Speech

The priority of Speech Class is the development of the voice. This involves each student working on relaxation, breathing, resonance and articulation in a relaxed atmosphere.  The benefit of the Speech Class is that each student will work towards acquiring a clear, interesting voice and good communication skills.   Students have the opportunity to sit exams by attending the additional Speech Exam class.

Drama

At DADA we believe the emphasis is twofold: Students will work on theatre games, improvisation, scripts, mime, movement etc. but will also gain confidence, improve their social skills and work on inner development.Each student who attends a drama class should learn to have an appreciation of drama, acting and theatre in a relaxed and friendly environment where the needs of the individual student are catered for.  

Ballet

DADA ballet classes are designed to introduce children to the basics of dancing, movement, co-ordination, rhythm and timing. But most of all, these classes aim to teach children to appreciate dance and all the fun that goes with it!  We introduce correct ballet terms from 'demi-plie' & 'sautes' to positions of the arms etc. and we focus on introducing a beautiful ballet posture to our ballerinas.  Students also have the option of taking grade examinations.

Musical Theatre

The Musical Theatre class is designed for students who like to combine all the elements of dance, singing and drama in one class! Students will focus on songs from musicals as a starting point. Class will include vocal warm ups and exercises, and the choreographed rehearsal and production of pieces from various Musicals. This class is sometimes referred to as a combination of Drama and Singing Class, but it is much more than that!
