PRE-SCHOOL ACRO AND DANCE 

For our little pre-school age dancers (ages 3- 4.5  yrs )we offer  a one hour combined Acro/Dance class

This combined 1 hour class features the acclaimed ACROBATIC ARTS PRESCHOOL programme- this programme focuses on physical literacy.  It is not designed to teach children back handsprings - but features such skills as Pike, Plie, skipping, marching, pre-cartwheel, tendu etc. - skills which crossover with dance.  The focus of this programme includes learning the acro positions, locomotive skills (jumping, hopping etc.), balance skills, classroom behaviour skills, movement concepts, cooperation and social skills.  The Dance section of the class continues to build on these elements and introduces students to basic jazz technique , vocabulary and choreography which culminate in our Midyear and end of year concerts where students will perform both an acrobatic and jazz piece for the pleasure of their families.

 

ADULT RECREATIONAL CLASSES:  Ages 18 - 40  Offering Jazz, Ballet Technique and conditioning, Contemporary- these are ideal classes for those who either have some previous experience or who are joining for the first time.  Some floor work is involved.

JAZZ

Jazz is a fun and eclectic style of dance which uses elements from many of the main dance styles seen today. If you want to dance like the people in music videos, Jazz is for you! It incorporates strength, flexibility, isolation movements and performance. 

Starting from 5 yrs and going all the way through to our adult students these classes allow students to benefit from excellent technical training and there is the choice to be involved in either competitive* (see below) or recreational teams.  All students enjoy the opportunity to be involved with our midyear performance and end of year shows where they can showcase their skills to family and friends.

 

HIP HOP
Hip Hop is fast becoming one of the most popular dance styles. As seen in such movies as Step Up and Street Dance, Hip Hop combines Popping, Locking, Wacking and Breaking styles.  We have classes available for students from 5 yrs of age up and yes, we love to have boys along to these classes!

 

 

 

 

CONTEMPORARY/LYRICAL
Adelaide is host to some of Australia's finest Contemporary dance companies including Australian Dance Theatre and Leigh Warren and Dancers. Contemporary dance is extremely popular with all ages as it is a free flowing, expressive dance style incorporating fall and recovery, contract and release, acrobatic like movement, and elements of ballet technique.  Students enrolling for contemporary and lyrical classes greatly benefit from also including ballet in their enrolment as both these forms find their basis in ballet.

 

 

 

R.A.D CLASSICAL BALLET

At PIVOTAL DANCE we provide  R.A.D syllabus Classical Ballet classes. Classical Ballet is an art form dating back to the courts of Europe and can be said to be the foundation of all other dance styles - so we encourage all students to use ballet as their foundation class in developing overall good technique.  Ballet combines graceful, precise movement with athelticism. It is a fabulous form of exercise, giving overall body conditioning. This class will help students gain strength, flexibility, musicality, and co-ordination.  

Whilst students may choose to attend just a single ballet class each week,  for those wishing to further their technique Graded exam classes involving additional lessons can be taken with students sitting annual exams

 

 

ACROBATICS:  Pivotal Dance is an accredited ACROBATIC ARTS studio. In a fun packed 60 minute lesson students learn skills such as tumbling, cartwheels, aerials, walk-overs and much much more. Our Acrobatic  Coaches offer classes from ages 3+ with a strong emphasis on both technique and safety in performing the movements.  Please note:  class levels are skill based so new students will be assessed by our coaches to determine the correct level for their existing skill set.
