CLASSES IN DANCE-
Dance promotes discipline, co-ordination, memory, flexibility, strength, line, grace & stamina. Toddlers love to move, stretch & jump. Teachers can introduce children to new ways of moving their bodies in entertaining & constructive ways. All forms of dance & creative movement can be beneficial & introducing your child to dance is one of the greatest gifts you can give to them.
We hear at Harmonys believe in dance. We believe in its power to build self-confidence, self-expression and creativity. We believe in its discipline, its technique & the character it builds regardless of the challenges it presents to us. We believe in dance as an art form, in its ability to help develop & define the individual.
Styles of dance we teach at Harmonys- Tap, Modern, Ballet, Acro, National & Streetdance
CLASSES IN DRAMA-
Drama teaches the importance of concentration & trust & uses a combination of games & exercises to encourage enjoyment & confidence in the children. The younger classes use play & role-play to explore the different ways we can communicate with others. The older classes move on to explore the techniques important to perform to an audience; engagement, empathy and clarity. Every aspect of drama is catered for from improvisation to script work, monologues to accents.
CLASSES IN SINGING-
Singing classes will involve learning songs from the West End musical theatre to contemporary rock and pop. Breath control along with other techniques is taught so that each student reaches their full potential but in the correct way. Although the class involves group singing, students are encouraged to take on solo lines in order to build their confidence and feel able to sing on their own. Performing builds positive self-esteem and confidence.
