Juniors- 5-12 Yrs (must be Year 1 at school for Junior Classes)

Our mantra at Rhythm Nation Studios is to Inspire, Motivate and Create. We have very passionate teachers that deliver top quality dance instruction without the high pressurisation for results, we want every child to develop and grow at their own rate and feel safe to really let go and have fun within our classes! Your child will have the optional opportunity to take exams under the IDTA syllabus if they so wish, and exciting performance opportunities locally.

We introduce our End of Term awards from this level upwards to encourage and reward those hard working pupils! All opportunities with us are optional. Children who attend our classes will learn the skills of their chosen styles having so much fun that they won’t even realise they are becoming fantastic dancers in the process. We strictly limit our class numbers to 16 only per class to ensure each and every child gets the attention and experience they deserve. Parent’s/Guardian’s can drop off from this level upwards, or stay onsite if they prefer.

Here’s some more information what we have on offer at this level – including online booking links to book your child’s free taster class in your style of choice:

Ballet

Ballet is the core of all dance styles and we strongly recommend all dancers try Ballet. It’s fundamental for developing strength, flexibility, developing posture, and teaches great discipline.

Children aged 5 upwards have the option to go through the grading system under the IDTA Syllabus or simply to come to class and enjoy meeting new friends and develop in confidence grace and musicality. Our classes honour the classical art form of Ballet whilst being fun at the same time. A class that is bound to get them twirling away at home looking forward to their next class!

Contemporary Jazz (Lyrical)

Contemporary Jazz is a balletic form of dance that incapsulates the story of the song. A little more free than Ballet, but ballet training is essential to achieve the most from this class. We recommend you study Ballet alongside most disciplines, but especially Contemporary Jazz. Pupils have the opportunity to take graded examinations if they wish. If your child is constantly twirling around and being very dramatic, this is a style they should definitely have a go at! Suitable for children aged 8 upwards or younger pupils who have had Ballet training, assessed by your teacher as your taster session.
