Urban dance is a dance genre using elements of street dance styles fused with hip hop culture. Routines are choreographed to current music by our expert teachers.
We are now implementing the RBM dance syllabus to some of our junior classes. These skills provide a strong technical base in urban choreography, and delve into street dance styles as the syllabus progresses. Exams to test knowledge are available.
Our junior classes are based on the NZAMD Jazz examination syllabus. Students prepare for and take examinations while developing a high level of technical skill in an enjoyable, challenging, structured environment.
Age-grouped classes focus on consolidating and perfecting accurate skills to develop strong
techniques for leaps, turns, kicks, combos, splits and flexibility to assist dancers to achieve a high standard for performance.
Contemporary dance is style that is expressive and combines a mixture of different styles which are modern, jazz, lyrical and ballet.
Along with this fusion of different styles, teachers also ensure that students have a strong connection from their body to their mind to convey a fluid motion through their body which creates versatility and freedom.
