Examination classes - (ISTD) Ballet, Tap & Modern (LAMDA) Drama

Non examination classes - Jazz , Singing & Melody Bear

Drama at DFTS follows the LAMDA syllabus for Acting and Verse & Prose. This is a motivated class for boys and girls that will help each child grow in confidence. Through improvisation, mime, vocal exercises and script work, children will develop excellent social skills and improve their self-esteem and conversational ability.

This discipline follows the ISTD syllabus and is thought of as the foundation of all dance disciplines. This graceful style of dance will improve a child’s posture, strength, balance and teaches self-discipline and control.

Modern dance at DFTS follows the ISTD syllabus and works on structured exercises and amalgamations. From a young age the emphasis is on improving natural movements such as walking, skipping, running and jumping, progressing to more complex steps and sequences as students get older.

Tap dance at DFTS follows the ISTD syllabus and works on structured exercises, amalgamations and dances. Learning to tap will teach children the enjoyment of dance through the different sounds and rhythms that they create.

Our Jazz classes cover various styles of dance from commercial to lyrical. The focus throughout these classes is on fitness, core strength, flexibility and learning a dance routine. This class is aimed at boys and girls who want to be a part of the upbeat dance scene without the pressure of exams.

This discipline is for boys and girls wanting to learn and improve on their vocal technique. Within these classes students will work on warm-up and breathing exercises and explore a variety of sounds and techniques, to improve their vocal range. Students will cover a varied repertoire of music, incorporating harmonies and solo work.

Melody Bear Pre-School classes encourage children to safely learn the basic steps of ballet, tap, music and movement in a way that is appropriate for a child’s level of physical development. Classes are tailored to discovering and fulfilling the potential of each child, nurturing their creative development.
