With the new year, comes a new plan for our soloists performers.
The decision has been made, in order for a dancer to learn a particular style routine, they must be enrolled into the corresponding technique class.
For example, for a Jazz solo, the dancer must be enrolled into a jazz class. This is the same for all styles of dance, Tap, Classical, Contemporary, Hip Hop and more.
WHY? Solo time slots are allocated to dancers to learn & perfect one or more routines in their designated time. Dancer’s are not breaking down & learning the technique / skill behind the routine which is required to perform the style; this is what’s taught in classes.
For other styles, dancers must participate in the following:
Character – Classical
National – Classical
Song & Dance – Jazz, Classical or Tap depending on the style selected for this routine.
Lyrical – Classical or Contemporary
Anyone who is enrolled in a class at Danceworks 114.
Private lessons are charged at $55.00 per hour for a Senior Teacher or $35.00 per hour for a Junior Teacher.
SENIOR TEACHERS: Tia, Kristy, Lacey, Elise, Bonnie, Allie, Gill & Charli R
JUNIOR TEACHERS: Sarah, Charlie J, Chelsea & Tayissa
Dancers can pick one or more teachers for their lessons which can run for 15min, 20min or 30mins depending on the dancers age, ability & number of routines to learn & rehearse.
If you are unsure which teacher to select for your dancer and their preferred style, please see our staff profiles on the website or come and have a chat to one of us.
CHAMPIONSHIPS: For a dancer to learn & perform a championship dance in any style they have to have placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd (HM in some circumstances) in their open section at a recent eisteddfod to qualify.
We run from Monday to Saturday however, class timetabling always takes priority over private lessons therefore they are scheduled around classes and teacher availability.
