OUR CLASSES

DANCE FOUNDATION CONTENT


Our course runs in two formats. If you’re in a hurry, you can complete a more intensive crash course over five consecutive full days. Alternatively, you can spread the dance classes out over five weekends, allowing more time for recovery and individual practice in between sessions.

Each full day of classes builds a variety of skills, with workshops in:

  • Ballet
  • Choreography and Repertoire
  • Commercial and Jazz
  • Contact Improvisation
  • Contemporary
  • Strength and Flexibility

Our course finishes with a fun and supportive studio showcase on the final afternoon.

DANCE FOUNDATION tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
