CLASSES

ISTD BALLET

From Pre-Primary to Advanced level our ballet classes develop confidence, musicality and discipline. Classes are supported by PBT conditioning, pointe prep and pointe work.

ISTD MODERN

Modern Theatre dance is a fun and energetic rhythmic dance style using leaps, turns, kicks and travelling steps. 

ISTD TAP

Tap dance is a theatrical art form seen on the stages of many musicals. Dancers beat the floor to create distinctive sounds and interesting rhythms.
