Classical Ballet

Ballet is the core training for all dance disciplines and the children are taught within the I.S.T.D. syllabus. It encourages grace, balance and core strength essential for all genres of dance. Along with acquiring a sound basic technique, children will also develop their co-ordination skills and the ability to express themselves musically.

Modern Theatre

Modern dance is an energetic and theatrical style of dance which teaches the children the foundation for jazz dance which can be seen in many West End and TV shows. The classes involve leaps, high kicks and turns to modern music which develops their strength, flexibility and co-ordination as they progress through the grades.

Tap Dance

Tap is a fun, rhythmical style of dance which develops the childrens’ natural sense of rhythm. The dancer wears shoes with metal plates on the toe and heel so that they can use their feet to strike the floor beating out different rhythms.

Jazz

Children learn to dance in many different styles including commercial, blues, street and lyrical dance to their favourite modern music.

Musical Theatre

This is one of our most popular classes including all three disciplines, dance, acting and singing. The children develop their self confidence by taking part in group drama activities and then solo acting roles as they progress. Songs from many favourite West End shows are taught and combined with commercial dance movement encouraging the children to characterise whilst performing. Older students are also helped to prepare songs and monologues for auditions to gain entry into professional training colleges.
