Dynamos (4-6years)

When: Tuesday

Where: The Grange Hall

Time: 4:00pm - 4:45pm

 

‘Dynamos’ is a step up from 'Dynamites'. It is a fun, dynamic and interactive 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, acro and tumbling 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) Our fantastic Dynamos will get the opportunity to take a short and fun exam/s in July (date tbc). 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! 

Innovators (7-10 years)

When: Tuesday

Where: The Grange Hall

Time: 4:45pm - 5.30pm

 

Progressing from 'Dynamos', is 'Innovators' Dance class, where ability and potential are ever-present. The class starts to introduce the principles and foundations of Contemporary Dance, whilst still being influenced by other dance genres, including jazz, commercial styles, acro and tumbling. 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.

Youth Contemporary (11+ Senior years)

When: Tuesday

Where: The Grange Hall

Time: 5:30pm - 6:30pm

 

An engaging and dynamic class, where participants will gain a strong understanding of Contemporary Dance, whilst still being influenced by other dance genres, including jazz, ballet, commercial styles and acro. The class is designed to develop technique, fitness, conditioning and musicality, whilst nurturing each individual’s potential. The dancers will also be given the opportunity to develop their skills as young choreographers and improvisers; two invaluable skills to have. The group will devise new works throughout the year, with both in-house teachers and guest choreographers, to perform at various venues and events. What better way for a young dancer to explore their potential, gain valuable experience and learn about possible routes into formal training?

NEW FOR 2020 for Innovators and Youth Contemporary

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

Each week, during the structured class, a couple of exercises from Grade 1-6 will be taught. (Relevant grades associated with the age range in either class, will be taught). No different to learning a new exciting dance phrase! I must stress, these will only form one part of our diverse and dynamic classes. Along side gradually learning the syllabus, in a relaxed nature and over the duration of the year, there will be X3 4 hour intensives on the following Sunday's leading up to the exam in July 2020 (date to be confirmed). Sundays 10am-2pm Southam Venue tbc: 17th May, June 21st, July 5th. Only those dancers wishing to to be entered for an exam, would need to attend these intensives. They will be £15.00 per Sunday, per dancer. Even if dancers decide they don't want to take an exam, that's absolutely fine, and won't effect their progression with centre-point. We believe it's still a win, win situation as the syllabus is beautiful, so even if the exam route isnt for you/your child, everyone can benefit from the additional technical knowledge they will gain.

From early 2020, 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 class is designed specifically for mums and their babies, giving mothers the opportunity to start to regain both fitness and stamina in a supportive 'baby -friendly' environment. The class will focus on toning the tummy and pelvic floor muscles and strengthening and toning additional muscle groups. Exercises incorporating stretch and release will be used to relax tight muscles, and relaxation techniques will create a sense of inner peace. Babies will both watch mummy and also be sensitively incorporated into certain exercises. Other babies, physical and social interaction along with a relaxing musical backdrop, is great stimulation for a baby’s developing mind and body.

*How old can a baby be? Every mothers story is individual to them, and each mother knows their child. The only thing we say, is come and try a class. We look forward to seeing you. In the mean time, don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss this or any other element.

 

Mums - please be aware that current guidelines suggest you should wait at least 6 weeks after a vaginal birth, or 10 weeks after a C-Section before attending an exercise class, and you must get consent to exercise from your GP, Midwife or Healthcare Provider before joining a class. Please note these are minimum recommendations and as we are all individual you may not feel ready to exercise until much later than this.
