Classical Ballet Dance Classes
We offer thorough training in Classical Ballet, using the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus. Established in 1920 in the United Kingdom and in Australia in 1935, with over 13,000 members’ spread across 83 countries, the RAD is one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organisations in the world.
The RAD supports the advancement of dance and is dedicated to promoting excellence in ballet training through teacher training and providing examinations to reward achievement. The RAD helps and encourages its teachers to perfect their teaching skills and pass on this knowledge to their students.
All dance technique, style, poise and strength is derived from Classical Ballet. Ballet technique develops clear articulation and beauty in the movement and carriage of the body, which in turn can assist with all other dance forms. Ballet is the most disciplined the most expressive, and the most rewarding of all the art forms. It is well acknowledged that all the great dancers of the past and present gain their flair from strong classical training.
Jazz Dance Classes
Our Jazz Dance classes include a warm up, isolations of the body, conditioning, stretching, technique, and combinations. The Bell-Rose Academy has developed its own style for Jazz Classes flavoured with differing styles of Broadway, Funk and Lyrical to heighten creativity, exploring various Jazz Techniques. Our syllabus is energetic, working to achieve strength, flexibility and co-ordination and is danced to popular music. We offer internal Exams for our Jazz Dancers, these examinations are encouraged as a fun and exciting event as we believe that Examinations help to stimulate concentration and effort, giving students a focus of working towards a goal, resulting in a great sense of achievement.
