Athena Dance Academy

Dear Students and Families:

Athena Dance Academy is part of a dream:

The Art, as an essential part of the education of our children,  but also, Athena Dance Academy  responds to the request  of many parents interested in an  After School Program where girls interested in Dance,  find an interesting school , and a safe academical  environment  and especially with exceptional teachers.

Commencing with this school year 2015-2016, we will offer both basic programs in our Academy:  After School Program & Regular Program. Both will include classes of different styles –Latin Dance, Contemporary, Lyrical, etc – with the idea of satisfying the different tastes, but will include basic assignments like Ballet and Acrobatic.

Our mission is to obtain the highest Dance Academy, recognized by its choreographers, its presentations in shows and competitions.

For them we will work to achieve the highest levels in our teachings, interested in that our students train and learn that their bodies are a precious instrument,  and dance is the vehicle to demonstrate what we are and feel.

Types of Dance

Ballet 1

Ballet is a classical dance form characterized by grace and precision of movement and by elaborate formal gestures, steps, and poses. Through this class our kids will learn the basic ballet steps vocabulary and bare exercises. Also, stretch techniques, posture and classical music appreciation as well as introduction to choreography.

Through this class kids will continue learning ballet technique. The focal points of this class consist of keeping learning coordination, posture, and challenging steps.

Latin Dance

Latin dance is a real energetic and fun class where we introduce kids to diverse Latin American dance techniques. This class gives kids the opportunity to develop rhythm, coordination and enthusiastic choreographers.


The focus of this class is to develop flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control and concentration. It is a great class to build strength and movement control.

Contemporary Dance

Contemporary dance tends to utilize both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet and modern dance’s stress on the torso, and also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance. It sometimes also incorporates elements of non-western dance cultures such as elements from African dance including bent knees, or movements from the Japanese contemporary dance.

Lyrical and Jazz

This class is a combination of the Street Dance of Hip Hop and Jazz technique. This is an excellent class to develop rhythm, coordination and energetic choreographers. Kids will enjoy this class while they will learn Jazz and Hip-hop techniques.

Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance techniques. Lyrical dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion to interpret music and express emotion. A lyrical dancer’s movements attempt to show the meaning of the music. Lyrical jazz is a very passionate and emotional dance style.


Flamenco dance  is a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form. The flamenco is a solo dance characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm and body movements.

With roots in Indian, Arabic, Spanish cultures, flamenco dance is known for its sweeping arm movements and rhythmic feet stomping. Flamenco dancers spend a great deal of time practicing and perfecting the often difficult dance. Although there is no single flamenco dance, dancers must follow a strict framework of rhythmic patterns. The steps a dancer performs are dependent on the traditions of the song being played. Perhaps the greatest joy of flamenco dancing is watching the personal expression and emotions of the dancer, which change many times during a single performance.
