We offer jazz, ballet, lyrical, contemporary, tap, hip hop and acro classes for our 10-12yrs age group. We offer lessons for recreational dancers as well as the more disciplined dancer. This is the age that students begin developing their own personal style. We nurture this by offering classes where students can express themselves in the styles that they choose whilst working on their technique development.
Jazz is a fun and active style of dance, combining technique and personality. The style involves learning how to execute turns, kicks, leaps and jumps, as well as learning to dance to different rhythms.
Lyrical and Contemporary styles involve technique and precision as well as allow students to express their personalities through movement. These styles aim to improve quality of movement, expression on stage, and improve turns and leaps specific to contemporary and modern styles.
Tap is an energetic and performative style involving learning to work with rhythm and beats in music. We follow the Glenn Wood Syllabus to provide a great foundation for tap technique for our students.
Ballet is the foundational style for all forms of dance. We use the ATOD Classical Syllabus guidelines to provide foundational technique, which focuses on teaching safe dance practices and promoting gracefulness in movement.
Acro involves improving strength and flexibility to improve acrobatic skills such as handstands, cartwheels, walkovers, backflips, headstands, aerials and many more, with the aim that these skills will enhance dance routines. We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus to ensure proper technique and safety of students.
Hip Hop is a strong and active style of dance encompassing different influences of street dance, break dance, popping and many more different styles of Hip Hop. This fun and lively style involves confidence and power.
We also provide a Boys only class to encourage more boys to become involved in dance, as well as to promote teamwork, building confidence and having fun.
Musical Theatre classes involve learning to dance in a more theatrical style. It involves utilising both the jazz style of dance and portraying a character to musical theatre songs.
Technique classes involve building and maintaining strength and flexibility, as well as applying these foundations to dance skills such as leaps, kicks and turns.
Stretch and Strength aims to promote fitness and fun to improve students’ strength and stamina. It also focuses on improving flexibility and the ability to use strength and flexibility in practice.
Performance troupes involve working together in all styles. Being a part of performance troupes involves working as a team and committing to rehearsals and performances throughout the year.
These classes are suited to dancers that are highly motivated and dedicated to their dance practice. Students will learn routines for various performance opportunities throughout the year, and will work as part of a team. In these classes students are highly encouraged to improve their dance foundations and technique, as well as nurture their passion for performance and dancing onstage.
Private lessons are offered for dancer that are looking for a more personalised and individual dance lesson. These lessons are suited to the needs of each dancer as an individual and can be highly valuable in the development of technique and skill progression for students.
