Technique Classes

Technical dance courses are an industry standard of tuition in a structured format.

Structured technique classes followed by an examination of a students abilities is a dance industry accepted method of tuition and skill building.
In a recent survey of past and present World Champions, nearly all had completed technical examination courses. Some dancers even completing their exams as both leader (man) and follower (lady)!
Students commence at the Bronze level and work their way up through Silver, Gold, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond. The pinnacle of the examination program is the Platinum level where a student is required to complete 10 dances for their examination.
Routines of a suitable difficulty level for each examination level are taught and then danced on one of our “Examination Days”. A qualified adjudicator asseses the performances, and awards are presented for a satisfactory standard at that level.
At each higher level, the routines become more difficult, and a higher level of technique and styling is also expected.

I’m not sure I’m ready for Exams?

Examination courses provide a systematic, graduated approach to learning all dance styles, much like “belts” in Karate. They provide great goals for each student to work towards. Our casual group classes and examination courses are designed to complement each other.

I don’t want to do the examination but still want to do the course.

If you do not want to dance in front of an examiner, you can complete the course(s) without completing the examination(s).  Towards the end of each course we provide you with a progress check and feedback.  If you are ready we recommend that you complete the examination, but it is always your choice.

How much does it cost?

Courses are just $250.00 (10 x $25.00 direct debit payments) which covers all lessons and the examination fees.  For levels above Gold, students complete a minimum of 6 private lessons at $90.00 per lesson. Two individul students at the same advanced level can also share private lessons.
