Styles of Dance

Ballet

Ballet is identifiable by its grace and fluidity of movement. Ballet has many specific technical qualities such as understanding correct body placement, use of turn out, coordination of the upper body (epaulement), and use of arms (port de bras). Benefits of ballet include good posture, balance, and strength. Our ballet classes follow the IDTA syllabus ensuring the correct techniques are learnt

Commercial Jazz

Commercial is known for its high energy and sassy styling. It originated from Urban styles of dance such as Hip Hop and Street and has evolved with a more theatrical Jazz style. It’s the type of dance seen in music videos, on the catwalk and at fashion shows,. Commercial is the most current and popular style of dance. The classes consist of confidence building exercises to enhance performance and choreography exploring different dynamics of movement and isolations

Acrobatic Arts

Acrobatic arts is a captivating form of performance that seamlessly blends elements of dance and gymnastics. It offers a unique and exhilarating experience, focussing on developing strength, flexibility, balance and agility while incorporating artistic movements into routines. Acro classes provide a safe and structured environment for students to learn acrobatic skills, from basic balances and handstands to advanced aerial tricks. These classes also emphasize teamwork, discipline, and self-confidence, as students work together to master challenging moves and create stunning choreography. Acrobatic arts are a fantastic way to express creativity, build physical prowess, and foster a sense of accomplishment, making them an exciting option for young dancers.
