LEVELS

We understand how it could be very challenging for you to determine what level of class you should be taking. See, the difference between Boogiezone and any other “typical” studio out there is that we allow you to take whichever class you feel most comfortable trying. It’s all about the challenge at the end of the day. Are you a brave spirit, new to dance but are willing to take risks, feel free to hop into and Advanced class and see how you like the pace. Find it a little too fast for your comfort, then you know that maybe Intermediate would be a better bet. This is way we want you to explore at Boogiezone. You won’t know what you like until you try it so just go for it why don’t you?

CLASSLEVEL_01.png

Start here. If you have zero to little experience with dance then you are a Super Beginner. These classes introduce you to the most basic and fundamental concepts in choreography and movement. The focus and aim is mainly on body awareness and helping you to exercise muscle memory through repetition and learning short simple dance sequences. The pace the class goes is kept in time with the comfort level of the students. No one is left behind!

CLASSLEVEL_02.png

Do you have a little bit more training under your belt, but have difficulty picking up intricate moves and sequences? Or perhaps you have a tough time remembering choreography and you forget what comes next? Get your feet wet? Beginning classes will help you expand your dance vocabulary and you will be introduced to fundamental dance lingo, terms and approach. These classes may offer similar movement you would get in an upper level type course, but delivered at a much slower and relaxed rate. More time is spent breaking down the moves and more time is spent practicing them. Our goal is to make sure that you have fun and leave feeling accomplished! Keep in mind at each teacher brings a different kind of “beginner” to their classes. Test out which instructors fit your method of learning by trying them all on for size!

CLASSLEVEL_03.png

You’re moving now, and maybe have a bit more confidence with picking up the steps? Intermediate classes help you hone in on how to dance with more style, precision and confidence. Here you will be challenged with more dynamic choreographic movement, levels, tempo and ways to execute. You will learn about the different textures, colors and feelings of dance and have the opportunity to share with your dance peers in smaller groups. The focus has now shifted more so on enhancing your performance technique, teaching you how to connect to your audience, and becoming an inspiration to others through your movement.

CLASSLEVEL_04.png

No holds barred. Advanced classes are intended to push your artistry to the limit! Here we practice full self expression, awareness, and confidence. The movement and choreography doesn’t necessarily have to be intricate or hard. The combination you learn also doesn’t even have to be very long. What makes an advanced class “advanced” is the level of thought, focus, and attitude that is required of the students to learn in a high intensity environment. Anyone can take an advanced class if they have the mental capacity and drive for it! Want a push and a burn, go for advance Boogiezone classes! Zooom.

STYLES

Just like some of us like to candy and some others don’t, or some prefer coffee over tea, there is going to be a dance style that we offer that you will absolutely want to gravitate towards, invest your learning into and immerse yourself. Or maybe there will be two at the same time that you would want to dabble in? Perhaps you’ll grow through phases like most do with their cereal? At Boogiezone we offer a plethora of dance styles taught by passionate teachers who are well versed in that style. Not sure where to start? We are most known for offering the most robust Hip Hop training around! Again, explore, take a chance! Maybe you can start with whatever type of music you enjoy listening to? Now, imagine yourself dancing to that music…which style did you pick? Below is a brief description of dance styles. Take a close look at our schedule to see which ones we are currently offering!
