Primary Combo is a combination program designed by Diversity Dance! Register for a style combination that suits your child’s interests! Each 45-minute dance class incorporates two styles of dance – which can include tap, jazz, ballet or acro.
Every class, students will work on each dance style through set exercises, centre floor and free movement to learn dance steps, terminology, proper arm and feet positions, and build a strong dance foundation.
Our Primary Combo program is designed to teach dance knowledge, improve coordination and flexibility, and develop physical and social skills in a developmentally appropriate environment. Above learning just dance steps, students will gain confidence, focus and a positive self-image. This combination program is sure to keeping our primary level students engaged and growing into budding little dancers!
What to expect in our Primary Combo classes:
Acro – Dancers will learn and practice different skills on the acro mats such as cartwheels, rolls, bridges and splits. It combines classical dance technique with acrobatic elements. Diversity follows the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus. Diversity provides dancers with gymnastic grade mats and equipment for safety.
Ballet – Diversity’s ballet program is focused on improving grace, poise, technique and strength. Our ballet classes are composed of barre work, across the floor, free movement and centre exercises. Diversity follows the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus.
Jazz – Jazz dance focuses on flexibility, strength and technique. A strong technical base combined with creativity, style and body awareness makes this a fun, fast paced and energetic style. Diversity follows the ADAPT Jazz syllabus.
Tap – Tap dance is based on developing coordination, rhythm and style. Students will learn to count to the music, follow the beat and use their feet as a musical instrument. Dancers work on basic tap steps while dancing together and creating rhythms as a group. Diversity follows the ADAPT Tap syllabus.
