CLASS DESCRIPTIONS AND ATTIRE NEEDED:

Creative Movement:  This class focuses on basic locomotor steps and beginning ballet steps.  Structured games and improvisational exercises are designed to inspire movement and rhythm in small children.  Students will participate in interactive activities, while learning to love dance.

Hello to Ballet/Tap:  One ½ hour each of ballet and tap.  Ballet consists of working on basic locomotor steps, positions of the arms and feet, correct alignment, beginning barre work, short combinations, and exercises designed to encourage and spark freedom in moving and love for dance.  Tap will work on basic steps, simple rhythms, and short combinations.

Modern:  This class is a fusion of Ballet and Modern dance techniques. Dancers will learn Modern dance technique from Modern dancer/choreographer icon, Merce Cunningham.  The aim is to create sufficient body alignment, movement patterns, and freedom through phrases in the center and across space.  This class gives the dancer the opportunity to develop various movement skills/abilities and perform a piece with a strong message to their audience.

Rhythm & Groove:  A class that will explore movement and music with a variety of sources to create sound!  Dancers will use their bodies and other objects and instruments to create a soundscore of movement.  We will focus on the combination of sound and physicality.

Youth Ballet:  This class is designed to work specifically on the French style of Ballet technique.  We will work at the barre, in center, and throughout space with adagio, petit and grande allegro phrases.  Students will learn proper use of turn-out, port de bras, and elegance through space.

Youth Jazz:  A class working on locomotor steps, body isolations, positions of the arms and feet, correct alignment, short combinations, improvisation and exercises designed to encourage the combination of how we feel and dance. 

Dance Attire:  Ballet, tap, or jazz shoes are preferred. Socks may be worn for ballet if need be. Modern dance is danced barefoot!  Children wear any color tights and a leotard for ballet and creative movement. Jazz pants, shorts or leggings may be worn with a tank top or t-shirt for jazz and tap. Child tights, leotards and shoes are often found at Shopko, Payless, Wal-mart and/or Target stores. Many online sources are available as well.  (www.discountdance.com)

Instructor:  Piper Morgan Hayes 

“Piper” Morgan Hayes grew up in the small community of Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin and began dancing during fourth grade.  In May 2012, she graduated from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Contemporary Dance. Immediately after graduation, she began her graduate studies, a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Dance with Hollins University as well as began the production on a very special artist-in-residence project.  After a year-long competition amongst 10 other groups of artists, she won an opportunity to have a piece produced with the world renowned entertainment icon Cirque du Soleil.  By August 2012, the creative dance piece was produced and presented to Cirque du Soleil representatives.

After having finished her Master of Fine Arts degree in Dance in August 2013, Piper Morgan is continuing to pursue the study of dance, presentation of her own choreography, shaping of a dance company, aerial/trapeze arts, and working with various talented artists.  Her focused goal is to expand the arts community in the Midwest by serving as a choreographer, guest artist, and professor of dance/aerial arts as well as forming her own dance company.  She has served as a Guest Artist with Washington & Lee University (Lexington, VA), Guest Teacher with University of North Carolina School of the Arts (NC) and Beloit College (WI).  Currently, she serves as an Adjunct Professor at Carthage College (Kenosha, WI) and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater teaching Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Pilates and Modern while choreographing several dance pieces each year as a resident faculty member.
