STYLES WE OFFER
A classical dance form focusing on grace and precision, a crucial and fundamental style for all dancers. Here at Motion Dance we offer graded classes from the ages of 4, with a focus in the early years of musical interpretation and character and later years moving on to technical steps, pointe work and professional qualifications. Ballet was Miss Mollies first teaching qualification achieved at the age of 17, “Ballet is where my love of dancing started, I turn a boring, basic ballet class into a fun learning experience for all!”.
Modern is a chance to let loose and have a bit of a groove! Teaching musicality, flexibility, passion and confidence, modern dance is a great discipline. Learn routines to your favourite songs whilst also progressing through grades. Graded classes are available from the ages of 4, so come and learn your leaps, jumps turns and jazz hands!
Tap brings another side to dance, as well as the musicality of the music you are using the musicality of your movements. Tap teaches rhythm, coordination, and most importantly patience when trying to master new steps. Miss Mollie offers graded classes and also the opportunity to explore Irish dancing and American style tap.
A real favourite amongst dance students, contemporary mixes ballet, modern and interpretive movements to create its own dance form. A newly written exam syllabus from N.A.T.D, offers students from Grade 1 upwards the opportunity to take contemporary graded examinations, we are one of the few schools currently offering this. Miss Mollie has been dancing contemporary since the age of 11, winning several prestigious awards and competitions. “I like to focus contemporary on freedom of movement, many of my routines have a lyrical flowing quality, but it’s a great discipline to try out some new, quirky ideas!”, Miss Mollie.
