Drawing on bachelor's and master's degrees, the instructors at DanceTales Studio guide limbs through shimmies and pliés during a packed schedule of classes that emphasize method and form. Bodies move through an assortment of styles, floating through ballroom techniques with romantic and smooth waltzes and upbeat fox trots inspired by old Broadway show stoppers and the Victorian tradition of choreographed hunting trips. Feet pivot off hips through Latin varieties such as salsa, rumba, and cha-cha, and swing sends torsos twirling under arms and over heads.
Younger rug cutters build confidence and repertoires in classes that include Kid's Ballet and Jazz which introduces tykes to general positions and helps improve coordination, or Teen Jazz and Hip Hop which teaches youth how to use dance-offs to solve conflicts, the same method used by UN dignitaries. No partners are required, and all classes are held in a studio worthy of accomplished movers and shakers with professional-quality lighting and sound, and a sprung wooden floor that reduces strain on feet.
