Our combination classes are great for the younger dancer, they love the variety and challenge of the different dance genres.
Aged 7-8 years
Junior Dancers combines Modern Theatre Dance with Ballet and Tap in a 90-minute class, with 30 mins for dance each style.
The last of our combination classes, after which all classes are individual disciplines. This is a key transitional class.
For students aged 8+ we offer dedicated Modern classes in the ISTD syllabus grades 2-5.
Typically, Grade 2 starts at age 8 and Grade 5 is pre-college level. However, progression through the grades is based on ability not age.
This class is a vocational level class and is for the most advanced modern students who have already achieved their Grade 5 or equivalent.
Intermediate Modern is a requirement for any student wishing to go into teaching dance in the future.
For students from 8 years old. This is a really fun and high energy class for all levels of ability and experience.
Each week we teach a segment of choreography using the ever evolving umbrella of Jazz dance, such as Lyrical Jazz, Musical Theatre Jazz and Commercial Jazz.
This is a super fun class for all levels of ability and experience. Jazz is a style of dance you often see on stage at the west end.
Each week we teach a segment of choreography as well travelling combinations and technique exercises, all to upbeat music and with a sprinkle of sass!
