Graded dance classes are perfect for dancers wanting a strong foundation in technique. All graded qualifications hold credits and are equivalent to GCSE and A-Level at the higher levels.
Modern is a rhythmic dance style which is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. This is a highly energetic and diverse dance style makinging it a staple and a must for any aspiring dancer.
During this class students will learn modern theatre technique, musicality, rhythmic response and how to apply these skills to group and solo choreography. Students will quickly build a vocabulary of key steps and combinations such as travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which are all essential steps for any style of dance. Modern Dance requires strength and flexibility, but don't worry, we don't expect you to have this already, regular Modern Dance classes will train and condition a dancers body to be strong and flexible.
Students will have the opportunity to put their skills to the test and enter an I.D.T.A or I.S.T.D examination before moving up to the next grade. Certifications are globally recognised qualifications and carry UCAS points at the higher grades. Please visit the I.D.T.A/ I.S.T.D website for more information.
