JAZZ
Jazz is the most popular style of dance at dancenergy.  de offers a unique jazz style which incorporates the traditional jazz technique with a funky modern commercial edge.  Students will begin the class with a warm-up to improve flexibility and muscular endurance. It then follows into technical elements such as turns, leaps & kicks and is usually followed by choreography.

MODERN
Through technical & creative components, students learn the skills of elevation, extension, strength & emotion within contrasting movements and fresh choreography and storytelling.

BALLET
dancenergy offers a modern approach to the traditional form of the Classical Ballet Technique. All Open & Exam classes follow the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus. For a more serious approach, students are offered participation in R.A.D exam classes. This is the style that is the foundation of all other dance styles and we encourage all dancers to participate in these classes to improve technique and learn the classical form.

TAP
Loud, fun & rhythmical, dancenergy offers challenging tap classes for the beginner or more advanced. Students are taught technical based exercises, incorporating co-ordination & style.

HIP HOP

MUSICAL THEATRE
