Dance Classes at Garrowhill School of Dance
SESSION INFO BEING UPDATED.
Please click here to email me if you need info regarding this year's classes.
We welcome pupils from all parts of Glasgow and Lanarkshire. Our classes are easily accessible for example from Barlanark, Shettleston, Parkhead, Garthamlock, Bargeddie, Coatbridge, Airdrie, Moodiesburn, Glenboig and Chryston.
The beginners class is specifically designed for children from 2 - 4years old. It is made up of various exercises and dance movements which allow the children to warm up, stretch all their major muscles, improve their rhythm, co-ordination and balance and learn some basic dance moves while having fun through music, mime and movement. It uses stories, nursery rhymes and lots of imagination.
The preschool class is a progression of the beginners class and aimed at children in their pre-school year. It uses many elements of the beginners class but also begins to incorporate a more structured programme using basic Ballet and Tap technique. Preschool held in Garrowhill Masonic Hall.
The most important discipline for someone who wants to dance. Ballet forms the basis for all other dance styles as it helps develop strength, posture, grace, co-ordination, technique and musical awareness. We offer ballet for children from age 4œ.
Modern & Tap
Tap dancing is a rhythmical stimulating style of dance which is a fun way of developing co-ordination and skill. Tap originates from Irish dance and the English clog dance. Classes are available for children from ages 4œ to Adults. (For younger children see Beginner Ballet and Pre-school Ballet, above.) From beginners to advanced. It's a great way to keep fit and have fun.
We encourage our dancers to take part in competition and will soon be publishing details of the competitions available as well as those competed in and the results of those who took part.
Xplosion Cheerleader classes are extremely popular.
Street Stars (Street Dance for 4-6yrs)
In the past some of our dancers were chosen to perform in the Motherwell Civic Theatre pantomime, "The Wizard of Oz". Watch for details of any similar situation this year.
