ASSOCIATE DANCE CLASSES
For many students, dance and performing arts classes focus on learning routines or preparing for a performance. While enjoyable, sadly this often means that dance technique training, fundimental to a successful career, is missing. For students striving to become professional dancers the correct technical training is critical from an early age. Correct technique is essential for dance training, it improves a student’s performance ability, but most importantly, safe dance practice supports the long-term wellbeing of a performer’s body.
The Associate Training program covers the core genres of dance and performing arts – Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz and Musicial Theatre. In each genere we educate and develope students’ core technique, their performance ability and improve their overall strength, stability, flexibility and stamina. The Associate program also focuses on the enjoyment, appreciation and love of dance, movement and performing arts. The program is designed to mould students into well-rounded, technically skilled, advanced dancers and performers, ready to move into full-time pre-professional dance training.
While it does not guarantee successful entry into the College of Dance, there is a distinctive advantage for students who have already trained under the Artisitic Directors, the current faculty and been a part of the Associate Training Program.
