Classical Ballet: Classical ballet has long been considered the foundation of all dance styles. It assists in developing correct posture, weight placement, coordination, core strength and control. Students who take part in ballet classes are trained in the Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD) method which is recognised in dance circles throughout Australia and in many other parts of the world. Students participating in ballet classes will also have the opportunity to sit examinations
Acrobatics: Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context. Using the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus students will work on many different elements such as strength, balance, limber & tumbling in their Acro classes.
Contemporary: Contemporary is an ever-changing dance style that encourages free and expressive movement.
Tap: Tap is a percussive style of dance that is performed wearing specially designed shoes with small metal tap plates attached to the soles of them. Tap classes will help students to develop rhythm and musicality whilst using their feet as the instrument!
