Children's Classes

Pre-School Dance

Our pre-school dance classes in Lightwater offer a stepping stone into a huge variety of performing arts subjects that we have to offer the children as they reach school age. Pre-School Dance classes are creative and inclusive to both boys and girls from 2.5years through to 4years and will ignite their imagination in a fun and friendly environment. The classes include the basics of dance from Tap, Ballet and Modern. Our Lightwater Dance Studios offer a safe and inspiring learning environment from a young age, while we develop their rhythm, coordination, communication skills and building friendships. Mini Tumblers is a NEW Class, launching in June 2021, where we will be giving Pre-School children the chance to explore the world of Acrobatic Dance in our Lightwater Studios. Similar to Gymnastics we will learn about balancing, flexibility, strength and tumbling but we will use Dance to fuse our skills together. This class is great for creating “Mini Tumblers” who will become small yet mighty individuals!!

Classical Ballet

Classical ballet is the foundation for all dance. It teaches strength, flexibility and musicality and forms friendships that last a lifetime. It is a valuable addition to all other genres of dance, as well as in many other aspects of our pupils' futures. Ballet classes for children start from age 2.5years. To date we are the only dance school in our local Lightwater area to offer Ballet classes from beginner level through to professional standard at Advanced 2 Level and is something we are very proud of.

Acrobatic Dance

Acrobatic Dance, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context. Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based in flexibility, contortion and strength. Acro classes are held on Mondays & Fridays at our Lightwater Studios following the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus.

Contemporary, Modern & Jazz

Contemporary, Jazz & Modern classes are held in Lightwater and are offered to children, teens and young adults. These classes include stretching exercises and body conditioning, which are vital components for a dancer. There is also a focus on kicks, leaps, turns and “free work” exploring different styles of choreography. Contemporary is based on the Cunningham and Graham techniques. It’s a style of dance that is very free, looks effortless, but is very technique and strength orientated.

Stage School

Sing, Dance & Act in our Musical Theatre based Stage School classes. Classes are available in Lightwater from 4yrs - 18yrs. Classes focus on building confidence and encouraging enjoyment whilst producing 5 star entertainment through Dance, Singing and Acting. No two lessons will be the same in these theatrical classes.

Tap

Tap dancing is a fun and exciting way to keep fit and is an essential addition to a dancer’s repertoire. This exciting syllabus teaches rhythm, musicality and dance quality using the feet as an instrument. Tap classes at Terri Jayne Theatre Arts follow the IDTA Syllabus and start from 2.5yrs. To date we are the only dance school in our local Lightwater area to offer Tap classes from beginner level through to professional standard at Advanced 2 Level and is something we are very proud of.
