Ages 3 - 10
Mini Groovers, Little Groovers and Elite Groovers are Hip-Hop dance programs for children to move and groove under the direction of trained teachers who specialize in our own unique style of Hip-Hop. Motor skills, flexibility, core strength, dance basics, and listening skills will be strengthened with a focus on dance basics and flexibility as they learn to shine like the stars they are. (Ages 3-10)
Groove 'N Shuffle
See your child Groove and Shuffle as they learn basic beginner tap steps and hip-hop movements with a focus on rhythm and dance vocabulary. This combination class lays a strong foundation of the basic techniques that will have your Groover progressing to the next level.
Why not get the Best of Both Worlds? (Ages 5-7)
Groovers learn sassy, high intensity, commercial style choreography as they combine both Jazz and Hip-Hop technique with today's hottest music.
One of our most popular classes, Groovers develop their coordination, rhythmic understanding and musicality in an upbeat and supportive environment. Groovers learn the technique and history of Rhythm Tap, with emphasis on musicality through warm-ups, time-steps, historical choreography, original choreography, and improvisation. Tap dance, an American art form and a part of the Jazz music tradition, has a technique and history that our Groovers develop a passion for. (Ages 7+)
Using the vocabulary learned in their Tap technique classes, Tap Improvisation class is where our Groovers circle up and jam to own their stage on the spot by creating their own rhythms and patterns with no previous preparation or choreography.
Ever seen STOMP? Now is your chance to learn how they do it! Using the whole body to make music, Groovers will stomp their feet, clap their hands, pat their thighs, and snap their fingers to create a spectacular music and dance ensemble using the original instrument of the world, the human body. (Ages 8+)
Known for our fun, cutting edge Hip-Hop classes, dancers hone their coordination and musicality to today’s new school music as they warm up with isolations/cardio exercises and focus on building their strength and stamina. Groovers learn fast paced, high energy and complex movement combinations in their choreography. With roots in Popping, Locking, Breaking and House, this class hosts an electrifying fusion of Old School and New School that our dancers can’t get enough of. (Ages 10+)
TLC (Turns/Leaps/Conditioning) lays a strong technical foundation for Groovers to properly execute turns and leaps through exercises that focus on strength, flexibility, and conditioning.
House Dance is a funky style with deep, tribal rhythms, that involves a lot of footwork and allows dancers to explore their freedom of expression through sequences and improvisation. Great for beginners, this class is an aerobic challenge where Groovers will learn basic house steps like skating, jacking, and shuffle steps.

Annual Dance Concert

Why is taking the stage so important?
Taking the stage gives our Groovers something to work towards and helps to build their confidence and promote teamwork. Every year our Groovers eagerly look forward to taking the stage in June in celebration of their season of hard work. This performance is the payoff of spending weeks and hours in the studio doing something that they love, and it's their opportunity to share their growth and confidence with their friends and family.
Grooves Unlimited is proud to offer pre-professional training for Groovers looking for the next level in their dance education.
