Please only attend sessions you are registered to attend. We will not allow anyone to join lessons without registering your interest prior to your arrival. For the safety of all members of Dance Studio 22, we must ensure there is availability in the classes you require. All students are put in sessions based on their ages, abilities and experience.
Ballet lessons are taught by Alex (seen in photo above), a Birmingham Royal Ballet graduate. Sessions lead to RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) exams.
Ballet is the base of all dance and the most important style for any budding dancer to train in. Ballet is a type of performance dance that originated during the Italian Renaissance in the fifteenth century and later developed into a concert dance. It has since become a widespread, highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary.
Acrobatic lessons are taught by Samantha and Alex. This style has been gaining more and more popularity over the years and has proven to be our most popular class. These sessions lead to Acrobatic Arts exams.
Acrobatic dance is an especially challenging style for dancers as it requires them to be trained in both dance and acrobatic skills. Its unique choreography seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics together.
Modern dance is a broad genre of theatrical dance. Classes are perfect for a stylistic dancer. It is the most popular sessions for students heavily interested in dance movement and performance. These sessions lead to IDTA exams skills.
Dance Studio 22 offers Contemporary lessons to students 9 years old+. This session is one of our more mature sessions that incorporates different Contemporary techniques created and or inspired by well-known Contemporary artists.
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several different genres of dance, including Modern, Jazz, Lyrical and classical Ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.
Dance Studio 22 offer Street Dance and Commercial in a single session. We do this to ensure versatility in our dancers.
This session includes, but not limited to; Grooving, Breaking, Hip Hop, Locking, Popping and House. These styles are all independent styles in their own right, each with their own history and foundations, each incredibly visually effective.
Lyrical is incorporated into Modern and Contemporary classes.
Lyrical dance is a dance style that embodies various aspects of Ballet, Jazz, Acrobatics and Modern dance. Lyrical dance is strongly associated with clearly displayed emotional moods, fast-moving choreographic strategies, embodying a story and illustrating the song lyrics.
