You're a Rising Star if you are at least 9 years old by June 30th or if you have completed ATOD Level 3. And are enrolled in any of the Bronze, Silver or Gold levels
Ballet is the favourite subject at Dancehouse. The Rising Stars study the Bronze and Silver levels of ballet. The basic concepts should be all established and we begin more complex adage sequences, more challenging jumps and pirouettes. The fun really begins now!
Silver ballet students can add the PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique) class, to improve strength and turnout. Because I feel the PBT is so beneficial, I want all the ballet students to take part - so I have made the class complimentary.
The ATOD Jazz Moves classes will increase stamina with challenging cardio routines, develop strength and improve flexibility. You'll learn multiple turning variations, conquer energetic leaps and fabulous dance routines. Wow! Bring your energy to this class.
Although not compulsory, ballet training will enable jazz students to reach a much higher standard of technique in their Jazz Turns and Leaps.
Contemporary Dance is your chance to explore your creativity, by taking a theme or concept and exploring how you can move to tell the story. Improvisation is an important part of a contemporary dance and students need to learn to "let go" and be confident with their own interpretation of the music and the theme. To enrol in the Level 1 Contemporary class, you need to be a mature 10 years old at the minimum, have taken ballet classes for at least two years and be at Bronze Star ballet level or above.
Make music with your feet with the fabulous Tapatak Oz rhythms. Tapatak Oz is a uniquely Australian system of tap dance training, where you are encouraged to have fun and add your own creative percussive touches and improvised introductions. The set work becomes more challenging as the rhythms become more complex and the steps just keep getting faster and faster and faster.
