: Through ballet and modern based movements, the children are
given an introduction to dance. They explore how their body moves and
become aware of the space around. They will respond to the music creatively
as well as learning to listen and follow instructions. While having fun,
they begin to experience working as partners, in a group and individually.
Emphasis is on understanding correct technique and attaining maximum personal
levels of achievement. Line and quality of movement will be strived for
and, especially in the lower grades, we encourage freedom of expression
through dance. As all dance forms feed into one another, from
primary level we recommend that children learn tap and modern to supplement
their learning in ballet.
As the children become older they learn more technical and complex movements.
Pointe work is included from Grade 5 ( but is not compulsory)
The modern grades develop strength, flexibility and artistry through a
series of carefully constructed exercises and dance movements. Various
styles are covered including contemporary, lyrical, blues, jazz and funky
hip hop. A strong understanding of classical technique is required.
Therefore it is prefered that the student studies ballet to take grade
2 modern plus.
Learn to make rhythm with your feet. This class is normally combined with
Modern or Ballet.
For example: 42nd Street, Tap Dogs and Riverdance. Teachers use the ISTD
syllabus to gradually introduce a tap technique that focuses on correct
weight placement and alignment to enable students to achieve sensitive
tonal quality and neat and clear footwork. These skills will enable students
to tackle combinations set to any music and style.

Boxing, Breakdancing, Popping and Locking are used to create one of Studio
