CLASSICAL BALLET: (RAD & ACB) Classical ballet is at the core of all dance forms, it is a beautiful and highly technical art.

We also offer a classical extension program via our Classical Academy.

 

JAZZ:  Jazz class with current music and a focus on commercial dance as seen in live performances, world tours, and television. These classes also incorporate leaps, turns and flexibility training with an emphasis on learning choreography and developing style.

TAP: (ATOD Syllabus) Tap dance develops children's sense of rhythm and musicality as well as being great fun! Classes incorporate both old style and current style - from musical theatre styled tap to upbeat street tap. Our Tap students also have the opportunity to take tap exams under the Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD).

 

CONTEMPORARY:  Originally based on ballet technique our contemporary classes focus on developing a strong contemporary style and understanding of all areas of floor work and choreography.
