Classes

Classical Ballet (Borovansky)

Classical ballet provides the postural control, strength and co-ordination required for all dance styles.  Students trained in classical technique progress with far greater ease in jazz & other dance styles.  Ballet also instils discipline, deportment skills and respect for teachers and fellow students.

Jazz

Fun and fast moving, jazz combines popular music with choreography inspired by video clips and recent release music. This style usually starts with an aerobic warm-up then works on flexibility, isolations, co-ordination, turning and travelling skills. We study the Asia Pacific Dance Association (JazzAddict) syllabus, an exciting and theatrical style of jazz that incorporates musical theatre, lyrical routines and encourages students to build on their choreographic techniques.
