These programs are designed for the advanced & dedicated dancer, with a focus on technique development to those looking to extend their training with examinations & competitions. These highly specialised classes require a minimum 3 years dance experience, advanced entry skill levels & pre-requisites based on technique & current exam levels to form the basis of our competition dance team. This program is designed to provide a platform for goal achievement and success in both examinations and competitions, while focusing on team unity and studio pride.
It is our policy to offer appropriate dance opportunities to every child, and placements for troupe involvement are carefully considered each dance year. Positions are offered to student’s who demonstrate a passion for dance, commitment to weekly classes, have sound previous dance experience & subject to current exam level & technique requirements. Some dancers who are placed in a higher level become discouraged, only to lose their passion for dance. Others respond to the challenge of being in a class with dancers who are more proficient by pushing themselves to work harder. Placement is highly individual and the factors that go into the decision are complex. If we feel a student is better suited to an alternative class, we will make this recommendation & adjust their enrolment accordingly. Students must be involved in a minimum of 3 technique classes. For more information please email us & ask to receive a copy of our 2021 Elite Squad handbook.
Examinations set a definite goal for students to reach every year, and these classes are the best way to gain a greater understanding of the fundamentals of dance. Our exam classes are structured around the CSTD syllabus in modern jazz, tap & classical ballet & teach body awareness, music appreciation, core body strength, encourages self-preparation and discipline. Students gain confidence under our guidance by moving through their levels with a sense of pride, success and accomplishment.
For many, the ultimate goal is becoming fully accredited, nationally recognised & employable CSTD dancers & teachers, and we are committed to being on that journey with them to help them achieve their dreams.
