Acting & Theater
Acting is the art of performing in plays, movies, or television productions. Students begin with learning the differences between each & how to navigate on stage directions & camera directions. Serenity emphasizes proper breathing & speaking technique in our acting classes, as well as emotional presentation. Students are encouraged to participate in a vocal & dance class. Vocal lessons are 30-minute private lessons and cannot be booked online.
Serenity Ballet Classes utilize a combination of the French Method, Royal Academy of Dance Method, the Vaganova Method, and the Balanchine Method. This allows our teachers to train and educate the student as a whole.
Tap & Jazz Program
Tap class is a high-energy and teaches rhythm and coordination. Jazz is an expressive and lively discipline combining contemporary moves and current music trends. Dancers can develop coordination, musicality, flexibility and strength.
Hip Hop Program
A high-energy dance class that involves improvement in coordination, rhythm and movement as well as learning muscle memory and control. Students will be able to expand their skills into other areas such as break dancing, locking, popping, gliding, and so much more.
Connect the mind and body through fluid movements. Contemporary dance stresses the versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of balled. Dancers focus on floor work, using gravity to pull them down to the floor. This genre is introduced at LEVEL 2 in combination with BALLET.

Liturgical Dance Projects at Serenity
A form of movement which serves as an expression of praise and worship. We will incorporate contemporary, lyrical and hip hop dance genres set to Christian based songs.
