PRE-TEEN DANCE, ACTING & SINGING CLASSES

GRADE 4 RAD BALLET

Ballet is a graceful and elegant form of dance. It strengthens the legs, helps to develop muscle tone in the areas that are required to display strength from the dancer and is fantastic for alignment, posture and flexibility. Grade 4 expands on your pre-teen’s existing knowledge and skills to prepare them for their examinations and learn new movements.

ACTING

Acting can instil confidence, prepare your child for a life on-stage or in front of the camera, and have them audition-ready. Script reading, acting technique and auditioning are all taught by our talented staff who are professionals at their craft and will encourage that same wonder in your child.

PERFORMANCE JAZZ

Performance jazz is for the more advanced students who are working on routines for competitions and events. They are extra classes on top of their regular jazz class for extra training and ultimately to become a better performer. Practice makes perfect!

PREE-TEEN MUSICAL THEATRE

Musical theatre combines dancing, singing and acting to arm your child with a sound knowledge in each three categories. Teaching various Broadway dance numbers to songs from a large assortment of musical theatre performances plus acting scenes, your child will be well on their way to becoming a musical theatre pro.

STRETCH AND TECHNIQUE

Stretch and technique is an important class designed to give your child the time to heal and learn the proper movement. Flexibility, learning how to stretch out their body properly and technique tuning are all important elements in order to shape them into becoming their best performance self.

PERFORMANCE LYRICAL / CONTEMPORARY

Lyrical and Contemporary go hand in hand with contemporary’s earthiness and the expressiveness characteristic of lyrical dance. Your pre-teen will be coached through proper floor work, improv and adaptability to rhythm and direction changes in their contemporary training, and how to express their emotions and put it all into their dance when studying the lyrical component of the class. Taught along with our regular lyrical and contemporary classes, these can be added on as extra coaching for students who are preparing for upcoming competitions.

GRADE 5 RAD BALLET

Grade 5 ballet is when your child can begin to decide whether they want to continue their classical training as their hobby or for a more serious reason, such as a potential career. Ballet is a demanding, all-in commitment, but its rewards are a firm grasp of discipline, grace, strength and technique. Grade 5 exam preparation as well as new positions and movements are taught in this class. Advancing to pointe shoes (dependent on each child’s strength) can begin to be discussed with the students and parents for this class and in future for grade 6 ballet.

OPEN TAP

Tap dance involves the musicality of the dancer and strength in their feet to be able to perform intricate footwork to music. Whether your pre-teen is new to this class or is a continuing student, they will continue to strengthen and develop their core, balance, agility and footwork while learning broadway and street variations of tap.

OPEN JAZZ

Jazz dance is steeped in history yet continues to remain a relevant and ever-changing dance form. From the jazz performed throughout the early 20th century, it has evolved to become one of the most broad-ranging styles of dance. Your pre-teen will continue their training in isolations, body movements and step progressions as well as strengthen their technique and rhythm.

OPEN HIP-HOP

Hip hop is characterised by its freestyle movements and use of R&B, pop, house and club music. Popping, locking and breaking will be coached through with your child until they start to develop their own sense for the style and unique expressions and movements.

SINGING 

Singing is a key component in many performing arts careers, from going on to become a singer to a musical theatre actor. It teaches students breathing techniques, gives them a taste to develop their own musical interests and helps them find their voice. Music from various artists to shows and songs from movies will be rehearsed with your child to strengthen their overall performance.

INTERMEDIATE ACROBATICS

Acrobatics involves balance, stability, flexibility and foresight. Through tumbling, jumping and flying your child will learn to test their skills developed in a safe and friendly environment. Circus and gymnastics training as well as acro dance techniques will go up a step so that your pre-teen can increase their strength and take their performance to the next level.
