Ballet, Pointe preparation & Pointe
PIPS provide ballet lessons from Baby Ballet to Pointe. The pointe technique is part of classical ballet involving a technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all their body weight on the tips of fully extended feet when wearing pointe shoes.
Street dance is an umbrella term for a large number of social dance styles such as: breakdancing, popping, locking, house dance, waacking, voguing etc. PIPS teach street from the very basics to working with their own Commercial Street Squad - PIPS With Attitude (PWA).
PIPS offers class from beginner to senior level in contemporary dance. This style combines the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance.
Mini Pips - Introduction to Dance & Baby Ballet
Our very young dancers can take part in the Mini Pips and/or Baby Ballet sessions. These are an introduction to dance for those aged 3-5 years.
The combo classes teach a mix of Jazz, Tap and Ballet. These are taught to the younger students before they are then split into classes dedicated to one of the dance styles. This gives the students a taster of each style before they choose 1 or all 3!
Acro / Gymnastics
PIPS offer acro classes that mix gymnastics with dance. Our younger dancers can join the classes from 5yrs and then progress through to the senior level.
Musical Theatre & Production
Our musical theatre and production group use dance and acting skills to produce some fantastic performances. The older production groups enter showcases and festivals each year.
PIPS students from the age of 5yrs can start their tap learning journey. It's incorporated into combination classes for the younger ones and then into individual sessions for the older students.
Jazz is a performance dance and style that is used in movies and many theatre and Broadway productions. It creates a conversation between the musicians, the instruments and the dancers. Iconic moves like the Charleston and Cakewalk were born through Jazz. We offer sessions for 10 years and older and also have the Modern Jazz Squad who perform in competitions and festivals.
