Pre-school ballet is an introduction to music and movement incorporating the basics of ballet using stories and play. The class prepares children for the entry into primary ballet, by learning how to interact with other children on their own without their parents.
Getting your children involved in these classes will help to develop their self confidence from a young age and will also develop their motor skills for later life.
The class is always full of fun and enjoyment and quickly rewards a sense of achievement developing self-confidence and expression.
Achievement in Ballet contributes to a learner’s all-round achievement, as it helps to develop competencies such as motor control, health and safety awareness, self-expression, physical fitness and stamina, discipline, mental ability and confidence.
We offer Graded examinations and Presentation classes for students from the age of six years and Pre-Primary in Dance and Primary in Dance examinations and class awards for students from the age of five years.
Learning ballet requires patience and continual study over time. It is recommended that the commitment for students studying for a Graded examination or Presentation class should be a minimum of one class a week with extra coaching in the period leading up to the examination, particularly as the student progresses towards the higher levels.
Street Jazz is a high energy and stylised class, with a mixture of both popular urban style of dance that has inspired music videos by artists such as Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Rhianna, and Jazz Technique inspired by the West-end musicals. Classes are a combination of exercises which work on posture, flexibility and strength and routines which children can learn which incorporate movements from both techniques to all to your favourite commercial and popular music tracks.
There are no set exams for Street Jazz but there will be a chance for the children to work towards Street Jazz competitions, where the children work together to produce their own routine to perform in front a panel of judges to get the chance to win the Splitz Studio trophy. All children are welcome from beginner to advance level split into different classes starting from 4 years upwards.
Using the LAMDA syllabus our Musical Theatre Classes are about building confidence through movement, acting and singing.
It has been developed to build the skills necessary to communicate the dramatic content of musical txt over a range of musical styles/categories.
Students will build on voice, diction, movement, setting and staging, and musicality.
Limited class sizes ensure that each child gets the specific development and professional education they need to follow their dreams.
Tap Dance is a demanding technique, teaching students to become percussive musicians as they learn complicated rhythms using their feet.
Following the ISTD Tap Dance syllabus, students develop the skill and understanding of tap dance at the same time as building a sound technique, by developing the physical ability to communicate through movement in an expressive and artistic way.
A clearly defined structure allows learning to take place in the context of safe dance practice.
The Acrobatic Arts programme of Acro Dance is designed to strengthen dancers and enhance their existing skills with basic acrobatics.
Dancers work with a variety of strength and flexibility exercises designed to create a well balanced dancer with additional flexibility, strength, balance, limbering and basic tumbling skills.
