Want to be foot loose and let off some steam? You are never too young or old to Tap Dance! Tap Dancing is fun, great for fitness, entertainment and generally feeling good about yourself.
If it is your dream to become a ballet dancer and at Calvella we start our training from the age of 2. We offer classes to all age groups and offer pointe work classes as well.
Fancy something a bit more energetic, hip and trendy? Want to get dance to the latest chart music as well as a good work out? Then our street jazz dance classes are probably more your thing! Come along and learn some moves!
Always singing songs from your favourite musical and trying to copy the dance steps? Musical theatre class is a good combination of dance, drama and singing from all the musicals old and new!
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. The warm up also includes good body toning exercises.
Line dancing is a formation dance that has origins reaching back into traditional folk dancing. It is performed to country and modern music, dancing in unison to classic and chart topping tunes whilst keeping fit and active.
Dancercise is a form of exercise that blends aerobics/keep fit and dance moves. Many people find dancercise to be more fun than traditional exercise, because it is done to music, and participants learn actual dance moves and routines.
Do you have a birthday coming up? Why not hire Calvella? Included is a teacher who will choreograph a routine to the Party Girl’s choice of music. The children will perform their dance to all parents at the end. Our Parties are great fun!
