Types of Development

Modern Jazz Dance

Jazz dance combines rhythm, expression and technique with aspects of a variety of popular and street music, using the body as an instrument to interpret the various styles. Jazz dance, combines elements of strength, flexibility, Jazz technique, Hip Hop and commercial Jazz including Street Jazz ensuring versatility and strong performance skills in students.

Kid’s Yoga

Studies prove that yoga for kids boosts focus, stress-relief, and overall happiness. In this class children are encouraged to “play” with yoga and experience how their breath and body interact with each other. Yoga equips children with life changing tools to deal with everyday anxieties and creates resonant health and wellness in their whole being.

Animals, nature and other objects come alive in our classes through yoga movements; as we move, we learn to stretch our bodies in new creative ways. Through yoga poses, games, activities, music and stories, we promote strength, flexibility, coordination, and body awareness.

Breathing and visualization techniques teach focus, relaxation and self-control. This program also promotes inner-strength, confidence and self-esteem; a feeling of well-being and respect for others and, love for one’s self inside out.

Move & Dance Kids (below 12yrs)

Move & Dance is a mixture of dance movements from various cultures in a smooth and seamless formation so as to make the dance enjoyable by the participants and the audience.  In this course the participants will explore various styles of dance be it hip hop, jazz, modern and classical dance.

This class offers a fun filled and non-judgemental space for the kids to express themselves through the powerful medium of music and dance.

Bollywood Dance

Bollywood dance derived and evolved from the Indian film industry using a mixture of many different dance styles including classical Indian dance, street, jazz and others.
The music is usually very lively with strong beats, which makes the class highly energetic and fun while making you feel like dancing through a Bollywood movie.
