Assistant Teacher Program
DanceStep program is utilised at the studio. Students complete theory lessons through their online course and are required to assist in a practical lesson once per week with their studio to consolidate the theory learning.
The Cecchetti Classic Ballet is the most important training technique used to assist in dance development.
Our jazz program is a mixture of many things that just keeps evolving – cabaret, musicals, film, video clips and ballet.
Hip-hop is a dance style, which is usually danced to hip-hop music that evolved from street/pop culture.
Tap is back and cooler than ever with a new style, ‘street tap’. A new generation of tappers has emerged with Australia’s own Dein Perry taking it to a new level.
Contemporary dance pushes the boundaries of dance. It is a highly technical form, requiring alignment, balance, coordination, control, flexibility, strength and stamina.
Acrobatics is the performance of extraordinary feats of balance, agility, tricks and motor coordination. It also enhances the wonder and freedom of movement.
