Our students continue to develop their ballet technique in an age appropriate manner. We combine ATOD (Australian Teachers of Dancing) and RAD (Royal Academy of Dancing) syllabus into our classes. Classes are more formal and are divided into Barre, Centre Practice, Adage and Allegro. We offer ATOD Ballet exams in May/June.
We offer Fusion Star classes which involves Tap, Jazz and a little Acro and stretching in the class.
Tap is best described as "musical feet". Tap is a form of dance where dancers use their feet as percussive instruments. Tap Shoes are worn with metal plates on the toe and heel to assist in making the tap sounds. Tap is great for fostering rhythm in dancers. We offer Tap exams.
Jazz pulls from all dance styles mixing them together to create a high energy style that knows no boundaries. Jazz is most often set to up beat popular songs of the time. Jazz shoes are worn with a leather split sole allowing the dancers foot more freedom to bend and move. Due to the upbeat music, power packed moves and limitless style, it isn’t hard to see why this is the most popular dance style! We offer Jazz exams.
Hip-hop is a very energetic form of dancing. It is unique in that it allows its dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities. New hip-hop dances are created all the time, and some recent popular forms include the Milly Rock, the Dab, Hit Dem Folks, the Drop, the Nae Nae, and the Whip.
Acro is a style of dance that combines classical ballet technique with fluid acrobatic movements. It is very physically demanding and requires strength, control and flexibility.
Musical Theatre involves singing, acting and dancing. We offer Musical Theatre exams at the end of the year.
