Classical Ballet is the foundation for most styles of dance. Ballet taken in conjunction with other forms of dance will assist student in accomplishing dance goals quicker. We have ballet classes for beginners, juniors and seniors. We follow the BAL (Ballet Australasia Limited) Syllabus.

Tap is about making music with your feet, it's a great workout, particularly for your legs. Tap classes will develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. Class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, while having fun! Students wear shoes with metal tap plates. Tap is a good contrast to the ballet, the kids get to make noise and have fun in a relaxed yet disciplined environment
Hip Hop is a street style of dance incorporating Popping, Locking and Urban Funk, performed to hip hop music or other styles of music.

Contemporary dance is a more free form of movement, tending to be a fusion of ballet and jazz. Focusing on alignment, balance, flexibility and strength. There are many different styles of contemporary dance which encourage self expression, natural movement and personal interpretation, integrating style and emotion.
