Ballet is an elegant form of classical dance that developed during the Renaissance period of 15th century Italy. It has become an extremely popular and widespread style of dance.

Contemporary Dance Classes
The Contemporary dance form is closely related to the Modern dance style. Our Boulder contemporary dance classes stress footwork, improvisation, changes in rhythm, and torso movement, among other elements. At Kinesis Dance we offer a Broadway Musical Mashup class for children ages 6 to 12. This class teaches dancers assorted songs, scenes and dances from our favorite Disney and Broadway musicals! Dancers in this class are then given the amazing opportunity to perform a showcase on stage, with the option for solos or ensemble work. Learn more about this fun and energetic contemporary dance class environment by contacting us today!
Creative Movement Dance Classes
Our Creative Movement dance classes are designed for young children from 18 months to 5 years old. Children who begin dancing early in their lives often choose to continue dancing for years, and there seems to be a correlation between dance, mental stimulation, and academic merit. We offer regular and bilingual parent-tot creative movement dance classes – for Spanish and English speakers – in which parents and children dance and sing together as an early introduction to dance. We use coordination exercises, songs, and finger play to improve motor skills and rhythm. Kinesis also offers World Rhythm classes for kids age 3-5, in which participants enjoy creative movement dance to the sounds of children’s music from around the world.

Hip Hop Dance Classes
The Hip Hop style of dance emerged as part of the urban hip hop culture – characterized by music, art, and dance – that arose starting in the 1970’s. Our Boulder Hip Hop dance classes feature breaking, popping, and locking as primary dance elements. Kinesis Dance offers a range of Boulder Hip Hop dance classes for all ages and abilities; all of our classes are fun and energetic, and you’re guaranteed to break a sweat! If you want to show off your Hip Hop skills on stage, you can do just that by bringing your routine to the Spring Dance Concert. Do you want to learn about Hip Hop dancing and culture? Contact us today!
Jazz Dance Classes
The jazz style of dance evolved in America in the early 1900’s as a combination of mainly European and African dance forms. It involves improvisation, syncopated rhythms, theatrical movements, and typically accompanies modern popular music of the time. Kinesis Dance offers jazz dance classes and jazz combo dance classes – such as jazz/tap – for dancers of all ages and abilities. Our jazz dance classes are fun and engaging, and will help you develop strength, coordination, balance, and technique. Our knowledgeable instructors are happy to guide you through the intricacies of jazz, so you can enjoy the practice for years to come. Learn more about our jazz dance classes by contacting us today!
Modern Dance Classes
Modern dance is a relatively free-form style that borrows from other forms of dance such as ballet and classical. Modern dance often involves improvisation and freedom of creative expression. Cindy Brandle, Kinesis’ Boulder modern dance class instructor, teaches our beginning and intermediate/advanced classes. Cindy teaches her modern dance classes with this idea in mind: movement comes from the inside out. She loves the way you can take control and express your inner emotions through movement. Her all-encompassing modern dance classes are inspired by styles of Modern dance from around the world. Sign up for one of our Modern dance classes today to experience the ultimate freedom of dance. For more information, please contact us today!

Learn the advanced footwork and flavor of Flamenco, strengthen your core while learning the exotic movements in a belly dance class, get in touch with the Bollywood aesthetic while practicing your Bhangra moves, or gain spiritual and physical knowledge of the ancient art of Hula.

Tap Dance Classes
Historically, tap dancing arose in the mid 1800’s as a mixture of multiple percussive dancing styles from Africa and the British Isles. It is characterized by the dancer tapping, striking, and sliding along the dance floor with special tap shoes. Tap dance classes offered by Kinesis will increase your fitness, rhythm, balance, and coordination; most importantly, our tap dance classes are a lot of fun! We offer beginner tap dance classes through advanced tap dance classes for ages 5 and up, as well as combination tap-jazz classes for ages 6-12. Our more advanced tap students have the opportunity to learn jazz and tap performances in the Spring Concerts. For more information, please contact us today!
