Cheerleading

Cheerleading in Great Britain is exploding!! The development of dance skills, use of exciting music and Pom Pons all combine to make cheerleading one of the most popular classes at Dance Works. We introduce cheerleading from our youngest age group which is 2. The children work towards ground bound exams individually and also team Cheerleading awards. Cheerleading also looks great on stage and always goes down well with audiences at our annual show and charity events.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines several dance genres. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, and is often performed in bare feet. Contemporary dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor.

Ballet

All pupils of Dance Works are encouraged to take lessons in Ballet as this is the core subject which provides the foundations to all aspects of dance. We follow the I.D.T.A dance syllabus and our aim is to ensure that each pupil is encouraged to reach their full potential, by building their confidence and technique and working towards and taking examinations. Every dancer needs great posture, co-ordination and grace. Ballet classes are available from 2 years

LAMDA speaking and prose

Pupils in this class study verses from book extracts or poems and we discover how to perform these. We analyse the extracts to ensure we understand its content and are able to answer questions should we need to in the exam. Pupils work independently, in pairs or as a class working on learning lines, analysing lines and hot seating one another on the selected piece. This exam requires pupils to perform extracts from memory some exams in the higher grades will require pupils to answer questions about their selected text.

Drama

Singing

A complete introduction to singing and voice work. All great singers have learned the basics of singing, which, believe it or not, revolve around breathing and knowing your own body. Each persons voice is so unique and finding your voice is a deeply tricky quest.

In this class we will delve into breathing techniques, posture, projection, speech and dictation.
