P R O G R A M S

We have enough dance classes to do a different one each day of the week. Why so many classes?

They have been designed for different personalities and different outcomes.

Dance and drama are the perfect way to engage in roleplay activities building upon social skills and storytelling.

Choosing the right class truly depends on what you or your child want from the outcome.

Each class has a purpose both artistically and socially. Read through the descriptions below and if you need further help,

don't hesitate to reach out to us.

“Thank you for your patience, persistence, love and care that you give to all your students. Keep on Rocking.”

BALLETSTRUCTURE
 

At Rockit we flip traditional Ballet on its head, taking a modern approach to classical education. Students study RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) technique, rehearsing and performing with modern music and concepts. Often called a Dancers Foundation, ballet teaches body control, balance, agility and core strength. Rockit’s ballet program is fantastic for developing focus, attention to detail, self-discipline, respect and appreciation.

 

LYRICAL / CONTEMPORARY – SELF-EXPRESSION

 

Lyrical involves a high level of dance technique performed to a meaningful song (powerful lyrics). Lyrical teaches emotional expression and storytelling through movement. Movement is graceful with a hint of acrobatics.

Intermediate and Senior students are able to explore contemporary dance which is challenges the students to communicate feelings and stories without relying on lyric based music. It challenges the more mature dancer both physically and intellectually.

”Rockit has been a huge blessing. I've watched my daughter blossom and have a confidence in herself that was lacking for so long.
I feel like we've gained a second " family" with other families whose children attend and to the staff, especially you Noni.
The encouragement you've given in not only my daughter but in every single child that comes through your doors is beautiful.
You see the strengths in every one of them and help them be the best they can be”.
