Dance & Acrobatic Streams
This stream will offer training to students of all ages and abilities who want to learn a high standard of dance in a fun and exciting yet disciplined class room. Within this stream students can still qualify to compete in solos and teams, and will be taught at a high standard just the same as our competitive students. The difference is that teachers can tailor their classes to get the most out of their students, keeping in mind that usually these students have less training hours. There are no compulsory commitments in this stream although it is recommended they participate in the end of year show, as from term 3 onwards this is our focus.
This stream will be invitation only. This stream will only be people who have extensive competitive experience, have 100% commitment to dance both in class and at home, train in multiple styles and have been selected by a team of teachers after showing great work ethic, responsibility for their solos, and partaking in as many extra classes and workshop as they can on top of their normal week day classes. Only dancers with supportive parents who respect our teachers as the professionals, and are pleasant and cooperative will be considered. There will be a strict set of guidelines those in competitive stream must adhere to including attendance, training, behaviour and values. Students can be selected for competitive stream in dance but recreational stream for acro (or the other way around).
Troupe and team selections are separate to competitive stream selections. Competitive acrobatic classes are introduced from level 3 and higher.
Acrobatics for dancers aged 3 to 6yrs. Same as level 1 but for little developing bodies!
