These classes are available to students from four years and above, for both MLC students and external.
 
All dance styles are taught by highly skilled dance instructors. All students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their dance knowledge and performance skills through a mid-year dance recital and at the end of year concert.
 
Our program includes an annual assessment during Term 3. This assessment is designed to make sure that our students have a full understanding of foundation and technique in each dance style. We also run an internal dance competition “MLC Dance Stars Challenge” for MLC Dance Students only. This is a great opportunity for students to develop their self-esteem and confidence in performing and competing.

Dance Styles Offered:

 
Acro Dance
Acro Dance is a beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of Acrobatics. Acro Dance presents all of the skills on the hard floor with seamlessly integrating musicality, emotional expression, extension, control and line.
 
Ballet
Classical ballet builds a disciplined technical foundation of dance skills. It is graceful, flowing and precise and nurtures individual artistic expression.
 

Contemporary
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance styles. Contemporary dance encourages natural, spontaneous movement.

This dance style is often done in bare feet.

Hip Hop
Hip Hop dance can be performed to many styles of music. This popular dance style combines elements of various street dance styles, set into a choreographed routine. You will learn arm, leg, head and body movements combined with upper body isolations, rolls and some floor dance.

Jazz
Jazz dancing showcases a dancer's individual style and skill. It is energetic and fun using popular music to execute fast paced moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns.

Tap
Tap is a dance style characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor. It is an exciting form of dance that uses your feet to create percussive beats, rhythmic patterns and timely beats. The sound is made by shoes that have metal “tap” on the heel and toe.
