WHAT WE DO
The Academy teaches all levels of Modern, Jazz, Ballet and Tap dance including boys and adult classes. It also offers tutoring in professional examination classes for students wanting to become qualified dance teachers. It is the Academy's vision to make each class fun but disciplined, and to pass on the knowledge and passion of dance to all students.We take pride in having small classes to provide quality and attention to detail with our students.
Tap helps dancers develop good rhythm, which then carries
over to help them with other styles of dance as well.
Coordination, balance and musicality are results of
Ballet is the basic foundation for most forms of dance.
Students learn how to correctly align the body while working
in “turned out” positions. Good posture, discipline and artistry
are results of learning Ballet.
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that
combines elements of several dance styles including Modern
Jazz, Lyrical and Ballet.
