SENIOR DANCE, ACTING & SINGING CLASSES

JAZZ

Jazz is an exciting and ever evolving dance form. At LAUNCH, we encourage our senior students to embrace their individual style and expression whilst focusing on developing technique and movement quality. We place an emphasis on rhythm and proper execution of body isolations, line and progressions whilst instructing our students in a fun, challenging environment.

TAP

We emphasise the development and strengthening of basic tap technique highlighting the importance of rhythm and sound. You will focus on rhythms and intricate footwork creating a percussion instrument out of your feet. LAUNCH will teach you everything from Broadway tap through to street tap.

BALLET

Beauty, flow and elegance are inherent elements of ballet. At LAUNCH we use ballet as a technical base to supplement other dance forms such as contemporary. Traditional barre work, centre work and combinations are included in all classes.

HIP-HOP

A high-energy dance class that looks to current R&B, House, Club and Pop. Hip hop utilises the music, forms and movements from various genres to impart technique and style filled with poppin, lockin and breakin as well as freestyle. If you are looking to dance for Instafame, this class is for you!

CONTEMPORARY & LYRICAL

Contemporary is an earthy dance style combining ballet technique and naturalistic movement. Gain inspiration from the original master Martha Graham through to the choreographers of today, like Mia Michaels. Lyrical uses the words of music as inspiration for expression and gesture through ballet. Jazz, modern and contemporary technique. This is a beautiful style of dance that allows you to be totally free with your emotions.

BROADWAY JAZZ

In this class you focus on the dance component in specific musical theatre numbers from various shows, emphasising performance and characterisation skills. This class caters for those passionate about musical theatre, for actors and singers who want to improve their dance and movement skills and for those who just can’t get enough of musical theatre.

BROADWAY MUSICAL THEATRE

This class varies from broadway dance with a greater focus on all three skills required to become a ‘triple threat’ – dancing, singing and acting. This class will teach you different dance numbers, acting scenes and songs from a vast array of musical theatre shows.

PROGRESSIONS

An extremely important class for those passionate about their dance skills. This class offers different combinations of kicks, turns and jumps that will only help to enhance your jazz technique.

COMMERCIAL JAZZ

Commercial jazz is everything you see in the music industry today. LAUNCH Performing Arts Centre is extremely passionate about this style and specialises in investing in the technical training required, from those who have made a living being a versatile performer.

STAGE & SCREEN ACTING

Stage and screen acting is taught by our industry professionals with a wide range of experience. Acting for stage involves plays, musical theatres and productions, and acting for screen encompasses television, movies and short film. You will learn all the tips and tricks of the acting trade as well as how to be audition-ready.

STRETCH & TECHNIQUE

For dancers, the most important thing they can give their bodies is time and proper stretching techniques. In this class dancers from all other dance forms are encouraged to learn stretching techniques that will benefit their bodies and enable them to become more flexible dancers, as well as learn proper turnout.

RAD BALLET – OPEN

Open ballet allows dancers the freedom to not have to participate in ballet examinations whilst furthering their skills and strengthening their body. Classes are open to any age group looking to improve their ballet movements and technique or for a social, active and challenging class once or twice a week.

INTERMEDIATE RAD BALLET

Intermediate classes are available to students who have completed the Intermediate Foundation examination or achieved RAD Grade 6 ballet. A mix between pointe shoe work and flat shoes, this class focuses on developing the dancer’s skills to a higher level and overall strengthening of the body.

ADVANCED ACROBATICS

Acro dance, circus and acrobatic techniques and tricks are taught in this advanced class. Students learn how to push themselves and their acrobatic flair within a safe, monitored environment and test their coordination, agility and balance for taking on the harder tricks.

SENIOR SINGING

Singing is used as a base to supplement other performing arts classes such as musical theatre, acting and Broadway jazz. Singing students will learn a range of songs of their choosing, and be taught how to properly warm up their vocal chords, and various vocal coaching techniques.
