Difficulty Levels

Beginners’ – absolutely all welcome! Whether you’ve never danced before, or if you’ve done a little bit before but you’re feeling rusty, our beginners’ classes are fun, relaxed and a great way to improve your coordination, meet new people and try something different. You will learn basic technique and a number of basic moves (such as pirouettes, kicks and leaps in lyrical and jazz and tap springs and time steps in tap), and then start learning one routine in preparation for the optional (but highly recommended) show in Lent term.

Intermediate – for those who have at least one year of dance experience. Tap, lyrical and jazz classes are pitched at about ISTD grade 4 level and above. Some knowledge of kicks, leaps and turns expected in lyrical and jazz, and knowledge of a good range of basic steps, such as time steps, riffs and cramp rolls, expected in tap. Classes will generally consist of a mixture of technique, particularly at the start of term, before starting work on two routines to perform in the annual show in Lent term.

Advanced – for those with at least three years of dance experience. Tap, lyrical and jazz classes are pitched at about ISTD grade 6 and above. A fairly high level of technique is expected in all styles, such as ability to perform a double pirouette in lyrical and jazz and ability to perform pull backs and Maxie Fords in tap. Classes will generally consist of a mixture of technique, particularly at the start of term, before starting work on two routines to perform in the annual show in Lent term.

These are very much just guidelines, so if you’re unsure which class to attend we recommend that you try a few and see which level suits you best. If you have any queries do get in touch with any members of the committee.
