Mini Dance 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.
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 learning them.
We 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
Jazz dance is fast and fun. It uses upbeat music and leaps and turns.
