Ballet & Pre-Ballet

Join Courthouse School of Ballet founder Karin Tucker  and  Ballet Instructor, Lisa Schultz for beginner, intermediate  or advanced ballet classes. Practice and improve your technique with an experienced professional dancer, teacher, seasoned rehearsal director & performance coach. 


Our little ones will enjoy a combination class of beginning ballet/creative movement and tap dance technique.  This introduction to dance is a great way to get your tiny dancer started!


The origins of tap dance can be traced to Africa and Europe and its evolution through American history via urban streets, rural town halls and mountain hollows has resulted in a kaleidoscope of movement expressing itself through sound.  Shirley Temple and Bill Bojangles Robinson, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers among others, brought the art form to the masses through film and it continues today in film, on broadway and on reality television.  Our students build a strong foundation with solid technique that can be applied to many of these styles of tap dance. 



Modern Dance

Our Modern Dance classes will guide the novice and experienced dancers in the foundations of American Modern Dance.  Come learn to move in the styles of Lester Horton, Martha Graham and  Katherine Dunham.  Build solid techinque and learn to MOVE across the floor and the stage.  Classically based dance with a modern feel and interpretation of the music.  You will discover how much joy there is in movement with our Modern Dance classes!  Open to dancers ages 11 and up with previous dance training.



Dance is a form of expression that took a turn for the abstract with the advent of jazz music. Talley Beatty and Bob Fosse revolutionized the Jazz Dance art form and their influences can be seen today on Broadway, on the concert dance stage, in film and in music videos.  Join our jazz and tap instructors to learn how it works.


Hip Hop 

The Rap/Hip Hop  genre of music has spawned several new styles of dance. The extremely popular dance themed reality television shows and dance talent contests have increased the exposure of hip-hop dance styles to global audiences.   The Courthouse School of Ballet offers weekly Hip Hop classes for children and adults.


Cartwheels, bridges, tumbling flips and tricks!  Your dancer/acrobat will learn to safely accomplish all of these fun things and more!  Flexibilty, strength and coordination will be our focus.  This is a perfect class for boys and girls with lots of energy! We offer weekly Acrobatics classes for children ages 4 and up!
