Dance Fusion

What can I expect from a MOUVE Dance Fusion class?

A fusion of Modern dance and Lyrical with a splash of Street dance, students will learn a range of technical steps and sequences together with stretching and limbering. Classes are aimed at improving flexibility and core strength as a dancer, and explosive dance routines are taught covering a variety of styles.

We follow the ISTD syllabus and optional ISTD Modern Jazz exams are available at the teacher’s discretion. This technical and energetic dance class promotes fitness, dance technique, dance repertoire, strength and flexibility.

What should I wear?

All dance fusion students must wear:

  • Plain black short-sleeved leotard or long-sleeved pink and black exam leotard
  • Own plain black leggings or black exam stirrup-tights
  • Pink ballet shoes or black jazz shoes
  • MOUVE or any DWL T-shirt for warm-up

Please email the office to receive our uniform list.

Any other information I ought to know?

Dance Fusion is usually done in bare feet, but due to current DofSE guidelines, ALL pupils must wear footwear. We recommend split-sole jazz shoes or pink ballet shoes.

What can I expect from a MOUVE Ballet class?

We follow the world renowned RAD syllabus where children will receive a formal training working on set exercises and choreographed routines. Students will develop poise, grace, flexibility, stamina and confidence, whilst learning new Ballet skills.

No previous experience is required for our classes but do contact us to find the most suitable class for you. Pointe work is offered to the higher grades when pupils are ready and at the teacher’s discretion.

Students are entered for exams once ready and at the teacher’s discretion (Exams are optional but encouraged, as a formal and confidence-boosting way of formally recording your child’s progress as well as the invaluable life experience that taking these exams bring.)

What should I wear?

All ballet students must wear:

  • Pink ballet tights
  • Ballet skirt and leotard with an optional cardigan in the colour appropriate for their grade
  • Pink ballet shoes with elastics

Any other information I ought to know?

Ballet is the core of all dance and the best place for any student to start their dance journey. As such, our classes start from age 3 years. We encourage parents not to stay in the class. Students should come ready to dance and have fun!
