Once children reach Year 3 at school all dance styles are taken as individual subjects in our Unlimited Core classes. Each class is 45 minutes long, allowing plenty of time to master the skills involved in each style and have lots of fun. Children can pick one class or multiple classes to enjoy each week.
Our ballet classes are designed to introduce your child to the magical world of ballet. We structure our classes using hand picked exercises from the 3 major dance associations in the UK – IDTA, RAD and ISTD, ensuring your child has a well rounded ballet class and a positive experience from the beginning. Optional examinations are available with the IDTA as well as our ever popular bi-annual dance show held at Sheffield City Hall. Ballet offers a good technical foundation for all dance styles. It teaches good posture and poise, expression and imagination as well as working on strength, grace, musicality and self discipline.
We strongly encourage all our pupils to take ballet class.
We follow the IDTA syllabus for children’s Tap grades which are great for developing strong rhythms, good ankle actions and a solid understanding for tap dancing. As well as teaching the IDTA syllabus, we strongly believe in teaching different styles of tap including traditional, stomp style and american tap and regularly mix our classes up by using various music styles.
Street Dance/ Commercial Dance
A great, fun class where the fundamentals of street dance are taught. Using the latest chart and pop music, children learn new and funky moves for both individual and group routines. At Dance Unlimited we believe a varied and fun approach to street dance works best so not only do we work towards IDTA examinations in Street Dance, we also work towards showcases and competitions as and when as well as just dancing for fun! From aged 9 years, commercial style street dance is taught which further develops musicality, style and performance.
These classes work on developing flexibility in a safe environment as well as developing strength, pick up speed and different styles of dance. These skills are used to perfect turns, leaps, tricks & tumbles as well as developing choreography and general dance skills such as splits and kicks.
For students who want to take their training one step further the Performance Team is perfect. The Performance Team classes are jazz based and focus on preparing for local performances, learning routines, working together and developing performance skills. All students in Team are required to take ballet to help build a strong foundation for all styles of dance as well as two other subjects of their choice.
A fun, progressive class where tricks, tumbles, flexibility and strength are developed. Our Acro class is perfect for kids who are always leaping and cartwheeling around! We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus and children progress through the levels, ticking off their new found skills as they go. The classes work on developing flexibility for kicks, spits and leaps as well a strength for acrobatic tricks such as cartwheels, walk overs and head stands.
A fusion of contemporary dance, ballet and theatre moves to form a dance class that all pre teens and teens love. This dance style has risen in popularity since TV programmes such as Dance Moms and So You Think You Can Dance and is great for developing self expression & confidence as well as flexibility and strength.
