Ballet is a very highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French Terminology. It is an artistic dance, which uses precise and highly formalised set steps and gestures. We follow the I.S.T.D syllabus in class, the syllabus promotes the English Classical style of Ballet and addresses the changing needs of Ballet Dancers today.

 

Tap

Tap has evolved as an American Dance form, popularised throughout the world by fantastic dancers such as Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Tap dancing uses the foot to strike the floor, creating a beat and making different rhythms. We follow the I.S.T.D syllabus, which really helps the children to break down beats and rhythms easily making tap fun and enjoyable.
