This is the most commonly recognised form of ‘Ballet’ where students learn proper stance to produce movement with lightness, speed, grace and strength. Confidence and posture are greatly enhanced by classical ballet and students can master other forms of dance with ease.
The most disciplined and rewarding of all dance forms, classical ballet is where the foundations of correct dance technique, alignment and strength are taught. Class begins at the barre where the student gains strength and balance. As class progresses, the same exercises are repeated but jumps turns and balances are added to produce flowing movement. Students are taught to stand correctly without tension, which eventually becomes a habit; and to stretch and lengthen muscles. Students learn to activate muscles in co-ordination with this proper stance to produce movement of technical proficiency. Students also learn to analyse movement.
A more modern free form of dance than classical ballet or jazz, although technically very demanding. Students with a strong classical background quickly grasp the technique of contemporary as these forms of dance complement each other. Contemporary is recommended for the student who is seriously considering a career in ballet or dance.
Many children and teenagers find jazz enjoyable for fun and fitness. At the same time they develop the posture and co-ordination for everyday life. Jazz involves stretching and strengthening the body, and then learning amalgamations, turns and jumps that will be combined in a performance routine. It is recommended that jazz and classical techniques be learnt together, as they complement one another
