The Importance of Taking More Than One Class:
Students who wish to intensify their training should take more than one class (where available) in their chosen style. Students taking more than one class per week, including one of each of the different dance styles, will enjoy crossover benefits. The posture, strength and body awareness developed in Ballet will enhance the development of Jazz technique. The musicality and body coordination developed in Tap will reinforce the work in Jazz discipline, and the flexibility developed in Jazz will assist in Ballet. All dance study will help Musical Theatre, and Musical Theatre will enable the dancer to find a voice for movement. Lyrical and Hip Hop will further develop the dancer’s style and versatility.
