Types of Dance we offer

 

The LSQ Academy of Dance offers a variety of dance classes to suit all ages and abilities.

These new skills are learnt whilst enjoying them selves and remain with them throughout life. Whether your child is a natural performer keen to train for a stage career or is an explorer who sees the LSQ Academy of Dance as an opportunity to stretch themselves, make new friends and discover how much they can grow. We are here to help!

Ballet

Ballet remains the core of teaching ethos at the LSQ Academy of Dance. Ballet is the foundation of all dance styles, as it provides correct posture, strength, balance and sensitivity which highlight the dynamics of all aspects of dance.

Boogie Babies First Dance Steps

An ideal introduction to dance for children aged 2-4 years that builds confidence, social skills and imagination, in a warm and nurturing environment. Mums and Dads are welcome to join in too!

Tap

Tap Dancing is a unique way of learning rhythm musically. Students follow the International Dance Teachers Association (I.D.T.A) syllabus but also have freestyle classes, thus encouraging personal style.

Tap is as popular today as it was in the heyday of the great Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals. A gentle, rhythmical and enjoyable way to keep fit!

Modern Jazz

Modern Jazz is a discipline that has the ability to adapt and develop. It is a great foundation for Street Dance and encourages co-ordination, stamina and strength.

Classes are structured to begin to prepare the physical strength and flexibility required to demonstrate emotion through interpretation of any musical genre, one minute you may be dancing to the rhythm of a drum, the next to a funky jazz style.

You may explore contrast between expansion and relaxation or learn to isolate in a slick stylish mood, whatever the atmosphere of the class; it will be a wonderful opportunity to react and interact with other members of the class and really dance to express your feelings.

Theatre Craft

Students learn different dance styles to develop a confident theatrical performance. They also study the technical aspects of the stage and production. Theatre craft prepares the body physically through exercise and stimulates artistic ability. Dancing with hand props, understanding stage make up and much more – it provides all the ‘must have’ qualities for a Theatrical career professional or amateur.

Pointe work

Pointe work is an exciting and essential part of a ballet student’s training.

Each student responds to the demands of Pointe preparation differently, and some will need longer than others to be ready for Pointe work.

Students will be notified when they are ready to go en Pointe. We will provide information about fitting Pointe shoes, and will schedule a private lesson, so that students can be introduced to Pointe technique and learn the proper care of their feet and Pointe shoes.

Limbering

If you want to be stronger, more supple, toned or flexible then this is the class for you. Whatever you specialise in this class can help you improve your basic techniques even non dancers can benefit.

Adult Ballet and Tap.

Private Classes available.
