All our dancers, at every level, are challenged at an individual rate so that they are able to make the most out of every session and reach their own full potential.
At ZC Dance we have 4 ages levels to ensure that all of our dancers are training at the appropriate level for their physical and mental development. The age levels are as follows:
Our Minis level covers all our budding dancers aged 3+!
Minis sessions at ZC Dance are designed to introduce young children to the joy of dance, whilst building their confidence, co-ordination and social skills so that they are fully prepared to progress to the junior class level. Each session runs for 30 minutes so that our dancers have time to develop their imagination and skill without over working their bodies and minds.
Our Junior level covers dancers age 6+
Junior sessions at ZC Dance are designed to help children build a strong foundation of dance technique, stamina and movement memory so that they are fully prepared to progress into intermediate level classes. Classes for this level are 45mins - to an hour and it is at this level that dancers have the option to start working towards exams.
Our intermediate level covers dancers age 8+
Intermediate sessions at ZC Dance are designed to improve technique, increase musicality and provide self confidence so that they are fully prepared to progress into intermediate level classes.Classes for this level are 45mins - to an hour and profession examinations in Contemporary are introduced at this level.
Our Senior level covers dancers age 11+
Classes at level are at least an hour so that our dancers have time to work on a number of skills including mastering performance, building precision and finding their artistic voice. Our senior classes provide dancers with the skill and awareness they need to audition to enter the professional dance world by positively leading students through a higher level of training. As senior students move through the higher grades their abilities are challenged further and new skills, such as pointe work in Ballet, are introduced.
After, or often alongside, these graded exams students are invited to partake in addition professional examinations.
