This is something as a school we feel very passionate about, especially as dance classes become part of a child’s life, it is always good to have something to show for their commitment.

This style is seen in musical productions and can be further developed into more specific styles such as Commercial and Street as students mature. This style works on motor skills such as travelling steps and turns them into dance. It also works on strength and flexibility by using movements such as turns and jumps. Ballet Dance Ballet Dance is a very well known style, working on grace and control in one’s movement. This style uses arm positions and varying leg lines to create an effortless image. Ballet technique is an important part to any dancers training. Learning the basis of any dance form and developing the strength and control required in any dance style. Ballet is recommended alongside any other style of dance. Tap Dance Tap Dance is another dance form seen in musical productions. A dancer uses their feet to create sounds on the floor. The dancer creates different rhythmical patterns by wearing tap shoes which have metal plates on the ball and heel of the foot. The musicality required for Tap Dance also aids a dancer in their musicality in other dance forms. Pre-Primary Ballet and Modern An introduction to the world of dance and music.
