CLASS DESCRIPTIONS 

GIRLS JLH (Jazz, Lyrical & Hip Hop)

Girls participating in this carefully designed program will delight in becoming stronger, more flexible, skilled in new areas, and confident in their dance ability, with a tribe of friends in a welcoming and supportive community. Girls will enjoy discovering skills to boost their confidence, self-esteem, resilience and optimism through Tanya’s Empower Dance Program in the creative and non-competitive social environment of the dance class.

ACROBATICS

Students participating in Thursday’s Acrobatics class will enjoy the strength, flexibility and extra skill level this class offers. Focus is on establishing strength foundations to build up to skills like handsprings, aerials and tricks. Students wishing to build on their ability to do breakdancing power moves will have the opportunity to do this in the class. Each student progresses at their own rate and in 2021 assessments will be conducted to make sure goals are being reached. 

BOYS HIP HOP/BREAKDANCING

Boys participating in this uniquely designed program will be impressed by the strength, flexibility and level of skill they acquire in a short space of time. The structure of this program inspires rapid progression, creativity, teamwork, confidence, and motivation to practice and perform skills as often as possible. The comradery the boys experience through mentorship, friendship and the welcoming and supportive community at the studio, is an important and valued aspect of the program. Program content includes strength and flexibility training, power moves, popping, waving, locking, freezes, top rocking, choreography and freestyle at different levels (see levels for reference).

BOYS CREWS

ACTIONITED Junior Crew and ACTIONITE Senior Crew classes offer students excellent potential for growth, improvement, progression and mateship. Crew members possess a strong desire to improve, learn new moves, and gain confidence through performing. The crews collaborate with the teacher, and each other, to produce the routines and are encouraged to use their creative skills in choreography and freestyle sets. Crew boys will also be invited to train for breakdancing battles and comps (if they wish). These classes require a strong level of commitment to the class, to their crew and to consistent improvement.

TECHNIQUE

Students participating in this innovative program will be captivated and challenged with the collective techniques of Jazz, Lyrical and Contemporary dance. The structure and content will inspire the students to explore turns, leaps, body awareness, strength and flexibility. A fantastic outcome of this class is the considerable increase in co-ordination and spatial awareness. Students will enjoy the variety this class offers and the opportunity to explore moving to different styles of music.

This highly popular combined class for both boys and girls challenges and inspires students with a variety of routines and techniques like Grooves, Popping, Waving, Locking, Breaking and Lite Feet moves.
