Dance Disciplines

Royal Academy of dance


Ballet is a classical dance form characterised by grace, technique and precision of movement. It is distinguished by stretching and strengthening of the leg and torso muscles, pointing the feet, turned out positions, and correct alignment. The classes offered are the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) method – an international society that structures the syllabus from Pre-school to Advanced 2 level allowing students to choose a Graded examination course or Vocational examinations if career minded.

Ballet Repertoire en pointe is taught in the Vocational Program as a pre-professional preparation. Repertoire originates from the Classics such as Coppélia, Paquita, Raymonda and Swan Lake.


Contemporary dance tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance’s stress on the torso, whilst allowing for more improvisation and versatility. It focuses on contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics and aims to connect the mind and body through fluid dance movements – allowing dancers freedom of movement whilst using their bodies to express emotions.


A technique which stresses the “contraction and release” movement of the torso – expanding on the traditional ballet technique and freeing it to combine total body involvement with creative expression. Modern dance technique divides the class into 4 equal segments: barre work, standing work in the centre, floor work and combinations that travel across the floor. The lower grades concentrate on establishing body alignment, strength of feet and posture as well as isolations of the body.
