RSM Tap students will study all aspects of Tap Dance including musicality, syncopation and rhythm. Our Tap teacher is a highly experienced and professional teacher who incorporates a fun element into this class alongside a highly technical aspect. Tap is a specialised subject that can be extremely intricate, requires dedication and lots of practice.
Students also take part in live performances showcasing their progression each time. Students are given the opportunity to study for exams at the academy. For more information on the exams please send us a message.
RSM Ballet students will study all aspects of classical ballet under Lisa’s guidance. They will learn the French terminology and English translations and how this is interpreted into ballet and also anatomy and how the body works.
Our Ballet teacher is highly experienced and with her expertise she will guide you through several stretches and techniques at the Barre, along with centre work. This will also include Allegro and Adagio. Ballet students will also take part in several performances including our local showcases learning traditional Ballet Choreography. There will also be an option for students who wish to take exams at the academy. For more information on the exams please send us a message.
RSM Contemporary students will experience and learn an array of techniques with Contemporary Dance. Contemporary allows for freedom and expression in dance through the exploration of techniques established by dance pioneers such as Laban, Cunningham, Graham and Brown. Pushing ourselves to our individual limits while embodying our emotion and intention in movement, we explore how movement can change its purpose through elements such as levels, pace, dynamics and resistance.
Our contemporary students often create for themselves a movement that is out of the ordinary, out of their comfort zone and spontaneous. Contemporary dance allows them to become well-rounded dancers and open minded.
RSM Jazz students will learn an array of techniques focusing on centre and corner work, along with learning the many different characteristics and styles of Jazz. We will cover the main elements of Street Jazz, Broadway/Musical Theatre Jazz, Contemporary and Lyrical Jazz. Our Jazz classes can be patterned in any of these styles or even a combination of them.
RSM Jazz students will also learn new routines, adapting their techniques learnt into the material taught. Students will also learn the different vocabulary. For example the isolation of certain body parts to the movement of the entire body with the accents of musical rhythms. Emphasis is on the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy, style, control of movements and technique.
Each of our Jazz students have their own style they are particularly talented in, which makes this class extra special allowing further creativity and development in our students. Jazz students will also feature in live performances at our local showcases and potentially in a variety of new projects.
