Musical Theatre / Song and Dance
Many of our classes teach a syllabus established by the Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD). Find out about opportunities to complete ATOD examinations with Encore on our opportunities page (coming soon).
Ballet was the first dance form to be standardised, and is the foundation of most Western dance forms. Students will learn ballet vocabulary, posture, body alignment and artistry. This discipline is essential for any student looking to pursue higher levels of jazz, contemporary or lyrical as nearly all of the vocabulary for these disciplines comes from ballet.
