Our Ballet classes are set to music using precise and highly formalised set steps, exercises and gestures. We teach Ballet as it gives us the best grounding for every other dance style. It gives us a strong core, good posture, turnout and musicality.
Ballet is magical, exciting and also fun.

Contemporary dance incorporates many different styles of dance such as ballet, jazz and modern but was created mainly by a mix of ballet and modern. Contemporary has strong and controlled legwork that is similar to that of ballet. Unlike ballet, it involves improvisation and versatility, instead of the structured ways of ballet.
Also, contemporary puts a lot of stress on the torso, along with contact and release and floor work. Along with ballet, contemporary gives a great grounding for all other dance styles!

In terms of dance, Jazz is an umbrella term that can refer to several related dance styles. All of the styles are connected via shared Jazz technique and the students cover a range of these styles.
