​Danceworks

PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOPS

Regularly at Danceworks we have professional performers come into our academy and teach a workshop to all of our pupils (occasionally 3-6yrs depending on theme of workshop).We have previously had performers from X factor, Take That backing dancers,Little Mix backing dancers and more. These are amazing and children thrive from the experience - especially the Q&A time with the performers.


SHOWS AND PERFORMANCES

Each year at Danceworks we hold an annual show to showcase the children's amazing talents. In our annual show all dancers perform up to 2 routines that they have been working on in class! In addition to this we also have shows at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre, performances at Chance 2 Dance and at the performance stage at the Hammerwich Bonfire.



EXAMS WITH ABD

Every year at Danceworks we have exams with ABD. The children get to work within their set class for these exams enabling every child to have complete understanding of grade work in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Association Board Of Dance is a leading examination board that offers regulated examinations in dance core subjects which are accredited by GQAL & OFQUAL and offers accredited technical examinations and medal tests in all forms of dance.



ACRO

Our fully trained and insured Acrobatic Arts coaches concentrate on seamlessly blending acrobatics and choreography in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. Pupils will take part in exams from Level 1- Pre Pro 3 obtaining all required skills throughout.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES

We encourage students during our classes to become leaders and use the skills they learn to assist other members and possibly assist within classes. This prepares them for if they want to become a permanent assistant or continue their training to teach for Danceworks.





TROPHYS & MEDALS We believe it is important for children to be regularly recognised for their achievements no matter how big or small. This is why at Danceworks we have weekly trophies or class bears that get sent home for the week to an individual. Every year we hold a presentation evening for each class and children are awarded medals and trophies to keep. This is a highlight of our year and all children and their families look forward to it. Recognition is important because it keeps the children focused and determined all year round. All children know that one year maybe their year for our SPIRIT TROPHY which is our biggest trophy of all. We also recognise Best Newcomer, Most Improved, Best Performer and most determined.

GOAL SETTING

At Danceworks we work individually with children on their skills and techniques in class and use goals and techniques cards to track their progress. This enables us to see how far they come in classes and also as no child is the same, they all know their skill goals.


Stageworks

TV & FILM

All pupils take part in our TV & Film terms. In these terms children will create, direct and film their own mini movies, presenting clips or music videos with a professional film company.

PROFESSIONAL WEST END WORKSHOPS

Regularly at Stageworks we have professional performers from the West End come into our academy and teach a workshop to all of our main school pupils (occasionally minis school depending on theme of workshop).We have previously had performers from The Lion King, Seusical The Musical, Legally Blonde, Dirty Dancing and In the Heights. These are amazing and children thrive from the experience - especially the Q&A time with the performers.

SHOWS AND PERFORMANCES

UCAS points rewarded

Each year at Stageworks we hold an annual show and also a showcase of the pupils exam work. In our annual show all main school children will get the opportunity to audition for the roles available in the performance, this is to encourage them to audition in a safe and fun environment to build their confidence and stage presence. Alternatively in our exam shows each group from our minis (yellow & red) & main school (Juniors, Inters & Seniors) will perform their different shows. We choose to perform the pupils exam material to give them another experience of performing with an audience and also to give them the confidence for their exams


EXAMS WITH PERFORMANCE ARTS AWARDS

Every year at Stageworks we have exams with Performing Arts Awards. The children get to work with their set classes for these performances enabling every child to have a lead role. Our previous exam results we have always received 100% pass rate from all children including mini school. The Awards at higher levels help children to build UCAS points they can use towards university applications.

This has been fantastic and gives all children something tangible to work towards and enjoy the experience of being celebrated throughout the year.
