We are so excited to offer our students a fabulous introduction to the world of dance and song supported by the world renowned ATOD syllabus as well as Once Upon A Ballet. Offering classes in Ballet, Jazz and Tap, our Tiny Star classes allow students to develop musicality, co-ordination and fine and gross motor skills under the guidance of our nurturing and supportive teaching staff.
We believe in creating a fun and imaginative environment for our students, encouraging self expression and confidence while ensuring they learn the proper foundations in dance and song.
Jazz embodies many aspects of dance. It has been influenced by ballet, modern, tap, hip-hop, African dance and many more styles. Jazz pulls from all dance styles mixing them together to create a high energy style. From Broadway to Commercial Jazz, it is no wonder Jazz is one of the most popular forms of Dance!
Tutus, pointe shoes and ballet buns! Ballet is a stunning and breathtakingly beautiful art form and we at Dancefusion believe it is the core of dance! It is usually the first dance style learnt as every dancer dreams of pointe shoes! And for our boys, the ability to jump higher than the sky.
At Dancefusion, we study the world renowned syllabus, A.T.O.D (Australian Teachers Of Dancing).
Our students learn short and engaging exercises on the Barre and in the Centre while also working on classical routines to build muscle memory, technique and discipline.
Contemporary dance embodies ballet, modern, jazz and lyrical. It uses technique such as ballet as its fundamentals and creates many more greater movements that do not adhere to the strict rules of ballet and modern. There are different categories of contemporary dance such as Contemporary Ballet and Contemporary Jazz. Contemporary dance is often danced to all types of music and in bare feet with non-traditional costumes.
Tap is a form of dance where dancers use their feet as percussive instruments. They wear shoes specially designed with metal plates on the toe and heel. There are many different styles of tapping however the two most noted are Rhythm Tap and Broadway Tap. We love hearing our very own happy feet dancing around the studio to all styles of music while creating fun and enjoyable rhythms.
Hip Hop is an urban dance style also known as Street Dance. Hip Hop is edgy, raw and intense. Hip Hop is extremely popular and is often seen in many music video clips. Students will love the fast paced and enjoyable class dancing to all forms of music in a respectful and encouraging environment.
The basis of lyrical is ballet but also encompasses both jazz and modern. It is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic. It focuses on conveying musicality and emotion through movement. Lyrical encourages students to use self expression and is a lovely way for students to express a story and emotions through movement.
We have a fabulous Musical Theatre program for all ages. Our Junior and intermediate classes learn the art of becoming the ultimate triple threat performer, studying acting, song and dance! All equally important to becoming a confident and well polished performer. Our Senior Musical Theatre classes focus on similar aspects, while also focusing on audition preparations and professional performances. All classes work towards yearly performances whether it be the school musical production or our Senior Cabaret at Theatre Works in St Kilda.
Think flips, cart wheels and gymnastics style movements. Our students are literally flipping around the studio creating amazing moves in which we could only dream of! We focus on conditioning and strength work to ensure a safe practice of all movements.
Think Music videos, back up dancers and Beyonce! Commercial dance refers to dancing performed in pop artist live shows, music videos and movies. … Commercial dance is a super fun style of dance to learn, very upbeat and entertaining.
