At MK Dance we specialise in Ballet and Tap, offering the opportunity to all students to take examinations with the Royal Academy of Dance and the Imperial Society of Teachers for Dancing. As well as offering Ballet and Tap classes we also have qualified DDMIX trainers, offer toddler classes, and have recently introduced Musical Theatre..
MK Dance follows the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus which prepares pupils for classical ballet examinations from Pre-Primary through to Advanced II. Children begin to take part in the Royal Academy of Dance Examinations when they go into Primary. The Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and examinations are internationally recognized and accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA).
All pupils are encouraged to set goals for themselves through either examinations or class presentations. Whilst we offer the opportunity for pupils to take exams these are not compulsory. We believe that pupils should be encouraged to develop confidence, discipline, creativity and independence which will help whether they decide to pursue a career in dance or take another route in their lives.
Tap classes at MK Dance are designed for beginners and experienced dancers to experience and explore the links of rhythm and improvisation that tap provides. Once they have a good grasp of the basics, pupils are encouraged to build upon them and progress through the grades.
At MK Dance we follow the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing syllabus which prepares children for examinations from Primary to Advanced 2. Tap classes start at 4 years in a combined ballet and tap class, from age 5 onwards children are taught tap in classes which fully focus on the discipline.
