Hop classes incorporate fun, contemporary dance moves with traditional, common steps. In any style of dancing, it is very important to learn the language of dance. In order to be a successful dancer, you must be able to speak and understand the dance language. If you can understand the definition, your body will be able to perform the step correctly.
Terminology is taught in each of our classes, and is stressed to prepare dancers for opportunities to perform that will come from outside of our dance studio, such as dance companies, college, and even professional performance auditions. Students are also taught creativity, improvisation, anatomy, and much more!
Why don’t we allow parents in the room or class viewing from a window?
There are a few answers for this question.
- Our current location did not offer the option to install a viewing window with the current layout of all 4 dance rooms. Because of this, we have just gotten used to it.
- After 11 seasons and conducting much observation on classes both with and without parent interaction; as a whole, we find the dancer’s engage with their teacher better and the focus of the entire room can direct towards one person talking, watching, and conducting.
- We do offer “Parent Observation Week” a couple times a year and we highly encourage the family to get involved in this week!
