ADULT BALLETWe believe in keeping with the classical traditions in ballet and are committed to the aesthetics and appreciation of ballet as an art form. The adult ballet classes are non-syllabus classes and are taught by highly experienced RAD teachers. The class consists of traditional barre and center work taught in a disciplined, progression-oriented manner with attention given to both the technical and artistic aspects of dance.

ADULT POINTEPointe work is an essential skill required for ballet dancers heading towards vocational grades and professional status. It is important that pupils contemplating pointe work are both mature and physically strong enough to attempt the complex skill to avoid injury. That is why at STSDS, we take great time and care in teaching our students pointe work, guaranteeing their safety and gradual progression, developing strength and technique.

CONTEMPORARYContemporary introduces total beginners to the world of contemporary dance and self-expression drawing upon elements of contemporary technique in a structured, progressive, incremental curriculum. Students can expect to improve balance, posture and alignment, through movement sequences and technical exercises that develop over the course period.

CONTEMPORARY CHOREOGRAPHYThis class offers students a unique opportunity to experience and explore a movement vocabulary blended from various Contemporary Dance techniques. This cumulative series gives dancers an introduction to contemporary choreography and routines combining the fundamental techniques of contemporary and other genres of dance such as jazz, lyrical, ballet and more. The class will be paced and specifically tailored to match the needs and requirements of those participating.

Fundamental & Technique ClassesAlso suitable for complete beginners and those with some basic knowledge of dance, these classes allow dancers to engage in formal as well as informal free-styling. These classes provide the beginning of formal training, taught slowly and carefully to help you build your basic skills giving you a solid foundation, ideal for people who’ve never danced before.

You will learn new techniques and new moves on a regular basis that will enhance your dancing skills and gain a better understanding of the music, body co-ordination and step variation.

BREAKDANCEFour basic elements form the foundation of breaking. The first is Toprock, a term referring to the upright dancing and shuffles. The second element is Downrock which refers to footwork dancing performed on the floor. The third element is the Freeze, the poses that breakers throw into their dance sets to add punctuation to certain beats and end their routines. The fourth element is the Power Moves, acrobatic moves made up of circular motions where the dancer will spin on the floor or in the air.

POPPINGPopping is one of the most complex dance style, used as an umbrella term to refer to a group of closely related illusionary dance styles and techniques that are often integrated with popping to create a more varied performance, such as the robot, waving and tutting.

Choreography Classes

Choreography classes focus on teaching the underlying foundation of a dance style. They break down the movements and utilize drills to instill these movements in your muscle memory. The classes combine movements to create one-of-a-kind choreography pieces. Dance styles such as Hip Hop are very choreography-focused by nature, and thus, you're constantly applying the technique you learn into various choreographed routines.

NEW SCHOOL HIP HOPNew School Hip Hop or LA Style is a mix of clean, up-to-date moves based on hip hop, house, jazz, tap, locking and popping. The style differs from the underground hip hop with advanced rhythm, plastic, elegant manner and borrowed from jazz elements. Dancers are meant to look like they’re unwinding, unraveling and floating. Expect isolations (especially of the chest), slow, fluid movements (like gliding and body waves) and contemporary-inspired turns (but not pirouettes).

LYRICAL HIP HOPLyrical hip-hop is a fluid more interpretive version of LA Style most often danced to downtempo rap music or R&B music. What makes it unique is that your dance movements have to tell a story to the lyrics of a song. In this class, the choreography is focusing on the vocal ad libs of the song and dancers ability to hit the same rhythm, as well as the ability to be sharp and strong. Understand the lyrics so you really make the song come to life with the emotions of it.

MTV DANCEImmerse yourself in the MTV world and learn how to dance MTV style. Learn new choreography each month to the latest MTV hits. The class is a combination of street, commercial pop and modern jazz moves based movements seen on music videos and the latest US and UK pop music to really keep the classes up beat!

KPOP DANCE COVERSPassionate about Korean pop culture? Students will learn techniques and basic choreographies using movement that evolved from the music videos. Each week, we'll be bringing you hot new music and new dances to keep you excited and working hard when you dance to the likes of BEAST, 2NE1, Super Junior, Big Bang, SHINee and many more.

Girls Choreography Classes

If our regular choreography classes are too masculine for you and you prefer a more feminine quality in the choreography, the Girls Choreography is the class for you! There choreography classes focus on teaching the underlying foundation of a dance style. They break down the movements and utilize drills to instill these movements in your muscle memory. The classes combine movements to create one-of-a-kind choreography pieces. Dance styles such as Hip Hop are very choreography-focused by nature, and thus, you're constantly applying the technique you learn into various choreographed routines.

GIRL'S HIP HOPGirl's Hip Hop is a fluid and more feminine interpretive version of new style hip-hop most often danced to downtempo rap music or R&B music. It is commanly described as "hip-hop with emotion". Expect isolations (especially of the chest), slow, fluid movements (like gliding and body waves) and contemporary-inspired turns (but not pirouettes). There's popping, but not the hard-hitting kind. Dancers are meant to look like they're unwinding, unraveling and floating.

GIRL'S STYLEFind the girl inside and learn to embrace this side of you in our Girl's style class! If Hip hop is too masculine for you and you prefer a more feminine quality in the choreography, this is the class for you!

STREET JAZZStreet Jazz (also called jazz funk) is a hybrid of hip-hop and jazz dance. Although it borrows from hip-hop dance, it is not considered a style of hip-hop because the foundational movements are jazz. Combining both basic technical jazz elements and hip-hop, these classes help you learn all the moves performed by these top pop artists.
