TAP

BBO Dance

Tap dance is a form of dance characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion and teaches the student all about rhythm. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal "tap" on the heel and toe.

Fast and loud, fun and energetic!

 

Big Musical Theatre productions like Mary Poppins, 42nd Street and Anything Goes still have tap at the heart of their choreography. Performers like The Syncladies have given tap a modern touch and make it look fresh!

 

It is a technically complex discipline, focusing on rhythm and beats created by the steps and which has whole language of its own,  But most of all it sounds amazing !!

From out Junior age group, classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Acro Jazz

BBO Acro Dance and Acrobatic Arts

Our Acro Dance classes promote co-ordination and stamina and contain exercises to strengthen, extend and loosen the body and increase flexibility.   Acro Dance is an art form specifically designed for dancers. Acro has softer, more lyrical-looking lines than floor gymnastics, with emphasis on lengthening “through” the tricks and holding beautiful balances with interesting variations.

 

The focus is on seamlessly blending acrobatics with dance, and avoiding obvious preparations before each trick. With the added element of Acro, students can learn acrobatics to add into their dance routines, starting with simple stretches and balances working towards more advance moves and tumbling as they progress. 


At the academy classes start from Pre-School age and continue through until adult. We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, are fully certified in teaching Acro dance and we are an official AcroPad centre so we can always offer the best to our students.

For all age groups, Mondays and Saturdays

In small groups, of a maximum of 4 students per class, we create a learning space designed to play to each student's strengths, teaching real musicals skills that build an individual’s ability to express their own musical identity.

We provide singing for musical theatre training and music theory training, that becomes the basis for each student to develop their own style.  Once these basics are mastered, a whole range of musical styles can be explored.
