Street Dance is a fun way to improve fitness, confidence and Stamina. Classes start by building core strength, timing and
attitude moving on to our advanced level which includes fitness & gymnastic development to produce a higher level of choreography for medals.
Our ballet classes are artistic, performed to music, using precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. Here at All Sorts we follow the UKA Dance Syllabus who offer fun medals for students not wanting to take the grade route. This commences with The Princess or Pirate Award.
Ballet is a great way of developing core balance, Strength, Discipline, Creativity and the understanding of the terminology performed. This style is good grounding for the development of dance throughout.
Freestyle Dance Gym is a very popular form of dance. It involves runs, spins, kicks, Flexibility, Gym Skills and leaps, as well as many other steps & movements.
The music can be fast or slow allowing Students to use freedom of expression to enhance their performing skills.
Mini Gym & Beginners
Within the mini's & beginners class we start from basic shapes and positions which they can then build on and put together to make a routine and help with their learning and discipline in other areas.
Gymnastic Advanced Classes
Within the classes students work from basics and build on skills whilst still maintaining the skills they already have. We work on perfecting their technique within these skills and ensuring they have the pre-requisites to develop these skills further.
By perfecting their technique with some skills, it allows for them to find harder skills easier when it comes to them learning them.
I have also started using the UKA acro syllabus for the pupils to begin following from and creating routines involving these skills for when they begin to take part in medals.
We work on strength and flexibility also by doing conditioning throughout the sessions and making this fun and interesting by turning them into circuits or games.
Tap Dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal "tap" on the heel and toe. This class looks at fusing the tap style with Street, Musical Theatre and Commercial Dance. This is a great class for the progressive dancer wanting to further their knowledge and skills in the performing arts
