    Young dancers can choose among ballet, modern dance and hip hop.

    Classical ballet is a wonderful way for young children tolearn to follow instructions, gain a sense of discipline through learning new positions, learn co-ordination, balance and how to control their bodies in motion.

    Modern dance,often described as fluid and freeform, consists of long, languid movements, and jerky ones that show the contraction and expansion of the body. The young dancers will focus on contractions, spirals, basic floor work, and elemental concepts of space, time and force. They will also build core strength and flexibility in a fun and encouraging environment.

    Hip hop is a great way for young dancers to express themselves. It's a good option for kids who don't like to be held back with too many rules. Hip-hop can be a fun way for kids to make friends and build their confidence.

    Older children can choose a combination of Hip-Hop and Zumba. Choreography helps teach a child to focus, creativity, and discipline, all in which are mandatory in any area of education. Social Benefits- Dance improves sensitivity, understanding, appreciation, and consideration for others, both for their similarities and differences.

At the same time, students are taught music theory, solfège (a music education method used to teach aural skills, pitch and sight-reading of Western music) and polyphony (the simultaneous combination of tones or melodic lines).
