Wide range of dance forms taught
Cheerleading requires strength, flexibility and musicality and combines a variety of dance styles; including street, jazz and hip hop; with traditional cheer moves and lifts to create exciting and breathtaking routines. The group are coached to work as a team and are actively encouraged to create their own cheers and to come up with new and original lifts. There are no examinations or set syllabus for the cheerleading classes and lessons are just for fun and a great way to exercise.

Singing and drama aims
The aim of this class is to develop each child’s confidence in themselves and their ability, and to encourage both stage awareness and a sense of presence while performing. Students will learn the importance of vocal and physical warm ups, as well as how best to utilise the tools they have been given. Emphasis is placed on team work as it is important for children’s to be able to perform equally well in group numbers and solo pieces.
Each term pupils will learn musical theatre numbers as a group, with each child given an equal opportunity to sing, either as a solo or within a small group. These mini productions will combine pupils singing, dance and acting abilities to create an all-round entertaining performance. Previous numbers have been performed at various shows and functions around North Wales, allowing the children to experience firsthand the reaction of the audience and the thrill of performing
