Classical Ballet

Classical Ballet is the basic foundation of dance and teaches posture, grace and discipline.
Technique learned in Classical Ballet will always be used to pursue other forms of dance.


Ballet training is offered to students right from 2 years of age, teaching musicality, rhythm and timing. Ballet examinations are also offered at MMStudios-Dance and we recommend the completion of these exams to reinforce technique and overall experience.

Tap

Tap is a most enjoyable style of dance with many young students who particularly love the sound the tap shoes make. Tap is a wonderful way for children to work on their timing and rhythm, as well as balance

and co-ordination.
MMSD offers tap classes from Kindermovement (2 years+) right through to Adult

Jazz

Jazz is an exciting style of dance, with many children finding their love and passion for dance through this style. Jazz technique derives from Classical Ballet and offers each individual to find their individual movement and style with upbeat music.

Jazz is offered at MMSD from learning the basics in Kindermovement (2years+).

Acrobatic Arts

Here at MMStudios - Dance we follow the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus with three qualified Acrobatic Art Teachers. We use a heavy duty tumbling mat essential for learning Acrobatics in a safe environment. Please head to our 'Acrobatic Arts' tab for further information
 

We offer three levels of Acrobatic classes:

  • Level 1 - A class created especially for the our beginner tumblers. In this class, your child  will learn the very basics of Acrobatics such as cartwheels, handstands and forward rolls. They will also be taught the importance of Acrobatic safety.

  • Level 2 - Continue to strengthen the basic Acrobatic Arts technique with walkovers, bridges and tumbling.

  • Level 2 - Should be able to do unassisted walkovers and cartwheels, as this level will be learning handsprings, aerials and further advanced Acrobatic styles.


If you are unsure what Level would suit your child, please contact us.

Contemporary

Contemporary is a unique and individual dance style on its own. With no set technique, the possibilities and choreography are endless. Contemporary is again derived from classical training, and either can offer a soft relaxed feel, or strong and dynamic movements. Contemporary has grown to become a dominant form of dance within the arts industry.

Contemporary classes are offered for all Junior, Intermediate and Senior students.
Junior Contemporary classes are for students 10 years and under

Intermediate Contemporary classes are for students 12 years and under
Senior Contemporary Classes are for students 14 years and older

Hip-Hop

Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. Hip-hop has a more relaxed feel and isn't bound by rigid technique. Many children love this free lance style & enjoy the upbeat music & sharp movements.

Kindermovement

Kindermovement classes are for 2 year olds and up, to come along and have some fun with dance.
Teaching the very basics of dance in a playful way that encourages the little ones to have fun with mum or dad in the room to join in. This class helps with developing gross motor skills, rhythm, counting, social skills and basic dance technique. Great for little boys and girls with lots of energy to burn.
