Intro To Dance
This class is designed for our younger dancers. With use of props and fun music we aim to give the children an enjoyable introduction into the world of dance. Our classes are a mix of Jazz, Ballet and Tap and will help the young dancer decide what genre they would like to move on to when they are old enough. These classes are suitable for ages 2-4 years.
This dance form is fast and fun! Learning to turn and leap along with intricate arm and footwork has never looked so good! We have two classes available for both junior and senior students.
If your child would like to sit dancing exams we offer an exam class teaching from the NZAMD syllabus. For the junior school this is based on ages, for the senior school it is based on ages and on previous exams sat.
We also offer a non exam based class for those that don’t want the pressure of having to sit examinations, children in this class will still learn all the correct technique and be at the same level as their peers that are in exam classes.
