Young Performers Dance Course (YPDC)

Is a professional Dance program for children, which focuses on fitness-conditioning workout taught by highly experienced dance education professionals.  Class work consists of a cardio and strength building warm-up, stretching to achieve Splits, backbends, bone and joint alignment and developing a vocabulary of steps and combinations. Students will be given targets of achieving body flexibility and strength during their course. The class also focuses on developing coordination, body awareness, build self-esteem and musicality. Learn the fundamental Hip-Hop and street styles including basic body isolations, precision, performance quality and choreography. This is a fantastic opportunity for dancers to get into shape for further dance training and also a great way for students to get a head start and feel comfortable in new styles of dance that they haven’t tried before. A progress report of the student will be given at the end of each term, which will specify what level the child best fits in at.  All music and movement is age-appropriate.

Each class will begin with a basic Kalaripayattu warm-up (south Indian martial arts), which helps build leg strength and general conditioning designed to increase flexibility and strength on the whole. During the heart of the class the students will take turns learning the fundamentals/elements/routines of Aerial silk as per their level. This class is a great way for kids to explore their natural creativity and playfulness while increasing general fitness levels. The class ends with a little ballet routine that helps bring in Grace in their extremities. We place strong emphasis on technique, proper alignment and safety, taking into consideration the individual physicality of each student.
