Modern dance emphasises a strong technical foundation that enables a dancer to focus on the stylistic and performance aspects of dance. Technique is essential for leaps and turns, and correct posture is needed to execute such moves. This is a great class to enhance flexibility too, where students will lengthen and strengthen their muscles. Students are now able to work up towards taking ISTD examinations in this if they wish.
Main stream media including dance television programs like ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and ‘Dance Moms’ have further fuelled its demand in amateur competitive dance and studio settings.
In this class pupils will learn things like cartwheels and roly-polys to more advanced techniques including balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, flexibility, contortion and strength. We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus to ensure fun and safe progressions.
