Ballet

 

Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. Classical dance training develops posture,poise an confidence.

         Whilst aiming to portray grace,elegance and fluidity of movement,ballet also builds on core strength,control,muscle tone,discipline and stamina .

       Perseverance is essential in order to grow as a ballet dancer,and the long term benefits,especially for those wishing to explore other styles of dance,are second to none.

Tap

 

Think tap,and think of the little penguins in ‘Happy Feet’.Tap is the feel good dance form allowing the feet to explore rhythm and musicality.

      Useful for beginners to ‘find the beat’ and develop listening skills. Also ,a great way for adults to workout as an alternative to the gym.

      From the traditional Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire Musicals,to today’s hardcore ‘Stomp’ and  ‘Tap Dogs’,Tap has something to offer everyone.

Theatre craft

 

 

Theatre craft explores the many exciting and contrasting dance styles of the world of musical theatre. From Disney to Bollywood ,showgirl to rockstar, no stone is left unturned.

   This recently updated syllabus focuses on theatrical performance. The technique is based on natural movement, progressing to include lyrical, jazz and commercial styles, as the grades develop.

         From grade 3 onwards the girls get the chance to dance on heeled shoes,and the boys are given their own feature to show off developing tricks and specialised skills.

      Theatre craft is ideal for anyone interested in broadening their dance horizons.
