This program has been specially developed for children aged 3-5 years, introducing them to the magic and fun of mime, music and dance. Your child has the chance to sample ballet, jazz and tap. This gives them a taste of the different styles of dance. All children love to dance to music and have fun. This is the perfect pre-dance program for them. ATOD syllabus exams are available.
Ballet provides the foundations for excellent technique, body placement and strength. Ballet will compliment and strengthen all other forms of dance training and dance technique. Whether or not you have the desire or potential to be a ballerina doesn’t matter - there are lifelong benefits of good posture and poise. ATOD syllabus exams are available.
Contemporary has solid foundations in Classical Ballet with strong emphasis on technique, strength and precision. A very expressive and emotional form of dance, soft flowing and lyrical dance combinations.
Hip Hop is a street style dance that is more widely used in music videos and commercials. Hip Hop is great for anyone who loves to dance. It is fun, energetic & boundless.
Tap is an exciting rhythmic exercise and dance form. The classes stress the basics of tap and build into combinations which are great to watch and delight to hear. ATOD syllabus exams are available.
Jazz is a continually changing and evolving genre, encompassing many styles such as Broadway, Musical Theatre, Funk and Lyrical. Jazz classes are a great workout and a fun way to release tension while attaining a body awareness the can be applied to everyday activities. ATOD syllabus exams are available.
Examinations are available for all students in our own studio. The process is professional, supportive and encouraging, with effective reporting. It is not compulsory to sit examinations, however we do encourage that students do sit exams, in order to develop their confidence and skills.
The exam candidates receive a comprehensive report to assist in their progress and to indicate how they have performed in the exam. They also receive a Certificate and Medal.
There is nothing more satisfying than working hard in lessons in order to take what is learnt to the stage. Being part of a performance team, gives the opportunity to perform around the community and compete in Eisteddfods. It teaches students to be part of team, working together for the same goal. An audition process is required.
