Classical Ballet and Lyrical

A classical form of dance that provides a strong foundation for all other genres of dance.

Our classes are based on the Cecchetti method of Classical Ballet and consist of barre, centre floor, progressions and technique.

Lyrical dance can be said to merge Ballet and Jazz. Lyrical is often performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements expressing strong feelings and emotions.

Please note: students must be enrolled in ballet classes to join our lyrical class.

We have qualified acrobatic teachers that assist dancers to build strength, flexibility, agility and floor gymnastics. Beginner classes will progress from rolls, bridges, handstands and cartwheels to advanced classes which incorporate tumbling, including aerial work. Students are able to work at their individual level.



Hip-Hop is a street style originating from the Bronx, New York City in the 1970’s.

Our high-energy hip-hop classes combine freestyle, break-dancing and jazz footwork to create funky and soulful expression of movement.

Please note: hip hop is an extension of our theatrical class. You must be enrolled in theatrical before you can join hip hop.​
