What we offer

At SDS our dance styles include Classical Ballet, Classical Extensions, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, Acrobatics and Combo Classes.

Classical Ballet

A graceful and romantic style that develops the correct dance technique, body posture and alignment for all other forms of dance. It is a must for all dance enthusiasts.

Classical Extensions

Classical Extension classes are designed for the committed dancer who seeks to strengthen their technique and to be further challenged. 

Contemporary

Contemporary is a style of dance that requires the technique of classical ballet, yet pushes the boundaries to achieve a more abstract visual representation.

Hip Hop

This style utilises the latest R ‘n’ B and Hip Hop music and moves from video clips and club dancing. Born in the Bronx, Hip Hop is a highly energetic and popular dance style.

Jazz

An energetic, modern form of dance in which students are trained to stretch and strengthen muscles through specifically designed exercises. This very exciting style is used in many musical theatre productions.  

Tap

A very percussive style of dance based on beats and rhythms. It has become more popular over the years. Tap skills are a necessity for students wishing to audition for musical theatre productions.

Acrobatics

Acrobatics for Dance, often called “Acro Dance” is a style that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements.

Combo Classes

We offer Kinder Ballet/Jazz Combo classes, Prep Tap/Ballet/Jazz Combo classes, Level 1 & 2 Tap/Ballet/Jazz Combo classes. These classes are a great introduction to the various dance styles.

Why Dance?

Dance training is an enjoyable hobby and has many physical benefits including improved posture, co-ordination, strength, flexibility and bone density. It also develops children’s awareness of spatial relations, concentration and memory, whilst being a creative outlet for personal expression. Dance in a positive learning environment is a wonderful adjunct to a balanced education. It is also a great social activity to meet with old friends and make new friendships too.

Testimonials

All four of my daughters have danced at SDS over the past eight years. SDS offers quality dance training in a supportive, friendly environment. The teachers are fantastic and make it such a happy place for the students. SDS lives by its motto “Where every child shines”. The concerts are always a highlight of the year. My girls love being part of the SDS community.

Michaela Fox 

We have been with SDS for eight years now and it has been a wonderful journey. As a three year old when my daughter started it was very much about coordination, movement and fun. It has been wonderful watching all the girls dancing develop over the years and every teacher we have had has been amazing, 100% supportive and always full of encouragement no matter what “level” the girls are within the group. I couldn’t recommend SDS any more, it is a truly caring environment where everybody grows and shines.
