Adult Recreational
Most studios offer dance classes for children only over the age of 2, but essentially learning and
development takes place even before then.  This class is designed to offer an opportunity for baby
and mom to bond together in an atmosphere filled with creative movement and dancing.  Mom and
child follow along with the instructor who guides the parent/tot team in a way that makes
discovering movement, balance and listening skills easy and fun.  This class is an excellent first
group activity.
Kid-bop is a perfece way to start your journey in dance.  It is a fundamental dance class designed
for those who are brand-new to the dance world and a class room setting.  Basic steps and
routines are taught in a fun way that helps each child learn how to follow directions, develop
self-awareness in dance, and understand rhythm.  Several short routines are learned throughout
the course and is geared to training your child into the next stage in their dancing career
Level II takes the most popular dances and teaches the basics of each one, separately throughout
the course of the season.  Students will learn the basics of Ballet, Jazz, Hip-hop, and Power tap
(clogging).  Also, this class teaches a short routine with the skills the dancers have learned with
each genre of dance.  This is an excellent way to allw exporation into several types of dance in one
season, enabling them to decide which style they find most appealing  for the future.
Idaho Rhythm is the premiere studio in the Treasure Valley and beyond for clogging.  This is
consequently our most popular class. Clogging is percussive, high energy dance that combines the
rhythm of tap with the aerobic of hip-hop, and includes the precision of most team dances.We are
the only studio in the area to offer all 6 levels of clogging instruction, from novice through the
professional level.  Students begin at the novice level divided by age, and progress themselves to
each of the consecutive levels.
What is the difference between Jazz and Hip Hop?

Jazz style of dance is what is seen in many Broadway type shows such as “Cats”.  It is a more
structured, stage style of dance.  

Hip Hop is a fast, high energy type of dance seen in music videos and commercials.We have
modified our hip-hop to include fun and challenging moves, without resorting to immodest dress or
behavior, regardless of a student's age. You need not be worried about the dance music, style, or
costume your child will be seeing or wearing when they dance with Idaho Rhythm!

Jazz/HipHop class
This beginner program allows students to take the 2 most popular forms of dance in one class.  
The jazz/hip-hop class teaches fundamental jazz steps and combines the elements of hip hop
moves and contemporary music.  We have found that the combination of jazz and hip hop is ideal
for this age.  Students learn the necessary elements of jazz which are crucial to success in hip
hop, but also get to learn hip hop moves which require the coordination and balance learned from
