Class time is for students only. Viewing opportunities are end of term 2, Christmas concert & upon invite by the teacher.

Classical Ballet Royal Academy of Dance
Classical Ballet is a great foundation for all forms of dance. Ballet students are very adaptable to other styles of dance. We follow the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus as it is one of the only syllabi that is internationally recognized. R.A.D caters for both Girls and Boys. These classes can also be taken to improve general technique for other styles of dance. It is highly recommended that all ballet students participate in at least two ballet classes per week to fully gain the understanding & development of this discipline

Royal Academy of Dance Exams
Students who take exams improve dramatically and feel great. Confidence is always increased when students begin to see their own merits and that their hard work has paid off. Exams are optional and two classes of R.A.D ballet are required for this process. Exams are held annually towards the end of July. To date, our students have had a 100%pass rate in R.A.D examinations.

Jazz/Funk/HipHop (JFH) Is a fusion of the standard dances styles of Jazz, Funk & Hip Hop. Giving students the best of all three energetic styles in the one class, the combination of grounding jazz technique with adaptability to the branching styles of funk & hip hop gives students the creative edge. These classes are sharp, dynamic, funky and fun!

Contemporary
Contemporary dance is an amalgam of systems; it defines forms as dance theatre, physical theatre, contact improvisation, video & modern dance. Our contemporary is a mixture of world famous techniques including Cunningham and Graham, infused with our own innovative flare. These classes are very creative, expressive & dynamic.

Musical Theatre
Musical theatre is a class for those who wish to further develop their performance and theatre skills. The class develops acting skills, singing skills, voice projection, script reading, blocking and theatre sports. Students in this class will participate in local eisteddfods as well as the end of year concert with the rest of the school.

Tiny Tots - Pre-School Class
The pre-school class combines ballet and jazz and runs for 30 mins for the 3/4 yrs and 45mins for the 5yrs. Our program is full of imagination and creativity. We specialise in developing gross motor skills, an appreciation of rhythm and timing, musical awareness, movement & grace. This class is lots of fun and a great foundation for little people. * Class time is for the students only

Representatives
Our Performance representatives compete at local and regional eisteddfods as well as charity events. To become a part of this team, you must be dedicated to dance and participate in at least 2 x ballet classes plus either 1 x JFH or 1 x contemporary class per week. The rep class is the 4th class. Our Reps have won numerous awards and are now nationally recognised as exemplary performers. Auditions for Dance Dynamics representatives are held annually Usually December/January

Private Coaching
Private coaching offers students the opportunity to further improve their dance technique & to master solo routines. These one-on-one classes give students the chance to have their dancing personally assessed & to focus on specific areas of their dance. Students are welcome to book private coaching sessions with a teacher of their choice. For bookings, please phone our office.

*Class time is for the students only and viewing by parents, family and friends is not permitted. Family have the opportunity to watch class at the end of term two and view students’ progress at the end of year concert.

Dance Dynamics teachers are of the highest quality and not only does the school teach dance and theatre, they also develop teachers such as myself- This has been the most growing and fulfilling experience!"

"My daughters attended Dance Dynamics Byron Bay for 10 years, both flourished in terms of their dance as well as within themselves. Their teachers were amazing, generous women and under their guidance and within the communities of their classes, our girls have blossomed. We thank all of the teachers for their generosity and grace and especially Kate for her vision."

"I am delighted with the wonderful support and excellent teaching offered by Dance Dynamics. Not only are the teachers brilliant - they are also very nurturing of their students.
I am also most impressed with the great mental and emotional preparation that is given to the students for performances. The girls are all very supportive of each other and always come home with huge smiles and great enthusiasm for their dance."

"Dear Kate,
Thank you for providing such a wonderful dance school in Byron Bay. Dance Dynamics has brought out the best in our daughter, not only in the dance arena, but in other areas including her school work as she has become more disciplined. She looks forward to dance classes every day, and always leaves on a high, which is a credit to you and the teachers. Thank you Dance Dynamics,"
