Dance styles

Funky Tots

Our Funky Tots classes are a fun, creative and caring introduction to the world of dance. Our upbeat dance classes will have your kids getting groovy to all the coolest songs. We believe in learning through play so your little ones will love our imaginative approach whilst gaining confidence, co-ordination and social skills as well as developing their strength, fitness, memory and dance skills.

Hip hop

Hip hop is an urban and street style that originated from the United States and has grown to include a multitude of sub-genres including Breakdancing, Popping, Locking, Whacking, Tutting, Dancehall and House. At 100% DANCE we are passionate about teaching students the foundations of Hip hop as they work their way through the many grooves that make up the style. This equips them with the confidence to freestyle and dance socially with friends. All of our Hip-hop classes are designed to be appropriate and relatable and are a wonderful form of self-expression and enjoyment.

Commercial Jazz

Commercial Jazz is a modern expression of traditional jazz dancing with an emphasis on musicality, performance and technique, much like what you would see in a music video. Whilst dancing to the latest hits, students will learn to dance with precision and strength as they grow to understand the aesthetics of dance as well as its technical foundations. Students will master kicks, turns, jumps and cutting edge choreography as they hone their skills under expert supervision.

Lyrical

Lyrical Contemporary is an emotive and soulful dance style that allows students to express themselves with beautiful fluid movement. This style was made popular by television shows such as So You Think You Can Dance and at 100% DANCE we aim to give students a greater understanding of the music they are dancing to with a focus on musicality, expression and enjoyment. Contemporary dance draws its origins from Ballet therefore students can enjoy a modern approach to developing their technical foundations in dance.

JFH

Our JFH classes are the epitome of commercial dance. Standing for Jazz/Funk/Hip hop this class incorporates the grooves of hip hop, strong lines of jazz and upbeat style of funk. What’s not to love? Dance to music by Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Ciara, Usher, Justin Timberlake and more in this energetic and modern style.

Acro

Acro is the perfect class for any commercial dancer wanting to improve their tricks, flexibility and strength. Learn carthweels, handstands, baranis, walkovers, handsprings and more in a safe and highly controlled environment on the best quality equipment in one of our Acro classes.

Cheerleading

Learn teamwork, lifts, acrobatics and commercial dance choreography while you shake your pom poms in our fabulously fun cheerleading classes. Our cheerleading teachers are in the industry working as professional cheerleaders and choreographers for the NRL. Now that’s something to cheer about!

Strength and Technique

Our strength and technique classes are a platform for students to take their dancing to the next level with a focus on technical skills, flexibility and strength. Students will see a significant improvement in their jumps, turns, kicks, flexibility and body conditioning. This focused environment allows them to learn a greater range of technical exercises and students will feel challenged and excited as they broaden their dance vocabulary.
