Within our classes students will learn the following styles

Ballet – Ballet gives a foundation of arm and leg movements. Posture, musicality, strength, footwork, timing, and overall performance is taught helping with progression in other forms of dance.

Cheer Dance – Cheer-Dance is based on a combination of cheerleading moves. Students learn a variety of high energy routines performed to current pop music. Whilst learning about group formations with shapes and patterns.

Contemporary – Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements and expression.

Freestyle – Freestyle dancing is complete improvisation of movement by the dancer. Fast freestyle is performed to fast music incorporating gymnastic movements. Dancers do not plan or choreograph their motions beforehand and there is not a rehearsal of the routine.

Jazz – The use of rhythmically complex and syncopated movement using a combination of ballet technique with elements of contemporary and African derived dances. The Jazz style of dance is what is seen in many musical theatre productions. It is a more structured, stage style of dance.

Lyrical – A very precise dance with the dancer’s movements portraying the emotion and story of the song. It is a combination of ballet, jazz, acrobatics and modern dance and the result is a style that focuses on strong emotion as well as a more individual approach than some dance styles.

Tap – Tap dance is a performance art that relies on dancers creating catchy rhythms with their feet. This is characterized by tapping sounds made with the feet. Tap dance is known for its syncopated, catchy beats and improvisational choreography, which links it to jazz, musical theatre and pop music.
