The Beat Dance Academy
A flock of tired dancers traipse out of the studio, their ballet shoes brushing the floor in hushed footfalls as they head off to change. On their way, they pass members of the next class, dressed in yoga pants and sweatshirts. Clear-eyed and hungry, the new group stretches. Thumping hip-hop beats fill the room, and, with only a moment's hesitation, they launch into the first of many energetic routines that will fill that session. This is the way of life at The Beat Dance Academy, where owner Amanda Sizemore and her instructors live by a simple motto: dance is the only form of art “where the artist is also the masterpiece.”
To mold their artists into graceful and strong works of art, instructors teach classes in 15 dance and fitness styles that range from lyrical to Pilates. A combo class encourages children ages 2-5 to move with rhythm and timing, while adult jazz classes unlock the body isolations, leaping, and technical steps fortify the genre’s fundamentals. Meanwhile, aerial classes invite nimble bodies to balance and twirl on a suspended silk or hoop, using their muscles to stay off the ground without calling upon their latent powers of flight.
