ballet

Classical ballet is offered from age 5 to advanced level. Ballet is the core subject of dance and it is highly recommended that every student participates in ballet.

Ballet develops not only technique, musicality, good posture and strong muscles but also grace, flexibility, co-ordination and knowledge of our bodies. The classes are structured in a way that shows discipline but also knows fun, allowing students to develop, create, and learn.

Pre-pointe & Pointe

Pre pointe and Pointe classes are offered at the teachers discretion, usually starting at pre-teen, for dancers who have several years of ballet experience.

Classes are carefully crafted to introduce students to the artistry and technical demands of dancing on pointe shoes. We prioritize the safety and proper development of each dancer, ensuring a gradual and thorough approach to this advanced form of ballet.

These classes will concentrate on strengthening of the feet, legs and core. Along with continuing to develop technique, alignment, and the endurance demanded by pointe shoes.

Tap

Rhythm, rhythm, rhythm! Students will learn the fundamental techniques, intricate rhythms, and dynamic choreography that define this timeless dance form.

Our classes incorporate games, upbeat music, and interactive activities to keep the energy high and the smiles even higher. The classes develop musicality, co-ordination, agility, and syncopated rhythms!

Tap classes are offered from age 5 to advanced level. 

Jazz

An upbeat dance class, featuring lots of high energy steps and technique practise. 

Classes focus on flexibility, technique, elevation, turning techniques, and stamina, and incorporate the use of current chart music along with some all time favourites. We emphasize the importance of rhythm, coordination, and personal expression, fostering a love for dance that extends beyond the studio.

Jazz is offered from age 5 to advanced level.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop dance is forever developing and changing, and is a very popular type of dance. It is very high energy and incorporates varied techniques, ranging from popping and locking to free style and break dancing.

Hip Hop is offered to students age 9 years and up. In class we work on specific warm up techniques and develop isolating the body. New steps will be broken down and we always finish with a hip hop routine to current trending music.

lyrical

Lyrical dance is a great way to learn about self expression and how we incorporate that expression when dancing.

This style uses the techniques learned in such classes as jazz and ballet but allows fluid, free movements to create something meaningful.  Lyrical is also great for limbering the body and creating suppleness. The slower paced music allows our bodies to connect to the music, whilst also showing grace and freedom.

This class is offered to 9+.
