We offer tuition in ballet, tap, modern jazz, acrobatics and stage performance at our studios within The War Memorial Hall, Dorothy Avenue, Glen Parva.
BALLET, TAP and MODERN JAZZ
We are registered with the British Theatre Dance Association (BTDA) and teach their programme of studies which are excellent for all ages.
The younger dancer commences their journey learning in a fun way to appreciate the joy of dance and music. The begin to learn basic steps, start to develop technique and get used to the exam experience with BTDA's brilliant preliminary exam and medal system.
Dancers then go on to graded exams which are accredited by the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and are designed to be progressive from grade 1 through to grade 8 enabling students to develop and master technique, build strength and flexibility and enhance performance skills.
Vocational exams are available for those wishing to further their dance training leading to a diploma in professional development. We also offer teaching qualifications leading to a diploma in dance teaching and management. They can also gain UCAS points which may help them to secure a place at university - visit BTDA for more information.
AWARDS & MEDALS
In addition to formal exams, dancers can take rose awards, crystal awards and a range of medals designed to build confidence and develop performance skills.
Dancers can take part in our acrobatic classes where they will learn a variety of tricks and balances. It is a great way to increase flexibility, build strength and develop teamwork.
The emphasis in these classes is on developing performance skills. Dancers learn skills in singing, dancing and acting and have the opportunity to take exams in all elements of musical theatre.
The highlight of the year is the annual show where the children can present all that they have learnt to entertain friends and family.
We use a local professional theatre and all children are encouraged to take part as it is such a fun and rewarding time, they all absolutely love showtime!
