It is free from the sometimes rigid structure seen in other styles and allows the dancer to connect feeling and intent to their movements. Contemporary dance tends to be a little more abstract, more often performed to instrumental music, whereas Lyrical often uses music with lyrics, drawing on the emotion of the music for inspiration. Both variants focus on floor work, the use of gravity and learning to let go of the body.

 

Hip Hop 

Our Hip Hop classes are a great combination of Hip Hop, Breakdance, Pop and Street Funk, exposing students to all aspects of this exciting genre. Hip Hop is an extremely popular style with todays youth and can mostly be likened to what you  might see in film clips. These classes are fun, youthful and fresh and provide our students with the skills they need to dance in the industry today.

Acrobatics

Acrobatics is a great addition to dance, as it enhances agility and strength. Students who take acrobatics learn how cartwheel, barrani, walkover, somersault etc., all tools they can use to compliment their dance training.

Competition Dance

Students who show strong technique and performance skills have the opportunity to compete in eisteddfods as soloists. These students are those that show a great amount of commitment to their dance training and may be aiming towards a career in dance. Because of this, soloist positions are offered by invitation only.

Ignite troupes are open to all students (with a certain level of ability and experience) We compete in eisteddfods and perform at local fetes and events throughout the year.
