The Dancer

Dance & Movement Training with GAMTA

Ballet will  develop a strong and dynamic core technique, reinforcing all other areas of your dance. Jazz class will introduce you to dance for musical theatre where  you will develop an understanding of genre, style and technique.  Your developed knowledge of leading practitioners will  influence and enhance both your own skills in dance, and the dance you create.
