Want to get fit? Want to have fun? Want to learn the correct jazz dance technique? Want to try out different styles of dance from jazz, contemporary and street to musical theatre? Want to perform on stage EVERY SINGLE TERM? Want the chance to perform on a huge stage infront of a large live audience? Then THIS is the stage school for you!
Our dance classes are taught by the higest callibre of dance teachers, who are experienced in their field, energised and encouraging.
Each week the children will take a full warm up, working on their flexibility and stamina. This is followed by our technique time - in which the children learn dance steps which are incorporated in the widely used dance exams and tradiotnal syllabus'. Then its time for fun as the children work on learning and perfecting their dance routines, in preparation for the end of term show. This show can vary from our in house technique demonstrations, to our musical shows, to our yearly Gala competitions.
At present we have chosen NOT to enter our children into exams. Our reason for this - simple - we want our children to learn but we don't want to add any unecessary stress. Over the years we have seen children finding school life more and more pressurised. From their SATS exams through the mocks and GCSE's, children seem to be feeling the stress of all their school tests, and so we want our club to be a stress free environment. Saying this, the children do still have to learn routines as they are performed on stage in fron of a live audience. We do install good habits and expect high levels of focus and attendance, but we don't add the stress of having to sit infront of a stranger and prove yourself. As we have stated above, we do follow the dance exam syllabus in our classes so the children are in fact keeping up with other dance schools who insist on exams, but we keep things happy and simple. After all - isn't it about having fun?
