Whilst your training as a dancer will focus on developing your technical skills, you will also become a creative artist who is able to communicate emotionally with an audience, through the medium of dance.
On a daily basis you will be immersed in rigorous dance classes in ballet, jazz, commercial, modern, contemporary, pas de deux, tap, body conditioning and stage combat. 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. You will be inspired to develop your own style in your work, as well as developing references to leading exponents of dance. Your will study the work of choreographers such as Bob Fosse, Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, Jerome Robbins, George Balanchine, enriching your understanding of the art form.
