Below please find the current schedule for our Dance classes.
Ballet (Cecchetti) - NURSERY, PRE-PRIMARY, PRIMARY, GRADE 1
We believe that ballet provides a strong technical foundation, and that performers enrolled in ballet will become stronger, faster! Students will study classical ballet using the ceccheti method, where emphasis is placed on proper posture and alignment, correct and safe technique, self-discipline, grace, poise, and a genuine sense of performance. A solid foundation in dance is similar to the ground floor of a building. Remove it and the entire structure would crumble. Putting effort and focus into your foundation will build a strong facility to showcase your art! Please note, students at the Grade 1 level (exam-based) and above are required to take 2 classes per week. Grade 1 students, who do not wish to take exams, can attend the available Open classes.
Modern Theatre Jazz - NURSERY, PRE-PRIMARY, PRIMARY AND GRADE 1
This innovative, high-energy performance discipline combines upbeat movements and rhythms with contemporary music. Emphasis is placed on technical execution while encouraging strength, coordination, flexibility, fluidity, and style! Modern Theatre Jazz explores the many different styles of dance in musical theatre! We look at a variety of choreographers, their styles, and the impact they have had on the world of Musical Theatre. Please note, students at the Grade 1 level (exam-based) and above are required to take 2 classes per week. Grade 1 students, who do not wish to take exams, can attend the available Open classes.
Contemporary dance is a genre of dance performance that developed during the mid-twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world. Although originally informed by and borrowing from classical, modern, and jazz styles, it has come to incorporate elements from many styles of dance. Due to its technical similarities, it is often perceived to be closely related to modern dance, ballet, and other classical concert dance styles.
Hip - Hop - (3 - 6 yrs, 7+ yrs)
URBAN HIP HOP OR COMMERCIAL HIP HOP
Highly-energetic, fun, and funky, Hip Hop is a dance style, fusing elements of jazz, street, and break dancing. Students will be exposed to a variety of styles, and encouraged to develop their strength and personal freestyle
Artistic Movement - (3 6 yrs & 7+ yrs)
D-Impact School of the Performing Arts is offering an exciting Dance and acrobatic movement program of 75 minutes for 3 - 12 year olds!
This program explores the fundamentals of ballet and modern dance in a fun and creative way for 45 minutes. Young dancers will get the basics of dance under their belt while being engaged physically, mentally, and musically. 45 minutes will focus on the floor portion of gymnastics where one will learn a variety of acrobatics, including walkovers and balances.
Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole. Although musical theatre overlaps with other theatrical forms like opera and dance, it may be distinguished by the equal importance given to the music as compared with the dialogue, movement and other elements. Since the early 20th century, musical theatre stage works have generally been called, simply, musicals.
Individual Voice sessions
We will encourage and show you how to use all of your body and senses to listen, respond and support your singing as you start a fascinating vocal journey. Great singing is as much about listening as vocalising. We believe that ‘good vocal technique’ is really a much more natural position to sing in than the poor, ingrained vocal habits we choose to inflict on ourselves!
Creative play is a vital part of childhood and child development. Through creative and imaginative play children can grow emotionally, socially, intellectually, and even physically. Creative experiences help a child develop these skills and enable them to share their thoughts, feelings and ideas. Exposing children to creative opportunities contributes to, and furthers their development. Coming up with ways to play creatively doesn’t have to be stressful or take a lot of time. In fact, over-structuring is the opposite of creative play. Every small step toward developing a child’s skills is a major milestone in their growth and happiness.
