Ordinary Meets Extraordinary

Annual Ballet Camp & Recital

PRINCIPAL'S NOTE

Experience and exposure in a variety of dance styles are important for creating versatile dancers and a necessity for aspiring professionals.

The Ballet Academy's Annual Ballet Camp & Recital aims to encourage our young dancers to bring out the very best in them. During the 3 days, participants will be exposed to and experience dance forms such as Ballet (non-syllabus), Hip Hop, Jazz and Contemporary.

Hip Hop (Level 1 only)

Through hip-hop, participants are permitted freedom of self-expression and the ability to turn energy into creativity. Without the demands and technicalities of ballet, we hope to promote expression and innovation.

 

Broadway Jazz (Level 1 only)

Using music typical of that found in a Broadway show, the choreography of Broadway Jazz focuses on story-telling of scenes and songs from musicals old and new. Students will learn to bring characterization to the choreography, defining a character, stage presentation and learning to master the various musical theatre techniques and styles.  The style is very bold, quirky, athletic, showy and definitely, lots of fun!

 

Jazz (Level 2 only)

Jazz is based upon natural body movements and requires fluidity. This dance style can be slow and dreamlike one moment while sharp and abrupt the next moment. Through jazz, we hope participants will better understand their body movements and translate it in their dance performance.

K-Pop (Level 2 & 3)

K-pop is a music genre originating in South Korea. Dance is an integral part of K-pop.

When combining multiple singers, the singers often switch their positions while singing and dancing by making prompt movements in synchrony. The K-pop choreography often includes the so-called "point dance", referring to a dance made up of hooking and repetitive movements within the choreography that matches the characteristics of the lyrics and tempo of the song.

Tempo is a key component in K-pop choreography.

Contemporary (Level 3 only)

The beauty of contemporary dance form lies in the limitless possibilities of exploring creativity first. It is versatile and compliments the natural alignment of the body. In contemporary form of dancing, you are taught how to use gravity and transitions, quite the opposite of classical ballet. Through contemporary, dancers will learn how to use their body for enhanced movement.

Experience and exposure to the different dance forms allows dancers to get a taste of alternative ways of moving and become well-rounded dancers. 

With love,

Joyce, Principal
