Modern

Performers Theatre School dance classes

If Ballet gives a strong core, discipline and elegance to a dancer, modern dance is the stem from which all other dances grow. It unlocks the imagination and allows the dancer to become creative. Modern dance is the perfect complement to the stricter and more defined movements of ballet. 
It uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. As innovators such as Louis Fuller and Isodora Duncan paved the way for the creative expression through the art of modern dance here we allow our dancers to begin to create.

Contemporary

Our contemporary dance classes for children are designed to be both enjoyable and challenging. Our experienced teachers will lead students through a series of movements and exercises that will help them develop their coordination, strength, and flexibility.

We also place a strong emphasis on creativity and self-expression, encouraging students to explore their own movement styles and express
themselves through dance.

Tap

Tap dance is a rhythmic and percussive dance style that has inspired many famous dancers and choreographers, such as Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, and Tom Chambers.
