The Brunswick School of Dance began in 1997 and has since grown to include well over 200 students of all ages. After 10 years at the Brunswick East Primary School, the School had grown to such an extent that we were able to secure our very own studios in the adjoining suburb of Northcote. Our new home has been embraced very warmly by students and is now a hub of activity after school and at weekends.
The main objective of the School is to introduce the joy of dance to students. The teaching environment is warm, friendly and encouraging and many students have remained with the school from its outset to the present.
Classes aim to challenge students and the content is presented in an interesting format appropriate to the particular age and level. Children in junior levels enjoy a mixture of dance games and basic technique while middle and upper levels are guided through a more formal class structure. Props and inspiring music form an important part of the learning process.
Students increase their knowledge and skills through preparing for special events such as Presentation Classes, Exams, Cabaret, Eisteddfods and of course, the highlight of the year, our Annual Concerts. The skills and confidence learned through these dance experiences can be carried into all facets of life.
Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus (R.A.D) is taught by our highly qualified teachers. This is an International Syllabus which offers a carefully devised training program. Students progressing through the grades are able to develop and build on their skills at a gradual and age appropriate rate. Visit www.rad.org.uk
Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Musical Theatre
Our experienced teachers have devised a curriculum for these more modern styles of dance which build on basic skills gradually over time. Classes follow a basic structure of warm-up, technique and dance routine and draw ideas from musical theater, historical methods, and the latest trends in dance.
