Modern dancing is a great compliment to ballet and allows children to push the types of movement they can include in routines that ballet alone does not allow for. Our modern lessons are engaging and friendly and we actively encourage the children to pursue their own creations in addition to the syllabus we teach when working towards grades or performances.
We teach to the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) standards and look to progress our students through their grades at a pace that suits them. We will not push our students just for the sake of taking an exam, we'd rather find a balance where pupils can progress and enjoy their dancing at the same time.
Dance is a performance art and we like to encourage and create opportunities for our pupils to perform to a live audience. We hold a showcase for parents to see their children perform their class work and exam preparation every other year. We alternative this showcase with the dance schools main show, which we hold at Christmas time. The show is a full production and will be on a theme chosen and designed by the teachers, so that all the pupils can have a part to play and be involved. Our 2015 show was inspired by Peter Pan and called 'The Adventures of Neverland'!
