Dance is undoubtedly a guarantee of health and physical fitness. It is indispensable for children at any age. Dance is creativity revealing the child’s individuality. Dance helps to build confidence and frees from complexes. Children’s dance relaxes, contributes to their aesthetic development, trains music hearing, a sense of rhythm, and the coordination of movement. It improves flexibility, posture, gate and figure.

Regular dance classes broaden children’s outlook, raise their self-awareness and self-expression. The skills gained during dance classes will help the child’s authority among peers and will allow him/her to be a star during social events at school. The teachers of our dance school will do their best to find the right approach to and mutual understanding with each child.

Dance Course Curriculum:

During the first lessons we will do the stretching, study the positions of legs/feet and arms/hands. Then we will study various dances, which we will present at festive events, concerts, contests, competitions in Dublin and all over Ireland.

Please, note that the current time-table is subject to changes. We reserve the right to cancel a class announced in the time-table if no regular students intend to come. Therefore, we would really appreciate it if new customers informed us of their intention to attend a class for the first time.

To find the perfect time for your class see our timetable here 

Hip-Hop is performed on the dance floor and on the stage of a club in the form of an improvisation and connectives in the style of GO-GO Dance. The space limitations do not allow a wide use of breaking elements; therefore, the Hip-Hip “Top” Dance dominates. And the specific character of the music of the club allows experimenting with movements.The program is rich and interesting. The classes are held in the form of a play. You will have an opportunity to participate in children’s competitions with your performance.

POPPING CLASSES

 For Children & Adults

To find the perfect time for your class see our timetable here 

Popping is a dance made up of the contraction of certain muscles to the beat of music combined with isolation, robot, boogaloo, glides, waving, snaking, tutting, strutting, miming, ticking, strobing and many more movements, concepts and styles. A mechanical illusion is created during the dance. Once a week, on Saturday at 6:30 pm . A class is 1 hour long. 

MODERN DANCE

 For Children & Adults 

To find the perfect time for your class see our timetable here 

Modern dance has a variety of forms and elements, and all of them are submitted to one common image of laconism, beauty and expression. The poses of this dance are not fixed as in classical ballet. The geometry of lines created by a dancer’s body is admirable! Diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines combine one with another, cross changing one another, which leaves an impression of an ideal body, an ideal dance. A dancer needs to keep his/her body straight, yet liberated, with the muscles of belly and bowels tense. Such a centralised body control allows performing precise turns while keeping balance. Modern dance develops a sense of rhythm and coordination of movements.

Adult Ballet: Good for the Mind, Body, and Soul

by Bethany Leger

Author Elizabeth Gilbert once said, “a creative life is an amplified life.” Ballet is an art form that definitely has the power to educate and enrich a person’s life. While painters explore the world of color, and musicians yield to melody, dancers express themselves through movement. Not just an activity for little girls anymore, ballet classes for adults are cropping up everywhere. Consider three significant ways ballet can affect your life as an adult student.

 1. Mind

Some adults prefer to practice crossword puzzles or watch educational programs to expand their minds. If this isn’t your cup of tea, participating in a ballet class may be just the right stimulation you’re looking for. Ballet is like beautiful math—students learn to formulate combinations, coordinate steps, and be quick on their toes (no pun intended). Ballet technique provides a unique challenge that requires students to pay close attention to instructions and develop problem-solving skills. Adult ballet can serve as a wonderful refresher course for former professionals or students returning from a hiatus. Even students who have little to no prior training are in for an exciting new venture all the same.

2. Body

Don’t let the pretty pink tights fool you—ballet isn’t easy. Ballet is a well-rounded, full-body workout that has many muscular and cardiovascular benefits. Using the barre for support and taking turns dancing across the floor, students learn to increase their flexibility, improve their balance and coordination, and develop greater core strength. Of course, adult ballet is designed with the mature body in mind; while students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and try new things, they are always welcome to modify steps, or skip certain movements altogether. If you tend to be self-conscious about your body or limitations, take heart. Adult ballet is a pressure-free zone that welcomes students of all shapes and abilities.

2. Soul

It has been said by many professionals and novices alike that the simple act of placing your hand on the barre can make you feel beautiful. Yes, ballet is a very graceful art form that leaves you with a sense of poise and accomplishment. After all, it was originally performed in the royal court! In an age of increasing technology and distractions, adult ballet class transports students to a time of refinement; as classical music fills the studio, students have the opportunity to connect with their emotions and reflect on what’s truly important. Not to mention, students have a chance to meet and work alongside others that share their passion for dance. Regular exposure to these artistic influences and positive social dynamics makes adult ballet class good for the soul.

 

Just as we need food and oxygen to live, we need the arts to nourish us as well. By taking the time to explore the creative aspects of life, such as by trying adult ballet, you will reap many mental, physical, and emotional benefits. So go ahead and take a leap (pun intended!) and sign up at MyArt Dance & Art School!
