Jazz  

Preschool & above             

All students at DANCE1 MUST take a jazz class. An energetic, up beat & bouncy dance style - Jazz is heaps of fun! Classes are structured to incorporate limbering, strength work, choreography & skill building.

Jazz is included in the following combo classes: 'TinyBlast', 'MiniBlast', 'DemiBlast' & 'DanceBlast'.

Modern 

Kindy & above

An expressive form of dance that offers an expansive range of movements and themes. Based loosely on the fundamentals & technique of Classical Ballet, Modern dance develops fluidity, grace, poise and expression. Modern is included in the following combo classes: 'MiniBlast', 'DemiBlast' & 'DanceBlast'.

Our ADVANCED DanceBlast classes have a strong Contemporary component.

Tap Dancing

Kindy & above

A very popular form of dance and great exercise! Lots of rhythm, beat & sound exploration. Older tap students study a variety of different Tap genres including Hoofing, Broadway, Traditional and of course a more commercial, current style to keep us up to date.

Tap is included in the following Junior combo classes: 'MiniBlast' & 'DemiBlast'.

DanceBlast

Year 4 & above

Without a doubt, our MOST POPULAR class!! A 1½ hour class combining Jazz, Broadway & Modern styles, DanceBlast is a great way to add diversity to your dance repertoire. Our ADVANCED classes include a Contemporary component & require enrolment in a Technique class.

Broadway Jazz

Year 4 & above

This style of Jazz is only offered in our 'DanceBlast' classes. Think Broadway musicals, big stage numbers, high performance and LOTS of character.

A great exposure to a variety of genres & our dancers LOVE the performance aspect of this class!

Contemporary

Year 7 & above

An artistic and inspirational style of dance drawing elements from both ballet and modern to form a completely unique and beautiful genre. Lots of contract/ release, fall & recovery work as well as unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed and intent.

Contemporary is looked at in ADVANCED 'DanceBlast' classes ONLY and requires enrolment in a Technique class.

Hip Hop & Urban

Kindy & above    

A mix of Hip Hop, Funk and Street. Bust a move like they do in your favourite music video or pretend you’re on stage with your favourite singer. All the latest moves from Kindy & up, age appropriate music & choreography ALWAYS used.

Technique

Year 4 & above

Combining Classical Ballet, Yoga & Pilates, this class works primarily on technique, flexibility, stability and extension work. For those who love their barre, centre & corner work. Older students in Year 7 & above will look at Contemporary dance practices, focusing on floor work, fast transitions and safe technique.

Students who participate in 'DanceBlast' + Technique + one other dance style will be eligible to participate in our end of year concert’s OPENING NUMBER!!

Ballet
Kindy - Year 3

Available in our ‘MiniBlast’ class (Jazz/Ballet), this style looks at the foundation, precision and formal repertoire of classical Ballet. The perfect stepping stone to our Technique classes which are eligible for dancers in Year 4 & above. Think barre work, adage and petite allegro.

ACRO for Dance (ADTA Syllabus)

Kindy & above

A style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. Acro for Dance is an especially challenging dance genre requiring strong technical training in both the dance and Acro fields & while it shares some ‘tricks’ with Gymnastics , its technique is much more ‘dance’ specific.

 

Students wishing to add ACRO are required to first enrol into a

standard JAZZ class.

 

Acro students in Year 7 & over will also focus on aspects of Conditioning,  stretching and strengthening to help them master the foundations needed for the Acrobatic tricks.

 
Private Lessons

Available to all students in any style of dance.
