Dance at MTA

Dance is an integral part of musical theatre.

The Jazz classes held three times a week, aims to develop flexibility and strength in order that the student can perform with energy, speed, stamina, co-ordination and control. Students will develop the ability to learn routines and retain corrections.

A Classical Ballet class is taken three times a week. This is the foundation for all the other dance disciplines and aims to develop the student's understanding of stance, line, placement, use of floor and turn-out.

The Pas De Deux classes will enable the student to perform with care, consideration and coordination when working with a partner. They will develop an ability to respond to the energy and timing of their partner in a variety of musical styles.

The Tap class will enable the student to build up a vocabulary of steps, learn a repertoire of combinations, develop competence in differing tap styles and perform with versatility and a sense of dynamics.

The Street Jazz class focuses on commercial dance for pop videos, fashion and trade shows. In this, the student will learn a variety of street jazz styles.

The Contemporary dance class is taught using body mechanics, technique and conditioning to enable the student to dance with control, energy and dynamics.

The Musical Theatre classes will focus mainly on style and learning repertoire from West End shows and will also work on combining song and dance from term 1.

We will also be taking Pilates and Body Conditioning classes and during our specialist weeks will focus on certain styles and areas of dance.
