Class Descriptions

Classical Ballet Program - All levels

Structured classical ballet classes taught using Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), Cechetti and Australian Teachers of Dance (ATOD) training methods. Classes are designed to give students a strong basic technique with a full vocabulary of movement and exercises for the development of strength, balance, poise and elevation. Exams are available and offered at each level with gradual build up through the grades. Exams are optional, but encouraged.

Jazz, Tap, Contemporary and Lyrical

Specialist teachers provide students with high-level technical training that is designed to build strength and fluidity of movement and enhance individual artistry and creativity. Exams are available in Jazz, Tap and Contemporary.

Junior Drama

Young children love structured play! Junior Drama introduces children to imaginative play, simple character work and the basic elements of performing with the body and voice for an audience. Games and simple acting exercises build confidence and co-operative skills in an atmosphere of fun and self-disciplined play. We give shy kids the confidence to speak in front of others; we teach chatterboxes there are times to be quiet and listen to others.

Intermediate Drama

A strong focus on building confidence through drama games, activities and performance skills. Students develop confidence in group co-operation and creative problem-solving, imagination, and graduated exploration of role play in groups and individually. Includes script work, voice work, mime, mask, improvisation and character work.
