(YR 7 +)
In Acro Dance classes students learn Gymnastics floor skills which can be performed in a dance. We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus. Students develop core strength, control and flexibility, and learn correct technique for handstands, cartwheels, walkovers, aerials (cartwheels and walkovers without hands touching the floor), partner work and more. Before our Mid-Year and End of Year concerts students learn a class dance to perform, showcasing their Acro skills.
Ballet classes follow the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and give students the opportunity to participate in annual exams. Ballet technique is essential to excel in all other styles of dance and for students wishing to pursue a career in dance. Ballet improves posture, flexibility, grace and body awareness. Students perform a dance at our Mid-Year and End of Year concerts.
Commercial Jazz and Musical Theatre Jazz are taught in our Jazz classes. These styles are sharp and energetic. Students learn technical turns, kicks and leaps and develop strength, coordination, flexibility, rhythm and musical awareness. For our seniors, this class is a fun and physical opportunity to keep in touch with the dance friends they have grown up with (especially if they are now at different high schools). Students perform a dance at our Mid-Year and End of Year concerts.
LYRICAL & CONTEMPORARY
Lyrical and Contemporary are expressive forms of dance, building on the foundations of classical Ballet and Acrobatic technique. This class is ideal for Jazz students who would like to improve their technique and for Ballet dancers looking to improve their expression and fluidity of movement. Students perform a dance at our Mid-Year and End of Year concerts.
