Courses: Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, Latin, Belly Dance



Ballet is a traditional form of performance and concert dance that is usually performed to the accompaniment of classical music. Of all the styles of dance offered at CEG Performing Arts Academy, ballet is perhaps the most challenging. Students require a lot of training and a certain amount of natural talent in order to become successful ballet dancers. By the same token, the results are all the more rewarding. 


Our ballet instructor Larisa Saltsova and CEG Performing Arts Academy founder Cristina Elena Guzman has earned critical acclaim as a dancer in the past. Today, Cristina Elena remains passionate about dance and seeks to share that knowledge with others who are eager to learn. Cristina Elena offers courses for beginner, intermediate and advanced ballet dancers.


Develops a dancer's foundation of technique from which all other styles of dance build upon. It is very important for a dance student to maintain the study of ballet to continue to strengthen one's turnout, balance, proper body alignment, ankle strength and muscle control.  (Ages 6 and up.) One hour Class 

Hip Hop: 


The cultural revolution that is hip-hop spawned entirely new forms of dance. Many styles, such as break dancing, originated on the streets and slowly found their way into dance competitions and official venues.

This class is a fast-paced lesson in the history of the hip-hop genre. From the break beats of the early eighties and the sounds of DJ Afrika Bambaataa and Kool Herc to the latest Jay-Z track, this class offers nonstop funky beats and a fun workout to boot.


Taught by our hip-hop guru Reese Anthony, the core class is suitable for adults of all levels. There is also an additional class just for kids, where they learn the dance moves for an eclectic mix of old hip-hop classics and new hits.



Jazz is a highly expressive and unique genre of music. It is a quintessentially American form of music that relies heavily on improvisation, polyrhythms and syncopation.

This class borrows techniques from modern dance and concentrates on personal and artistic expression. Instructor Tahreese Kennedy teaches students some basic moves and then encourages them to explore the music and develop their own movements in reaction to it.
