CLASSES

 

Whether you're a student that is inspired to dance professionally or simply interested in having fun while learning and developing a new skill with friends, King's Dance Academy has the classes for you.

JAZZ (Pre-Prep - Year 12)

The term “jazz” incorporates a broad range of dance styles. Jazz dance develops in parallel to popular music, with jazz being the physical embodiment of popular music of a given time.  It therefore continues to evolve and remain popular across the world and across age groups.

 

There is a strong emphasis on technique, strength, clean lines and personality. 

 

Examples: Broadway to Music Videos to So You Think You Can Dance.

BALLET (Pre-Prep - Year 12)

Ballet is the foundation from which nearly all dance styles have developed. For this reason, we encourage all students to participate in a weekly ballet class to use as a technical foundation to assist other dance styles.

 

Ballet Classes involve barre, centre and corner work. Ballet Classes will help improve posture, muscle tone, flexibility, core strength, musicality and artistic expression.

 

HIP HOP (Prep - 12)

Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping

 

What distinguishes hip-hop from other forms of dance is that it is often "freestyle" (improvisational) in nature and hip-hop dance crews often engage in freestyle dance battle. Think irresistible rhythms and eye-catching steps that break many of the conventions of classical dance.

CONTEMPORARY (Year 7 - 12)

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Contemporary dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor. This dance genre is often done in bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed to many different styles of music.

 

We draw upon pioneers like Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey and Lester Horton. 

TAP DANCE (Year 1 - 12)

Tap dance is a form of dance characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. There is a versatility in this dance style. Early tapper, like Fred Astaire provided a more ballroom look to tap dancing, while Gene Kelly introduced ballet elements and style into tap. As the style evolved it take a broadway approach before introducing, street tap. Imagine Hip Hop and Tap got fused together.

 

Examples: Happy Feet, Anything Goes, 42nd Street.

DANCE (Pre-Prep - Prep)

Dance classes for Pre-prep and Prep fuses the foundations of Ballet technique with the up-beat expressive movements of Jazz.

 

The focus is on laying the foundation of movement, co-ordination, basic technique while having loads and loads of fun.

In most cases it is a $20 - $50 hire cost for all jazz, tap, ballet or lyrical costumes and a $30 - $60 purchase cost for all hip hop outfits. These costs are added to your quarterly invoices. 

Most classes will have 1-2 events that require a costume for the year. Costumes will never be compromising, suggestive, revealing or look “too-old” for them.
