Modern - 4 years plus
What is Modern Theatre Dance?...a question I'm frequently asked! Modern Theatre Dance can adopt different styles...from Jazz, to Contemporary, to Street/Pop. It trains a strong dance technique that’s frequently used in Musical Theatre and Commercial Pop dancing. Think 'dancy' West End shows, like 'Cats' all the way to the most up to date pop songs. Children who find ballet too full of 'rules' often enjoy Modern!
From a child's 4th birthday they are invited to join our ISTD exam classes. Exams start at Primary level and run right through to advanced vocational exams as teenagers. As a guide, I normally start 4-5 year olds in Pre-Primary, 6-7 year olds in Primary, 8-9 year olds in Grade 1 and after this age children are placed in a class based on their ability rather than age. The exam syllabus is the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and exams from Grade 1 upwards count towards UCAS points on University applications. If you are looking for a class not listed in our timetable please contact Katie to see if anything can be arranged.
