ANNE-ELIZABETH THEATRE ARTS
An IDTA theatre Dance school based in Aylestone with over 30 years of experience in teaching all aspects of performing arts, offering weekly classes for aspiring young dancers.
ANNE-ELIZABETH THEATRE ARTS
Our aim is to create a productive learning environment where teaching and choreography is anatomically safe and physical corrections are attempted in a careful and sensitive manner. All members of the teaching staff strive to communicate a love of dance and encourage an appreciation of the charateristic style of each theatre subject taught. It is maintained that participation in the art of dance helps to promote confidence, positive attitudes, team work, physical strength, memory skills, patience and right-left brain coordination and an overall enjoyment that assists the lifelong development of each student.
CLASSES WE OFFER
Bounce to the Beat
This classical style of expressive movement has something to offer for everyone. Although the origins of Ballet date back to seventeenth century France, the age old traditional and conventional steps provide us with grace and fluidity of movement that is still relevant in today's syllabus. We believe that Ballet technique and the artistry found within it, is the foundation of all dance styles.
A fun syllabus that is a fusion of music, singing, dance and acting that is inspirational in building team work and interaction within the class structure.
Bounce to the Beat
Bounce to the beat are fun and exciting sessions that explore the world of dance, music and movement. A great way to interact with your child as they develop their creative and physical skills whilst having lots of fun!!! Click here for more info.
Lets get tapping!
Tap is rhythm and rhythm is tap! Many countries lay claim to its origins- from America and its jazz age to Britain and northern clog dancing. But whichever one you choose to believe, evergreen shows like 42nd Street and more recently Tap Dogs highlight the great diversity of style and music that tap has to offer.
This is a dance form especially designed for theatrical performance. It enhances the dancer physically through exercise and stimulates artistic ability through movement, improvisation and the interpretation of music.
Good toes, naughty toes are back!!
This dance form involves runs, spins, kicks and leaps as well as a combination of more diverse steps and movement from other Freestyle dance genre i.e street dance. The use of popular music allows dancers to use freedom of expression to enhance their chosen style
The structure of this syllabus contains all the essential attributes needed for the development of an all round dancer i.e agility, flexibility, stamina and strength. Lift work also builds team work and teaches respect and responsibility for other members of the class.
Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before participants know it, they’re getting fit and their energy levels are soaring! There’s no other fitness class like a Zumba Fitness-Party. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.
PERFORMANCES & EXAMINATIONS
Our annual showcase takes place at Counterthorpe College. Both the rehearsals & performances involve lots of support from parents & hard work from pupils. But, year after year, the show proves to be the entertaining highlight of the year. Alongside our annual show, pupils of the School are given the chance to be involved in a wide range of extra-curricular events. These range from appearing in pantomime, to charity events such as the Loros fashion show and the Children in need Tapathon. Experience gained from these activities is invaluable to pupils as well as raising money for some very worthwhile causes.
Pupils of The Anne-Elizabeth Theatre Arts are entered into the International Dance Teachers Association (I.D.T.A) examinations.
The IDTA is an awarding organisation recognised by Ofqual to offer qualifications in the Qualifications and Credit Framework.
The Association's grade and vocational graded examinations have been accepted as regulated qualifications.
Running alongside the I.D.T.A exams, we have our own school annual end of term medal/trophy session, performed to an audience of family and friends. This less formal session is used to encourage the pupils to perform their class and syllabus work more confidently.
