  TAP

Musical phrasing is key in this form of dance, where the goal is to produce music with your feet. Tap dancing requires an excellent sense of timing, co-ordination, and precision in execution. Students will work through basic warm-up combinations, standard tap steps, and intricate choreography to hone their agility, musicality, style, and rhythm skills.

 

 

LYRICAL

Lyrical is often described as a hybrid of Classical Ballet, Jazz, and Modern Dance. Lyrical is less constrained than Ballet, more emotive than Jazz and incorporates free movement from Modern. It is a highly interpretive, expressive, and free-flowing form of dance, wherein the dancer expresses the theme or lyrics of a piece of music through his/her movements.
Classes are available by invitation only to older students (14+) who have a background in Ballet and/or Jazz.

 

ACRO

Acrobatic dance is similar to a gymnastics floor routine. Students learn gymnastic and acrobatic tricks such as rolls, balances, as well as dance moves. All of these skills are then incorporated together to produce difficult and interesting routines.
At Dundas School of Dance, students learn to stretch and strengthen their bodies first, so as to avoid injuries. Students are carefully spotted by instructors and practice on the safety of athletic mats.
One of the most famous groups of acrobatic dancers is Cirque Du Soleil.

 
MUSICAL THEATRE
 
Musical theatre is most commonly known as Broadway dance. Musical theatre combines elements of dance and drama, for entertaining presentation. In professional theatres, performers actually sing, however, at most dance studios, students learn to lip sync lyrics.
Musical theatre is a popular form of dance because it is fun, creative and very expressive. Students learn elements of dance, drama games and learn to develop characters.
Famous musical theatre dancers include: Bob Fosse, Ann Reinking and Joel Grey.
