Class Descriptions

Ascot School of Dance offers a wide variety of dance classes including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Elite Performance and PBT.

NEW in 2019 is the introduction of RAD "Silver Swans' ballet classes specifically designed for the 'mature' dancer.  There is also a brand new Adult beginner TAP class.

 

*Prep classes - approx. 4-5yo - an extension of the pre-prep class adding further challenges

  

*Combo - aimed at students in grade 1 at school - Students are introduced to ballet, tap and jazz giving them an appreciation of the main dance genres

 

*RAD ballet - established in 1920 this is an internationally recognised standard of ballet and character work

 

*CSTD Jazz - students gain strength and flexibility while improving their technique to fun, popular music

 

*CSTD Tap - a chance to develop performance technique through rhythm and dynamics

 

*CSTD Musical Theatre - sing, dance, act - learn about all the most famous musicals through a recently developed syllabus

 

Progressing Ballet Technique - this innovative training technique using a fitball assists students to learn the importance of correct posture, weight placement and core strength and which muscle groups achieve this - an essential aid for classical ballet.  Ages nine plus.

 

Elite Performance - exam students only that display a willingness to work hard and show 100% commitment

 

*Exams are offered for all of these genres - the only stipulation is that any student wishing to do an RAD ballet exam, must do two ballet classes per week.

 

NB: For students who have completed the "combo" class in 2018, you now have the choice of separate classes, ie; ballet, tap, jazz, musical theatre.  Do one class or all of them!   The classes generally dovetail together, eg; your ballet level will adjoin your tap or jazz class.
