Classes are typically structured with a warm-up, suitable for students of all ages and is safe but will increase heart-rate also.
Ballet classes are kept classical and we work on all the usual areas of bar work as well as turns, basic pirouettes and turns, and a short dance routine. All this enhance core and posture, strengthens muscles and slowly develops flexibility.
For the regular dance classes, after a good warm up, we then go onto teach a dance routine where we teach technique,presentation/expression and musicality. Technique for steps and movements follows the IDTA Freestyle Dance curriculum which includes turns, and steps/movements specific to the dance style we are teaching. This is then followed by a cool-down and a quieter finish to the session.
We usually teach one dance routine per term to keep things fresh and interesting.

Open level classes for all adults
Our first ventures into Adult Dance Classes, after much demand from parents, have been an outstanding success! We cater to all abilities and levels and as per our ethos, are totally all-inclusive. The dance styles range from musical theatre to Bollywood, Street Dance to Swing. We also run an Open level ballet class for adults.
Emphasis is on general fitness, suppleness, coordination, building core strength and general all-body strength. Dancing is a great and engaging way to keep fit and healthy. It is not only good for our physical state, but also for our mental health.
As we develop these classes, we can see offering dance in all genres too, such as Salsa, Tango and Line Dancing. We are particularly keen to offer classes for the more elderly who are often overlooked when it comes to suitable dance classes.
For those that are keen there are opportunities for an end of term show, and also opportunities to perform at local village events!

Things to bear in mind
The dance class level is set to an “Open” level class where anyone can come in and learn the routine. The emphasis is on fun rather than pressure to dance at any high level. We work on technique to improve our bodies for dance and do what we are learning well, rather than push or challenge everyone too much.

“The adult dance classes have been so much more fun than I expected! I’ve always loved dance but was unsure about my abilities and how I would feel dancing in a whole class of others. However the class teacher keeps this light and fun, and I’m building my confidence and starting to feel really great! I highly recommend anyone who is unsure to give them a try. I can’t wait until next term!”
