Style of dance that is graceful but precise, with emphasis on using traditional French terminology to teach positions of the feet, arms, and body. Music played during class includes traditional classical, upbeat instrumentals and/or popular music. Ballet classes also explore flexibility training and basic contemporary technique.
Typically energetic style including sharp, powerful movement and positions influenced by upbeat music. Students will learn various jazz dance styles like traditional jazz, funk/street jazz, theater jazz, Fosse technique, etc. (Must be enrolled in ballet to take jazz classes).
Street dance styles that emphasize improvisation (freestyle) and creative, bold expression. Styles include, but are not limited to, breaking, popping, locking, tutting, lyrical hip-hop, and some popular/trending moves.
Tap classes are designed to develop rhythm, style, and sound. Students will learn how to make rhythmic sounds with the “taps” of their shoes, while focusing on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement.

Opportunities to build relationships with dancers and staff who share their interest in performance art.
Training that enables dancers to pursue collegiate/professional level performance art paths
Our dancers are taught by high quality staff who have advanced degrees in dance and child development and years of training/teaching experience! As a result, our training has given Mayne Attraction dancers the opportunity to participate in the following dance programs:

Debbie Allen Dance Academy
The LA Establishment
World of Dance
I've known Sharmayne for years! I saw how great she was with the kids in the arts department at our church, so I knew my daughter would be in good hands when I brought her to Mayne Attraction. Saleah loves it here, and her growth as a dancer continues to amaze me!
I’m thankful that Evelyn and I are a part of Mayne Attraction, and that she regularly interacts with people who truly care about her wellbeing. I believe her training will help her in many ways, even outside of dance.
I loved how welcomed Jo and I felt when we first met Mrs. Sharmayne! Mayne Attraction is the perfect place for Jo, and her technique continues to grow each dance season. She spends so much time here, and has made so many friends, that Mayne Attraction feels like a second home!
Shar & Sassy"Heals"
Shar & Sassy Heals allows women (ages 17 and up) to use dance to find sisterhood, empowerment, healing, and growth. Dancers will learn basic technique (walking, posing, and turning in heels), followed by a beginner friendly, sassy heels routine. Great for dancers looking to review the basics, those who are just getting started, or for those who want to ease back in after some time away from dance (heels are optional).
