Starlighters' owner Laura Hawkins and Johnny Lambert draw upon decades of dance experience to preside over a troupe of professional performers who lead hoofers of all ages through ballet, tap, hip-hop, jazz, and ballroom moves. In weekly 75-minute sessions, tap classes let percussive pedagogues introduce steps from classic Broadway styling and informal Morse code. Ballet aficionados lead students through five basic positions and into advanced on-point pirouettes, and modern-dance coaches fuse Afro-Cuban, Latin, and lyric styles. Solo coryphées or couples in ballroom-dancing sessions learn to perform basic steps and advanced lifts while tracking progress in studio mirrors. Dancers twirl and leap in two modern studios with sprung hardwood flooring that minimize stress on joints and maximize envy from regular hardwood tree houses.
