Modern Jazz
Modern Lyrical
Modern Theatre
Modern Jazz
Jazz dance, although it often has a formal choreographic basis, is strongly emotional and improvisational. The way a jazz dancer reacts to the music or to the narrative in one performance will likely be different from her reaction in another, simply because her emotional response, which arises at the moment, will never be quite the same twice.

Modern Lyrical
Lyrical dancers often perform to music with lyrics. The lyrics of the chosen song serve as inspiration for the dancers' movements and expressions. Music used for lyrical dance is typically emotionally charged and expressive. The musical genres used in lyrical dance include pop, rock, blues, hip-hop, ethnic and world music and different forms of "downtown" contemporary music, such as minimalism.

Modern Theatre
Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps, and turns which all need strength and flexibility.

What To Wear
Students are requested to arrive for their class with the uniform appropriate to their grade or level. Female students should have their hair neatly tied back and students in Grades 1 and up should have their hair in a bun. In the interests of health and safety and safe dance practice, jewellery must not be worn, unless for religious or cultural reasons. If it is a students’ first class or trial class they are not expected to wear uniform and can wear something that they can move in easily. If prospective students do not have a leotard and skirt, they can wear leggings and a t-shirt or skirt and bare feet.
