At Dance Unlimited, we follow the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) ballet syllabus.
Ballet offers a strong technical foundation for all dance styles. It teaches good posture and strength whilst working on grace, musicality and self-discipline.
We start classes from preschool ballet (from 2 ½ years) through the grades and up to intermediate. Every child progresses through the grades and we hold examinations at regular intervals.
These are fun, lively and energetic classes to current music. Pupils learn a variety of styles, such as street, hip-hop, freestyle and lyrical. Disco helps to develop the dancers’ musicality and confidence in a fast paced class full of energy.
Classes start for children as young as three and go up to an advanced level.
We work towards regular ISTD Disco exams and our children get to progress through the medals. Pupils also have the opportunity to take part in ISTD Disco Competitions competing in the set dance, solos, pairs and team categories.
Acrobatic Dance, or acro as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professionals, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of gymnastic skills and tricks. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements to music.
Students will begin with basic stunts such as forward rolls, cartwheels, and beginner balances. More advanced students will continue to add to their repertoire with more advanced tumbling, balances, and partner lifts/stunts.
Dancers who train through the Acro syllabus have balanced development, are stronger, more flexible and fearless. They are more technically skilled, have fewer accidents, and are less likely to develop chronic injuries. It is great fun!
