What we do?
The School runs with hourly classes based on age and ability. We teach a variety of disciplines including: (see sections below for these classes)
Classes commence with a warm-up to aid the muscles in every part of the body while working on flexibility and technique.
Our classes are set out so that there is continuity from term to term and from year to year. Students are regularly assessed and will always be placed in a class where they can work to their best ability and gain a real sense of accomplishment.
The most exciting highlight for all of our members is the end of year performance. We encourage parents and family members to attend this performance and view the students progress and see them working in a live professional setting. This is always an amazing spectacle, lavish costumes, stunning scenery, thoroughly professional production and is loved by audiences of all ages far and wide.
