Dance Lessons

We offer basic and advanced instruction, from little ones to those students planning a professional dance career. This dance instruction includes all aspects of classical ballet technique as well as modern, jazz and character dance. The program is complemented by courses in dance, history, music, choreography, special conditioning and other related subjects. Students are also provided guidance from the School's staff and professional consultants.

Stage 1

In the initial phase, students are introduced to dance based on their musicality, physical ability and coordination. Students study basic fundamentals in dance, modern and jazz etc. A selected number of students who demonstrate strong interest, talent and willingness are invited to continue their training in the next stage.

Stage 2

Students who show interest and promise are invited to focus on classical ballet as well as character dance, modern and jazz. Students attend classes on a regular basis and may need to increase the frequency of classes. The students will be auditioned for and been placed in such company productions as Nutcracker and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Educational Role

As Dance is an integral part of a child's educational experience, we aim to enhance the children's self-discipline, self-confidence and sense of achievement through the structure and demands of dance training. We expect children to do well in their schoolwork in order to stay in the program as most children progress academically while in taking dance lessons and many schools and parents have attributed this success to the program.

Continuation

Evaluation and assessment of children by our faculty and staff is an ongoing, multi-faceted effort. A child's continuation is based on his/her talent, interest and willingness to participate. These three categories indicate a match between the child's needs and our ability to meet them.

Independence

The children themselves, with help and advice from family and teachers, are to a large extent in control of how much of their dance potential is reached. The decisions they make about their own behavior, attendance, homework and school work play a role in the children's continuation in Dance
