Jazz

Jazz is one of the most popular dance styles of all time. Jazz is a fun and energetic style of dance that allows students to dance to their favourite singer, showtunes, RnB, or even some classics. In this class dancers will learn the foundations of dance including how to kick, turn and leap.

 

Tap

In tap, students use their feet like drums to create funky rhythms to music. Teachers will show students how to brush, shuffle and ball change, and learn many more moves made famous by tappers such as Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and more recently The Tap Dogs. The studio follows both the ATOD and Glen Wood Tap syllabus.

 

Ballet

Ballet is one of the oldest forms of dance. Ballet is a graceful form of dance that allows dancers to tell a story through movement and music. Based on techniques developed over hundreds of years students will learn the basics of ballet as well as more advanced movements as they proceed through their grades. The studio follows the Australian Teachers of Dancing syllabus and offers exams to those who would like to participate.

 

Hip-Hop

Hip-hop has quickly become one of the most popular styles of dance. Students will learn how to move just like the characters of these very popular movies. Students will learn how to pop, lock, break, and slide.

The Bloc is leading the way in hip hop with its Hip Hop crews being crowned national champions in 2017.
