The daily workshops consisting of Contemporary Dance, Jazz Dance, Ballet, Commercial and Choreography led workshops:
Contemporary Dance will explore self-expression through organic, free flowing abstract dance vocabularies. Classes will include centre work, travelling sequences, and movement combination.
Jazz Dance will focus on commercial entertainment and musical theatre styles. Jazz dance aims to challenge dynamic range and increase the subtlety of performance qualities.
Ballet is taught as a foundation skill, emphasising posture, alignment, placement and footwork. Classes will consist of barre work, centre work, traveling steps and classical ballet variations.
Commercial workshops will consist of the creation of a commercial piece including different styles such as street dance, hip hop and other popular styles seen on TV and music videos, channelling high levels of physicality and energy into performance.
Choreography sessions will encourage students to define a personal creative movement vocabulary. This work will be developed through improvisation and creative tasks.
