Class Descriptions

Tiny Tots Ballet, Musicality and Movement (from 18 months to approximately 3+ years) Our Tiny Tots Class is designed with our youngest little movers in mind to help develop confidence, balance, and musicality whilst at the same time having lots of fun! We explore movement and music through basic dance, singing, playing instruments, etc. Parents/carers join in with their little ones for a fun experience. This class is a great little workout for everyone – always lots of smiles and giggles!

Children’s Ballet, Tap and Jazz (from Pre-School to teens) These classes are combined classes (studying all three genres) so that children get the skills and experience from each type/style of dance. Classes are structured and follow the  IDTA (International Dance Teachers’ Association) syllabus, which is based on the very latest teaching ideas and techniques. As part of our class we also enjoy exploring free expressive movement and fun exercises. The IDTA is one of the world’s leading dance qualification awarding bodies and a membership association for professional dance teachers. My classes are specifically structured to encourage children of all ages.

Musical Theatre and Drama If you enjoy singing, dancing and acting then this class is for you. We explore drama, through fun games, improvisation and other exercises; dance, through song routines and general movement to music; singing, by learning songs from favourite musicals and shows. A fun class that helps to develop confidence, skills and talent.

Contemporary / Modern Jazz Dance Contemporary / Modern Jazz is fun. You will learn to develop many different movements reaching to a broad choice of varying rhythms and musical styles. Classes are structured to begin to prepare the physical strength and flexibility required to demonstrate emotion through interpretation of any musical genre. One minute you may be dancing to the rhythm of a drum, the next to a funky jazz style. This class provides the opportunity to react and interact with other members and really dance to express your feelings.

Open Tap Dance (Adults/Teens) Classes are formulated to suit the absolute beginner, to returners wising to develop their skills, to the more experienced dancer who wants to enjoy tapping. Classes will be structured to include some syllabus work but are generally designed to be a fun learning experience for everyone. All ages are welcomed to come and enjoy dance!

Open Ballet (Adults/Teens) This class is structured to support the absolute beginner as well as those returning to ballet. Classes include a variety of exercises and syllabus work as well as learning simple enchainments and dances. All ages are encouraged to enjoy moving whilst improving fitness and strengthening those core muscles.

Open Jazz (Teens/Adults) Have fun learning dance routines and amalgamations to modern/popular and chart music. Develop and improve your dance skills and have fun with your friends whilst learning new steps and moves.

Zumba Kids® Children of all ages love our Zumba Kids® sessions – we learn some great dance routines and fun moves as well as playing dance/fitness games. What better way to have fun, improve fitness and make new friends?

Adult Zumba®/Zumba Gold®/ Dance Fitness/Senior Fitness What better way to keep fit than through dance? Dancing doesn’t make you feel like you are exercising – it’s designed to be fun. Simple “copy me” routines are used and  Zumba® adds a Latin flavour to our workout. These classes are much more fun than going on the treadmill or being shouted at in a Personal Training session! . For adult beginners and/or seniors we offer dance fit sessions incorporating “Zumba Gold®“. Any of my Adult Zumba sessions can be easily adapted to suit individual fitness and ability levels.
