What are the main elements of dance?
Here we detail the five elements that all forms of dance and creative movement have in common: body, action, space, time and energy. Being able to identify and understand these core characteristics can help you when talking about a dance performance or can help you get your own messages across through movement.
What should I wear to my first dance?
Don’t wear loose fitting clothing. The instructors need to be able to see the dancers lines in order to properly place them in the correct level. I always suggest that first time students wear dance attire (leotard and tights) if they have them, or a comfortable t-shirt and leggings.

Why do we warm up before dancing?
Warming up before you dance also improves your performance. It helps to decrease any tension in your muscles and body by mobilising your joints which will help you to work on your flexibility. Completing a thorough warm up before you dance can also prepare you mentally for dancing.
