DANCE CLASSES

In the intermediate/advanced dance department the students are trained in performance dance (technique and performance). The dance classes revolve around development of talent, body and technique training and performance training. Some examples of dance styles that are taught during the dance classes are Broadway musical and performance dance, character, classical dance, modern stage, jazz and tap. 

DRAMA CLASSES

In the drama department students are trained in acting. Acting skills are developed through improvisation, script-reading and historical drama (e.g. Shakespeare).  In these drama classes, creativity and performance play a big role. Since the students are trained according to the English model, the improvisation scenes (and the script-reading) are often done in English. 

SINGING CLASSES

In the vocal department the students are trained both individually and in choir (e.g. gospel and evergreen). For those students who are doing the entire course, we offer an additional masterclass vocal coaching (singing). In these classes the students get individual performance coaching and work on their solo singing pieces.
