As our dancers grow, we have found their interest in a pure classical ballet approach to be feigning. We are passionate that ballet is an essential foundation on which all dance styles are formed however, when we produce routines for our annual show we always adopt a more contemporary approach. We have therefore decided to alter weekly classes to cover more techniques, making our dancers more technically versatile. Rather than ‘ballet class’, we would like it to become a ‘dance class’. In this dance technique class our dancers will cover the following:
- Classical ballet technique
- Contemporary dance technique
- Acro/gymnastic skills
- Yoga/pilates exercises
- Creative, choreographic tasks
We feel this will not only give our dancers a varied class each week that will be thoroughly enjoyable, but also allow them to explore movement fully & develop creative skills alongside their physical abilities.
