Children's Dance Classes

 

Age 18 months to 3 years Parent and Toddler Dance Class

 

Fridays at 10.00-10.45am

This class is interactive with mum, dad or an accompanying adult. We copy and join in moves and actions with songs and use props too to improve coordination, stimulate rhythm and basically have lots of fun. We use a variety of music and dance subjects in the class from pop to Latin, to lyrical, using themes from films and nursery rhymes you are sure to recognise.

 

3 and 4 Years Olds

 

You have a choice of "Baby" classes for children of 3 & 4 years old in either Ballet, Tap, Disco/Freestyle Street and Ballroom and Latin American or there is also a "Combo" class with tap, ballet and modern combined in one. All classes have an emphasis on fun, developing natural movements through mime and song into dance movements, improving self-confidence, coordination, helping children make friends and learn how to take turns and share, as well as improving their communication skills. Children take part in our annual Christmas Show.

Drama and Singing Classes (Musical Theatre)

 

As a guide the Drama and Singing classes are for 7-18 years old for those already studying dance with us.

 

Both classes must be taken together in addition to an existing dance class because choreography will be part of our musical theatre numbers.  All classes work on show work predominantly with non show term classes covering acting for stage and camera, improvisation, stage combat and script work for Drama and Singing classes working on technique vocal warm-up exercises and building a musical theatre repertoire from popular shows.

 

As well as our main shows, Musical theatre students have an additional cabaret evening and musical production reviews for just the Drama and Singing Classes. Students and parents should realise the increased level of commitment required to be part of these classes, near to the shows there are daily rehearsals after the end of term for a full week up to the production. Theatre trips are organised periodically to go and see West end shows. This class only takes new members at certain times of year between shows, please enquire if interested.
