Acrobatics training teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline and concentration as well as spatial awareness.  


The high degree of discipline and concentration required for acrobatics carries over to many aspects of a student’s life, including academics and other athletic performance.


Acrobatics provides the foundations for further gymnastic skills but most importantly it shares in the benefits of working within a team environment.


We start by developing the basic balletic exercise for feet, legs, hands and arm extensions, both at the barre and in the centre.


Then we move onto skills requiring focus on coordination, strength, and control in all five ballet positions.

ATOD and Cecchetti Ballet syllabus is taught to include barre work, centre floor work also including adagio, allegro, and progressions across the floor.


Mixing incredible athletics with intuitive rhythm control our Hip-hop lessons are fun, and extremely popular classes for boys and girls. A definite favourite amongst this age group, this class is inclusive and age-appropriate.


Students will learn the latest moves from your video clips to super funky routines to all the latest music available.


We focus on singing, acting, and theatre skills in our Glee programs.


Students learn how we can combine these all art forms to tell stories.


These classes help give students a broad knowledge of the art form covering a vast range of styles and shows as well as helping them build confidence and discover their skills.



This class allows the dancer to learn more about his/her body. They are taught to isolate, activate and condition deep muscles. They establish core stability and the mind-body connection. that is so important for dancers.


Tone and elongate muscles, balance strength with flexibility. This class enables you to maintain a healthy active body.


It is compulsory if undertaking the Elite team and is a great benefit for any student for recreational classes or elite training.


Contemporary is an expressive dance form with a free, artistic and creative feel.


Contemporary draws a lot of its technique from classical ballet but unlike ballet, contemporary often focuses on floor work and dancers will usually perform with bare feet.


This class is an extension of ballet and therefore a Ballet core class must be taken to enhance technique for all students taking a contemporary class.


Our jazz classes including technical elements such as isolations combinations, kicks, points, plie and releve, basic positions and the development of flexibility, balance, coordination, and control.


This leads onto jumps, leaps, turns and complex progressions increasing coordination and flexibility.



Our tap classes start with the most basic elements: rhythm and timing.


We combine toe and heel beats, springs, steps, ball change, and combinations, leading onto more complex rhythms, timing, and variations in speed.


Later we incorporate single, and double step times, wings, grab offs, turning steps

Private Lessons

We offer various private one-on-tuition in the following areas:

Singing: If you’re enthusiastic about vocal training, our private lessons will guide you through the wonderful world of the music – learning how to explore and test the boundaries of your vocal instrument.

Dance: Private lessons help improve confidence and help children get ready to move into a certain class. They also help when preparing yourself for a competition or performance or wanting to upskill.

Violin: Violin Lessons are a great way to learn new musical skills and develop motor and cognitive skills. Many students benefit from engaging with instrumental practice in a fun environment. Students will build on confidence, fine motor skills, understanding musical concepts and creativity. The benefit of having private lessons is that the foundational technique can be monitored very closely, and aids the student in developing their skills correctly and more quickly.
