JAZZ/ FUNK

JAZZ/ FUNK

This fusion of styles was created in response to the ever-growing Hip-Hop dance scene of the late 70’s/80’s. The classical dance industry responded by developing the studio based style Jazz funk in order to create choreography from the hip-hop dances that were being performed on the street. The combination style is now commonly used by commercial dancers and can be seen on many video clips using isolations and strength to emphasise the movement in a stylized form of street funk and pop. This very popular class is great for all ages, it offers the versatility to bust out to a wide range of music styles and rhythms while gaining the skills and diversity of Jazz & Funk.

CONTEMPORARY

CONTEMPORARY

Similar to the style performed by the Sydney Dance Company. Contemporary is artistic blend of ballet and expressive modern movement that  utilizes a combination of floor work, stunning  lines, agility and free ranging movement .A beautiful style which helps develop the love of dance through artistic interpretation and encouragement of self expression & creativity.Contemporary dance is strongly enhanced when students also attend classical ballet and have an understanding of technique and body alignment.

STREET DANCE /HIP HOP

ACRO TECHNIQUES AND TRICKS FOR DANCE

LADIES ATHENA DANCE

LADIES ATHENA DANCE

Unleash your Inner Goddess! Through Femininity and Connection

Our Athena classes are open to women of all ages who would like to connect with the universal energy and freedom of femininity. Our classes will teach you how to explore and embrace your femininity; you will learn how to shimmy & shake your way to create positive energy, exude radiance, awakening the mind, body and spirit to show off your natural beauty on a journey of self discovery.

So often in our busy schedules we don’t take the time to connect with their own femininity as well as with other women. Contrary to the way media represents women, we are all beautiful and don’t have to be a size 6 or alter our appearance surgically to feel good about ourselves! Athena emphasises performance and characterisation. It is centered around a combination of dance styles including  Jazz, latin, cabaret along with expressive dance.

Our Athena program is offered to women who would like to attend a more relaxed program with less commitment as well as to those women who would like a more committed program. Our classes offer both performance or casual attendance classes with non-performance.
