Technique Classes

Fine tune and develop skills


Technique Classes

These classes are available in all genres fine-tuning the technical skills required to be a successful dancer. Students are taught work that in some cases can be used in exams. All competitive students are required to attend at least one technique class per week in the corresponding genre. Eg. for Tap performance you must also attend a tap technique class.

Classical ballet plays a major role and forms the basis of all facets of dance. Classical dance teaches the student correct poise, deportment and musicality whilst developing technique relevant to all styles of dance.
