Pre Grade Programme for Junior Dancers
We offer a pre grade programme through NZAMD with specially choreographed presentation and performance classes for the 4 to 7 year olds, designed to introduce children to dance in a fun and imaginative way.
Below you will find a brief description of the different dance styles we offer. I have included my favorite clips to create a better picture of the style. I hope you enjoy them :-)
Jazz is an exciting and energetic style of dance with a fast tempo. It involves both loco motor and non loco motor movements of a sharp and explosive nature. Jazz is danced to pop music and suits keen movers and shakers. The clip below is an example of Jazz danced in a Bollywood style.
Ballet is a gentle and graceful form of dance which focuses on body alignments and soft movement qualities. Classical Ballet combines artistry and technique and requires discipline and focus. It is danced to classically styled music and suits students with a dream of dancing like a Ballerina.
Contemporary is a unique style of dance that has great flow in and out of the floor and uses both symmetrical and asymmetrical body shapes. It is a mix between Lyrical and Jazz that has both sudden and sustained qualities and movements. Contemporary has stunning arm and body lines and explores the use of different levels and space. Contemporary is best suited for a mature dancer.
