The result can indeed be this. But to get it on stage requires long learning and practice. The body is moulded with strong and elegant muscles, with elastic ligaments and a strong heart.

It is a type of dance that trains the dancer/student in different qualities (lyrical, jazz, musical, contemporary). At the same time it strengthens the body and teaches the dancer technique through a structure of exercises for the whole body.
The goal is, to have a dancer ready and well prepared for different types of dance.
Important here, is the dancer’s expression (performance) in which the dancer is trained in each class through improvisation, the different emotion exercises, and through the different qualities of the exercises.
Free your movement and your body through contemporary dance!
Contemporary dance has dominated the world as one of the most important dance genres. It encourages creative freedom and artistic expression.
The syllabus (the syllabus) of the ISTD system, has been created by dancer and choreographer Dr Ross McKim and takes influence from choreographers Graham, Hawkins and Cohan. This syllabus helps students to gradually become familiar with the art of contemporary dance.

Acting, singing and dancing! The theatre in all its glory…
Every year we have more and more students in this class. This kind of dance theatre, has started to win over young and old alike because of the multifaceted requirements (singing, dancing and acting). Abroad it is already very widespread in theatre and cinema.
In our musicals class our students have a great time. The magic of the music, the lyricism of the lyrics combined with the dance movements and the theatricality create a magical environment where we all learn sooner or later to relax…dynamically.
Hip-hop dancing has evolved into one of the most popular dance styles. It combines a variety of free dynamic movements, creating an art form particularly popular with teenagers and allowing them to improvise and showcase their personal expression. This art combines strength, momentum, balance and creativity.
Over the years, various steps have become popular, such as: pops, chest pops and others, but the key element remains personal expression as students are able to improvise or perform a movement in their own way.
