Performance Stream (Troupe)

The extremely popular troupe classes are available from the age of 5 years and ideal for kids who love performing.

Team members learn well-choreographed dances and perform in eisteddfods, festivals and shows throughout the year. Strong friendships are created as the students work closely together in a team.

Troupe stream classes include jazz, hip hop, ballet, tap, lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre, stretch and strength and private lessons. Students who are in the troupe stream are also given the opportunity to do exams in the RAD Ballet and the Glenn Wood Tap Syllabus.

Students are exposed to some of best choreographers in Australia and use their experience gained at All Starz as a steppingstone into the industry of performing arts.

Jazz

A specialised Boys Hip Hop class is also offered suitable for all levels. It too focuses on lots of fun, confidence-building and expression! It’s all about the groove and the moves!

Tap

This is the most rhythmic of the dance forms, is an excellent way to increase coordination of the mind and body and to develop a sense of rhythm, timing and expression. At All Starz, students are taught the Glen Wood Tap syllabus. This dynamic syllabus is structured, modern and a whole lot of fun to learn.

Contemporary dance is one of our popular dance styles and is a particularly innovative way of moving the body. This form of dance has a very broad and creative vocabulary, and contains movements that are both static and dynamic, lyrical and athletic, that invert, twist, expand and contract. The boundaries of contemporary dance are limitless!

Musical Theatre

Singing Lessons

Singing private lessons are one-on-one tuition and are considered the best way to accelerate your learning. Your teacher will be able to concentrate on your individual singing and you’ll be taught at whatever pace suits you best. These lessons can be used to achieve a higher level of technique, develop understanding of a song, and improve the styling and feeling in your singing.

Lyrical dance is expressive. Ranging in movements that can be lyrical and soft, to abstract and angular, lyrical dance can also be described as slow and expressive jazz movements with an emphasis on technique adagio/floor/centre.
