Classical Ballet is the foundation for all dance. 

Classes will emphasise technique and correct body alignment along with flexibility, strength, grace, co-ordination, musicality and performance quality. 

Students will have the opportunity to take examinations under the IDTA examination system once they have reached the required standards in each grade. The examinations are not compulsory and those not wishing to take examinations will move to the next class along with their peers providing the level is achieved.  

In addition, we also offer open ballet classes which are not examination classes but focus on development of further technique, these include pre pointe and pointe.

CONTEMPORARY DANCE

Explore the world of contemporary dance with George. 

Focusing on floor work and travelling combinations this is the perfect class for those exploring contemporary dance for the first time as well as experienced dancers looking for a fun and enjoyable class. 

It is also useful for students studying, or planning to study, GCSE Dance. 

Suitable for students aged 13+.

 

FREESTYLE JAZZ & COMMERCIAL DANCE

Freestyle dance developed in the early 80’s. Today backing dancers seen on television and shows will be dancing some form of freestyle dance, although the majority of these dancers will also have studied ballet and other dance forms.

Our classes are energetic and fun and focus generally on current trends and styles in music and dance. 

As the students develop the classes are then based more on Commercial Dance, which can be ‘anything Commercial’. 

Medal tests are offered in this subject should you wish to take these or just come along, learn to dance, meet new friends, have fun and exercise.

STREET HIP HOP DANCE

Our Hip-Hop Street classes are extremely popular. Street dance covers a variety of ‘Street’ styles and we cover and develop a range of these in class. 

Medal tests are offered in this subject should you wish to take these or just come along, learn to dance, meet new friends, have fun and exercise.

Contemporary Modern Jazz

Contemporary Modern Jazz is a fun and exciting dance genre, hence its popularity. 

You will learn to develop many different movements reaching to a broad choice of varying rhythms and musical styles. 

Classes are structured to begin to prepare the physical strength and flexibility required to demonstrate emotion through interpretation of any musical genre and is a great introduction to contemporary dance. One minute you may be dancing to the rhythm of a drum, the next to a funky jazz style. You may explore contrast between expansion and relaxation or learn to isolate in a slick stylish mood. 

Modern Jazz follows a syllabus set by the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) and students have the opportunity to take graded examinations.

Tap Dance

Tap Dance is an enjoyable form of dance which we introduce initially for reception age children as part of their weekly class. It is ideal for developing rhythm in the young child. As the students’ progress their skills and style in the technique will develop. 

Students will have the opportunity to take examinations under the IDTA examination system once they have reached the required standards in each grade. The examinations are not compulsory and those not wishing to take examinations will move to the next class along with their peers providing the level is achieved.
