Ballet is the foundation of other dance disciplines that helps students develop grace, posture, body alignment, and artistry. Beyond receiving training of the highest calibre, students here learn concentration, self-discipline, creative expression, and a strong appreciation for the arts. Our syllabus not only gives priority to all aspects of classical training, but also focuses on choreography composition, modern technique, dance history and contemporary works.



Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before traveling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses traveling steps, high kicks, leaps, and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style. 


Acrobatic arts

Acrobatic dance or acrobatic art is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professionals. It is the beautiful fusion of classical dance techniques and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context. Come learn how now!
