We offer various dance classes, stretching classes and couple’s classes for children and adults.
Classes for children
We teach the SABOD (previously known as SADTA) Modern Dance Syllabus - Creative to Grade 12. Modern Dance can be defined as a form of contemporary, theatrical and concert dance employing a special technique for developing the use of the entire body in movements expressive of abstract ideas. This form of dance is strongly influenced by ballet, contemporary and jazz. SABOD's Modern Dance Syllabus includes all of these styles as well as other complementary styles to give our dancers the opportunity to cover a broad spectrum of dance styles.
We teach the SABOD (previously known as SADTA) Hip Hop Syllabus - Step Up to Level 12. Hip Hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip hop music or that have evolved as part of hip hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States. The SABOD Hip Hop syllabus includes a broad spectrum of styles: Old School Hip Hop, New Style Hip Hop, KRUMP, Breaking, Waacking, House, Jerking, Dance Hall as well as Funk styles such as Popping, Locking and Tutting.

In these 45 minute intensive stretching classes we focus on relaxing whilst improving our range of motion and flexibility. I move around during the class correcting your form and gently helping you to reach your personal best. The benefits of stretching are truly endless. Being flexible will help you to reach your full potential in any physical activity and is therefor a great class to take in combination with your your other activities. If you're not into sport, this is an excellent alternative to keep your muscles active and healthy. People of all ages (above 13), genders and personal abilities are welcome to join this class.Benefits of stretching
