2021 INFORMATION

Below is some information regarding our 2021 Class Styles, Class Schedule, Important Dates, Fees and Terms & Conditions

DANCE STYLES

Adult Classes

It’s never to late to start dancing!  Our Adult program offers a wide variety of classes for all levels including Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz/Hip Hop, Musical Theatre and Tap.  If you are looking for a way to get fit, have a fun workout, learn a new style, improve posture, balance, muscle strength and flexibility or simply have fun, give one of these classes a try!

Dance for Life has a class for everyone!

We offer flexible payment options for Adult classes, including  Full term enrolment, a 5-class-pass or a casual lesson pass. 

Ballet

Ballet is beautiful to watch and develops children’s posture and poise, resulting in positive self-awareness and confidence. The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) training programme ensures that students learn progressively, building on their knowledge & ability as they grow.  At Dance for Life!  they also have a lot of fun, role-playing their dance one minute, working hard the next in a friendly group environment.  Students also have the option to work towards ballet examinations with the RAD.

BoyZone

Boyzone – definitely no girls allowed! – is a chance for boys to learn together.  We focus on developing strength & flexibility whilst learning male-oriented moves in a friendly environment.  The dance styles taught encompass Jazz/Hip Hop & Tap/Street Tap.

Contemporary

We work with the Jason Winters Contemporary program – its technique and structure is designed in the most classical and academic way yet is infused with the choreographic electricity that you see in today’s commercial dances. Students will experience the fundamentals of movement, how to use gravity, suspension & release as well as developing creative expression and musicality.

Dance Play
(ages 2 to 5)

Dance is an important part of every child’s development. In Dance Play classes children will be encouraged to use their faces and all parts of their bodies as self-expression and to imitate living and non-living objects. It’s a great fun way to enhance your child’s creative and motor development.

HIP HOP

Hip Hop is an energetic form of dancing that allows its dancers to perform with freedom of movement and self expression. Its s style that comes from the soul and goes with the beat and rhythm of urban hip hop music.

JAZZ

We offer classes in Jazz for children from the age of 4 years. We utilise the Comdance syllabus which features routines from some of Australia’s leading artists. It is technically challenging and a great preparation in all styles of jazz to meet today’s performance demands. Examinations are also an option in this genre.

MUSICAL THEATRE

Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical  are communicated through words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.  We are thrilled to be offering Musical Theatre Training in 2021!

PARENT & BUB

Our Parent & Bub Class is designed to be a magical dance experience where parents (& grandparents) can share the ultimate bonding experience with their baby or toddler.  The dance classes are conducted in a safe, professional dance school environment. Grandparents are also welcome.

Tap

We offer classes in tap dance from the age of 4 years to Adults.  The Comdance Tap syllabus, created by Sandra Breen OAM, is a complete training programme with an emphasis on fun and technique in the younger levels, progressing to more complex and contemporary styles of tap with exercises and routines by Jack Chambers, Rennie Ann Martini, Keith Hawley and Chris Jordan who are all very experienced, well-respected tappers & choreographers. Examinations are available in this genre.
