The essence of a dance class is to take a pupil physically, musically and technically through a recognised syllabus. Generally after twelve months pupils successfully achieve an examination certificate, the taking of exams is of course down to personal choice.
The RAD syllabus takes pupils through barre work, centre work, adage and allegro movements in each grade. Pointe work is introduced after Grade 5 and when pupils are physically ready.
Tap is great fun. Pupils love to be able to hear the sounds coming from their own feet. We follow The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing syllabus. Tap is great for keeping fit, strengthening all parts of the body and acquiring excellent co-ordination as well as improving natural rhythm.
Modern Theatre Stage Dance is a structured syllabus which takes pupils correctly through steps, jumps, spins, and sequences. The style ranges from lyrical to Jazz forms. It teaches rhythm, line of movement and a wide variety of steps used in stage and theatre productions.
Pupils learn fun and contemporary routines, choreographed to current chart music, which help improve co-ordination, balance and spatial awareness, while developing strong motor skills.
