Junior Ballet and Tap


These classes teach children good ballet and tap technique.  We strongly recommend that all children take these sessions as they teach the foundations that are used across all styles of dance. All students are given the opportunity to take ISTD or IDTA ballet and tap examinations. 


Junior Modern Jazz & Acro Dance


This is a progressive class where the children work on developing their flexibility, strength, leaps and turns.   Students work on free work as well as the IDTA Modern Jazz syllabus and have the opportunity to take IDTA examinations and medals.  Acro Dance is a combination of the artistic qualities of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics.  We follow the Acrobatic Arts programme.


​Junior Bopz Musical Theatre & Street Dance

This class combines drama, singing and dance.  Musical Theatre works on songs, scripts and dance routines from a range of well known musicals.  The street dance section is fast paced and child will learn new and funky moves dancing to the latest pop tunes.  Skills taught focus on improving eye-contact,  building self-confidence, developing creativity and social skills development.
