Classical ballet has long been considered the foundation of all dance styles. It assists in developing correct posture, weight placement, coordination, core strength and control. Students who take part in ballet classes at DSV are trained in the Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD) method which is recognised in dance circles throughout Australia and in many other parts of the world. Students participating in ballet classes will also have the opportunity to sit examinations which can lead to dance teaching qualifications in later years.
Jazz is a fun, energetic class that combines technique with the latest moves. Students will learn how to safely turn and jump and will develop further coordination, flexibility and expressive skills while improving their fitness levels.
Tap is a percussive style of dance that is performed wearing specially designed shoes with small metal tap plates attached to the soles of them. Tap classes will help students to develop rhythm and musicality whilst using their feet as the instrument!

Hip Hop has grown in popularity over the last five years. It is an urban style of dance that has a strong focus on developing ‘individuality’. The most recognisable forms of hip hop are demonstrated in music video clips and in popular movies such as ‘Step Up’ and ‘Honey’.
Contemporary/Lyrical is an ever-changing dance style that encourages free and expressive movement.
In Acrobatics classes, students will work to improve their flexibility and strength of movement which assists in developing the strong and versatile dancer. Starting with the basics, such as cartwheels and handstands, students will work their way up to more complex acrobatic combinations.
