The competitive full-time program allows students aged 7 and over to train a minimum of five hours per week. On average, these dancers dance 10 to 15 hours per week. Dancers must take a minimum of two ballet lessons and two technical jazz lessons per week which allows them to study an internationally recognized syllabus and to take exams each year. Students in this program have the chance to develop in several disciplines chosen from ballet, jazz, acro-dance, hip-hop, tap, broadway, lyric and contemporary.

Ballet gives the opportunity to the students to work on technique, gracefulness, flexibility and self esteem. Our ballet classes give students the chance to work with the syllabus of the british association of teachers of dancer (B.A.T.D.).

Broadway is a style of dance that combines jazz and theatre that allows dancers to get outside the box with their performance. The music that is often used for this type of class is musical theater.

Hip hop classes give the opportunity to dancers to learn different movements as well as many different energetic choreographies.

Tap dancing gives the opportunity to our dancers to discover rhythm with the help of different music styles. Our tap classes give the opportunity to the student to work with the syllabus of the associated dance arts for professional teachers (A.D.A.P.T.).

Acro dance combines tumbling, stands, contortion and other acrobatic skills to give the opportunity to students to work on strength and flexibility.

Contemporary classes are based on the experimentation of the dancers own bodies in movement with music and different spaces to create different unique choreographies.

Lyrical is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance styles and places emphasis on the expression of emotions based on the music and the choreography.

Jazz is an energetic style of dance that allows students to work on different skills such as jumps, turns and flexibility. Our jazz classes give the opportunity to dancers to work with the syllabus of the associated dance arts for professional teachers (A.D.A.P.T.).
