Choosing your style

The BAL exam classes in Ballet and Jazz are the best for technique, so if you are passionate about dance you should definitely include these.  Correct technique is the focus for Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Hip Hop classes until September and then we concentrate on the concert routines. Taking the exam is excellent motivation to work harder and afterwards gives a great sense of achievement. Jazz is best for improving flexibility. Jazz, Tap & Ballet are recommended if you are interested in a performing arts career. Ballet for endurance and poise.  Hip Hop for fun and strength.
