The Junior Dancer

Dance & Movement Training with GAMTA

Whether your child has come from a strong dance background or is a beginner, our experienced team will identify their potential for growth,  finding stimulating and interesting ways to encourage, support and develop their progress.

The dance programme is comprehensive and challenging, but fun.  Your child will study ballet, jazz and tap as well as being introduced to other areas of dance such as hip hop, street, contemporary and commercial jazz. Ballet will develop core strength and technique, enhancing the other areas of your child’s dance. Don’t worry if ballet is new to your child, or if in fact he or she is already an accomplished dancer;  the team will set appropriate challenges for your child’s ability. They will fulfil their potential as a dancer but, more importantly, they will become an imaginative and creative performer who is inspired by the world, their peers and their own experience. Our environment is one where your child will feel comfortable to explore safely and confidently, whilst being guided by supportive tutors and peers, and driven by a sense of fun and exploration.

Your child will have the opportunity to follow ISTD dance examinations in ballet, modern and tap and also complete SQA approved Higher Dance in S5

As well as ballet, jazz and tap class, your child will also study acting skills, devising skills, improvisation, singing skills, group singing, voice, acting through song, music theory, project and performance class.  They will develop an understanding of style, storytelling and expressive communication through dance. We encourage our students to develop their own fitness programmes and healthy lifestyle.

External Examinations

All students will take national dance examinations in ISTD ballet, modern and tap. This is a high standard of work and will assist in their entry to further education colleges and our own BA musical theatre course.

S3/4 level students will present for NPA musical theatre award adding to their credit portfolio for further and higher education

S6 level students will complete Higher Dance, again contributing to their credit portfolio for college entry and allowing your child more flexibility for other subject options at school.
