Who We Are

Stellar Dance Studio's goal is to create a safe place for students, where a love for movement is fostered while challenging each child to grow in their knowledge of dance. Stellar Dance Studio offers classes for ages 2 to 18 years old in multiple genres of dance including hip hop, contemporary, ballet and combination classes. Combinations classes are unique to Stellar Dance Studio and set us apart from other dance studios in Whatcom County. Dancers in combo classes have the opportunity to learn dance and tumbling in the studio and down in the gym.

Our favorite two quotes are:
"Dance, it's like dreaming with your feet"
~Constanze Mozart~
&
"Dance is the only art in which we ourselves are the stuff of which it is made."
~Ted Shawn~

Stellar Dance Studio, recognizes every dancer is different as are their specific goals. We hope to uplift, inspire and challenge your dancer to become their best selves.

Class Descriptions
Ballet:
Stellar Dance Studio offers classes in ballet from ages 2 years to 18 years. Beginning in Parent and Me, dancers learn musicality, rhythm and how to express themselves through dance. Twinkle Toes on up through company, expands on technique and terminology and of course the love for the art of dance. Ballet 2 is an invite-only course and company is by audition only. Pointe class is by invite-only with the expectation the dancer will be enrolled in a minimum of 4 hours of ballet technique alongside the strength and flexibility class.

Contemporary:
The contemporary class builds on basic ballet technique and blends it with modern and jazz movements. Less rigid than ballet itself, this class allows more personalization of dance style and freedom of movement. Class focuses on clean lines, smooth movement, grace and musicality. Class utilizes the center with standing and floor combinations using basic acro movement.

Hip Hop:
Hip Hop begins with Star Hoppers and continues to Teen Hip Hop. Each class is designed to build upon skills learned in the previous level. Hip Hop 1,2 and Teen Hip Hop will build on musicality and steps learned in the creative movement star hoppers class. Dancers will learn to isolate their body movements, expand their hip hop step repertoire and expand their ability to learn and retain hip hop choreography.

Jazz:
Jazz is a style of dance that emerged in the beginning of the 20th century. It utilizes the isolation and shaping of arms, hands and feet with an emphasis on timing and musicality. Jazz is used around the world on stages both in the theater and the music industry. It assists the dancer in learning to tell a story and in their perfecting timing and musicality.

Stellar Dance Company, by audition only:
Stellar Dance Company (SDC) is designed to foster technical, mental, and physical growth for dancers ages 9 and up. SDC promotes team building and mentoring to students looking to advance further into the performance arts industry. Members of SDC will be involved in community outreach, benefit performances as well as given opportunities to audition for Stellar Dance Studio main character roles, and attend multiple auditions, workshops, and conventions throughout the year that will help them excel in their craft. Company members are required to take a minimum of eight hours a week including Saturday morning company rehearsals where students will learn choreography, strengthen their technique and develop life skills, while forming friendships and building a team of equally driven dancers. During Summer break, company members are required to take a minimum of two classes a week, (when in town) in order to maintain technique.

Ballet/ Gym and Creative Movement/ Tumbling combination classes:
Students will continue to learn musicality, build on ballet terminology while learning proper studio etiquette; learning to respect the studio space, the teachers and their fellow dancers. Students will learn to use barre and begin to learn simple center combinations. Tumbling will be done in the studio and on occasion, down on the gymnastics floor.

Strength, Flexibility and Turns:
Strength, flexibility and turns uses exercises and movements to increase the dancer’s flexibility. This class is designed to teach dancers to engage and use core strength and to improve awareness and activation of specific muscle groups, to help with balance.

Tap:
Tap is a style of dance driven by the syncopated beats that resound from tap shoes. Dancers will build upon skills learned in creative movement classes and increase their ability to use musicality in dance.
