A classical dance form encouraging grace and precision using steps and gestures set in flowing patterns to create expression through movement. During this class students will be taught good posture through the use of lengthening and extending from the top of their heads to the tips of their fingers.

Although musicality and expression are key values of this dance technique, ballet is the foundation of every dance style.

A free and expressive style of dancing.  Jazz has become one of the most popular dance styles in recent years, mainly due to its popularity on television shows, movies, music videos and commercials.

Jazz dancing is a form of dance that showcases a dancer’s individual style and originality. Every jazz dancer interprets and executes moves and steps in their own way. This type of dance class is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. To excel in jazz, dancers need a strong background in ballet as it encourages grace and balance. A fun dance style that gives the dancer the chance to improvise and use original dance steps.

A dance performed wearing shoes fitted with metal taps which make rhythmical tapping of the toes and heels. During the tap class students will be listening to various sounds and rhythms and responding with the use of the taps on their shoes. This class encourages rhythm, timing and musicality with a fun and relaxed style giving each dancer their own individuality. A great way to let your feet have their say.

Adult Classes

We offer a fun way to exercise with friends and improve those moves to impress on the dance floor. This class is about keeping fit and having fun at the same time.
