Langley Dance Academy…
where every child’s gifts are nurtured.
Ballet students learn curriculum set by the Royal Academy of Dance. The Curriculum is designed for each age level. Each level of graded ballet is progressive and builds on the skills acquired in the previous level, but dancers may join at any grade until Grade 3 Ballet. The dance vocabulary is taught carefully through certified teachers. Each child’s age and physical capabilities dictate the level at which they dance. Students who participate in graded ballet lessons may also be invited to take examinations through the Royal Academy of Dance.
Jazz follows a specific vocabulary. It is similar to Ballet in the regard that students progress through levels increasing difficulty and complexity with age and ability. Students learn skills such as turns, kicks, balances, jumps and traveling sequences. The skills learned in Jazz incorporate many levels of space, movement patterns and formations. Jazz vocabulary is performed to popular music.
Both level 1 and 2 Tap offer an introduction to basic tap dancing technique. The curriculum is based on the skills set forth by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). This syllabus is designed for each age and ability of the student with a focus on fun and movement. Students who participate in tap lessons may be invited to take examinations through the ISTD.

Hip Hop is the dance form you see in most music videos; it incorporates floor work, upper body strength, and is great aerobic exercise. There is a focus on movement and performance in the preschool levels.
