Full Time College
Seniors – Ages 13 and over
Our Senior Classes are longer in length and challenge and push students more than ever before. Students who have a great ballet technique, good strength, turn out and who have been dancing an appropriate amount of years might progress onto our Pointe classes (at the teacher’s discretion and judgement).
Dance exams are optional. At this age students tend to be ambitious and work hard towards their annual graded exams ensuring they progress and their exam marks are as high as they can be.
Our Musical Theatre Class is longer to allow for more rehearsal time for shows. Our Senior students combine with our Juniors to take part in the end of year musical every June at a local theatre. Our Seniors are considered Role Models within our school and relish the chance to work with younger students and pass on performance tips and techniques when we perform the annual Musical. We encourage students to also explore taking part in Musical Theatre and Acting Solo examinations – a great way to achieve a worldwide recognised qualification, expand skills and have fun.
Our classes are focussed and structured to allow the senior student time to develop and find their own individual style of performance and develop skills such as improvisation which is an important skill for individual performance and auditions. We have a support system in place to recognise where a student may want to train for the profession and we can prepare them for college auditions.
