Parent/Tot Intro to Dance– is designed for the very young dancer between the ages of 24 months and 3 years old. Parent participation is required for this fun-filled hour of dance! Using many different exciting dance activities and creative props, the young dancer will begin to develop balance, coordination, and simple dance technique.
Tiny Tot Combo Classes–The “combo” class is a combination class for the young dancer which includes ballet, tap, and hip hop. The dancer will learn the basics of each technique as well as developing coordination and gross motor skills (hopping, leaping, skipping, etc.).
Hip Hop (all age groups) – Hip-Hop & Break Dance encompasses many dance styles, but we present it in an urban or street format. The student is introduced to rhythm, musicality, control, dynamics, posture, and performance. This style of dance is very popular in commercials, in the movies, back-up dancers for artists, music videos and more. Though hip-hop is usually high energy, some classes are now taught to use more isolation techniques. The goal of his class is to provide a framework of choreography in which each dancer will be able to add their own personal style and attitude. Groove Nation’s Hip Hop is known through out the NW as being cutting-edge while leaving out the negative aspects.
Contemporary/Lyrical /Modern – These styles of dance has been featured on the hit TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” .

Our instructors are top-of-the-line, award winning choreographers that love to inspire young dancers to reach their maximum abilities.
Tap or Funk Tap –Tap is an exciting dance form that makes you the musician along with the dancer. It explores the use of smaller muscles of the feet and body, along with the larger ones. In Funk TAP, it combines traditional tap techniques with rhytmn and funk and creates an energetic style of dance! You haven’t done tap until you’ve done it with us.
Musical Theater and Broadway Dance –Broadway Dance and Musical Theater borrows songs from popular musicals such ask “Fame, Hair Spray, Grease, High School Musical and more, and encorporates theater as well as some singing for certain age groups.
