˜Dynamos” is a step up from 'Dynamites'. It is a fun, dynamic and interactive creative dance class, where each child's natural ability and potential is encouraged. The class will build on co-ordination, body control, skills, confidence and rhythm. The combination of body awareness and expression are explored through playful exercises and taught dance sequences, including Contemporary and inspired by the techniques of ballet and jazz. Guided by their teacher, ˜Dynamos” are also given the opportunity to create their own imaginative movement phrases. 

 

Rainbow Award through the NATD (National Association of Teaching Dancers) There is the opportunity for Dynamos to take a short and fun exam. This is very flexible, and  It will involve a short dance/s in a set style; Contemporary, Ballet, Acro etc. They may just do the one dance, or if we feel they can manage, they could do two. For each exam they take (dance they do), they receive a rainbow award, which is one of the colours from the rainbow!

Progressing from 'Dynamos', is 'Innovators' Dance class, where ability and potential are

In addition to building on physical expression and technique, movement vocabulary and performance skills are developed. Alongside taught movement phrases and dance sequences, Innovators will have the opportunity to explore their own choreographic voice. The group will devise new works throughout the year, with both in-house teachers and guest choreographers, to perform at various venues and events.

Contemporary Dance Exams for Innovators and Flight

Exciting opportunity for all Innovators and Youth Contemporary dancers to take a Contemporary Dance Syllabus exam through the NATD (National Association for Teaching Dancers) Please enquire within.

Innovators and Flight- Arts Award// www.artsaward.org.uk

Should pupils/families be interested, we will be offering all our Innovators and youth contemporary dancers, the opportunity to gain an award/s in the Arts in association with the national organisation Arts Award. This is optional, so dancers don't have to take part and won't effect their journey or progression with centre-point if they decide against it. A large amount of the award will be gained in class, without them realising it! It can also take them as long as they need. There is a commitment but no deadline.
