TEACHING METHODOLOGY & PHILOSOPHY
We appreciate that there are multiple ways and methods of learning. Because of this, we have studied the art and science of teaching, formulating various concepts and theories. Our constant drive to develop and refine these methods ensures that we are able to accommodate any student, no matter their experience or skill level.

A strong emphasis is placed on music, rhythm and timing, including understanding the core instruments that create that genre. We can certainly help students who are new to music theory find a beat and maintain their rhythm, whilst teaching more advanced dancers to follow exact melodies and interpret specific instruments.

Our students are exposed to in-depth and intricate techniques to constantly refine their dancing. We also believe a broader understanding of each dance is necessary, as it allows the dancer to better express the artistic nature of each style. This will often include learning the history, cultural influences, emotions and sentiments of the dance.
