Dance

Norwest Seed Academy has a wide range of Dance classes to offer Infants through to Senior students.

Tiny Tots (Preschool)

Our tiny tot's classes consist of three different dance styles: ballet, jazz, and acrobatics. The class runs for 45 minutes for Preschool. We focus on the dance basics to help the student to better understand their bodies and rhythm. It sets them up with a good foundation of dance styles, so they will then be able to easily transfer into the styles of their choosing once they get older. Our Tiny Tots (Preschool) dance class is held in the morning in the Auditorium and is open to any students who are enrolled in the ELC or younger siblings of current Norwest Christian College students K-12. Enrolment in this class requires parents’ attendance for the duration of the dance lesson. Due to the age of the children, we believe that it is in their best interest to have their parents present. Parents will be required to wait either in the Auditorium Foyer or with the dance class. If your child attends ELC on the same day as dance classes, once the dance class has finished parents will need to walk their children up to the ELC and sign them in.

Tiny Tots (Kindergarten & Year 1)

Our tiny tot's classes consist of three different dance styles: ballet, jazz, and acrobatics. The class runs for 60 minutes for Kindergarten and Year 1. We focus on the dance basics to help the student to better understand their bodies and rhythm. It sets them up with a good foundation of dance styles, so they will then be able to easily transfer into the styles of their choosing once they get older. Tiny tots Kindergarten & Year 1 classes run during the week straight after school.

Ballet

The discipline of graceful movement and elegant lines. A foundational technique whereby skills are fully transferable to open opportunities to explore other styles.

Tap

Energetic, beat-driven dancing that makes music with your feet. Dancers will relax into movements and perform with individual flair.

Jazz

Strong technique-led, energetic style with a strong focus on performance. Jazz classes will be a comfortable mix of modern styles with Broadway choreography.

Jazz Funk

Jazz Funk is a hybrid of hip-hop and jazz dance. Classes are energetic, upbeat, dynamic, and technical. Students will be encouraged to find their own style and dance creatively whilst learning hip-hop movements and freestyle techniques in a way that is age appropriate and glorifies God. 

Stretching, Strengthening and Centring

Improve dance fitness and flexibility with soft music to direct breathing to fully engage the mind and body.
