Dance Class Styles

BALLET
The Tracey Walker School of Dancing teaches classical ballet under the British Association of Teachers of Dancing, one of the oldest and most prestigious dance associations in the world. Their syllabus is used through the grades from pre-primary, at 4yrs, right up to majors. After Elementary, pupils can decide to either continue with intermediate and advanced, or go straight on to the student teacher syllabus, followed by associate, membership and finally fellowship.

MODERN
Probably the most popular form of dance within the school. Based on the BATD modern dance syllabus, we encourage a strong sense of rhythm by teaching time signatures. Imaginations run wild with improvisation, which also helps choreographic skills and with the use of song and mime, this class is character building and a great boost to confidence. Grade work is practised in each class and medal tests are taken from first steps through to premier award. Some forms of Jazz, hip hop and street dancing are also taught in the modern dance class, to add a little variety.
STREET DANCE
"Dance like the stars on MTV" This class is aimed at pupils who wish to dance for fun. NO EXAMS - NO PRESSURE !!!!!!

TAP
Based on the BATD tap syllabus, with the use of rhythm technique, the school covers grade work and enters pupils for medal tests. From infant tap dance at 4yrs through to premier award.

CONTEMPORARY DANCE
"Contemporary dance" is a very interpretive style of dance that focuses on unconventional movements. Contemporary Dance is characterized by is versatility: Contemporary can be danced to almost any style of music, or united with other dance forms to create new styles of movement. Contemporary seeks to work with natural alignment of the body and is therefore safe and accessible for beginners. At the same time, the ease of movement prompted by Contemporary dance technique allows experienced dancers to push new boundaries of body movement.
