: Classes & Times

Weekly Lessons, 8 -18 years

Each weekly lesson commences with a warmup. After the warmup, classes are divided into sessions which focus on different dance styles including jazz, tap and hip hop to build fitness and technique.  Each individual class is taught by a specialist in that style. From time to time a different style of dance may be incorporated in the weekly lesson. Boys are expected to practice throughout the week, as little as 10 minutes/day. Throughout the year, parents are invited to a short demonstration class to see the progression of their son.

Weekly Lessons, 6-7 years

Weekly lessons (1 hour & 15 mins) run the same as the older sessions, however boys at this age only study two different dance styles each week and rotate through all dance genres during the term.

For all levels, we also recommend that stretching each day just before bed is very beneficial, and relaxing.

 “It was incredible. Especially since they only have one class a week” PARENT commenting on the Demonstration Shows

“I don’t know what it was but I enjoyed today more than my daughter’s dance concerts. I’m not sure whether it was because it was all boys or because of the lighting or aesthetics, but I just loved it.” PARENT commenting on the Demonstration Shows
