1. Threeesteps 

Dance studio Threeesteps seeks to embrace the liberating spirit of hip-hop, to both empower and inspire its student learners. With its curriculum focusing on rhythm and body movement, their classes are designed to allow students to fully shed their inhibitions in favour of self-expression and self-acceptance. They’ll get opportunities to participate in video productions and performances, as well as create their own dance routines during freestyle “battles”! It is tremendously fun and a great diversion from the rigour of academics.

2. The Ballet Academy 

This ballet school offers a wide range of programmes for both children and adults. The studio provides RAD classical ballet syllabus and vocational grades for all ages and abilities including teens, adults, and even senior dancers (ages 55+). This venerable academy is not just any dance studio but one accredited under the Royal Academy of Dance, an international dance institution based in London with memberships spanning across 85 countries.

Its refined curriculum will allow students to delve deeper into the nuances of ballet, entailing an understanding of its many disciplines as well as a cultivated finesse in performing techniques. While its beginner classes focus on making learning ballet fun, pupils looking to advance beyond the fundamentals are required to commit to a comprehensive curriculum which will prepare them for Vocational Graded Examinations.
