These are great fitness classes which incorporate long flowing movements with some hip-hop steps put in too. Children dance to both world and popular music.
Rhythm and the beat are important fundamentals to dancing and children explore these fundamentals through bodily movement and foot work.

Song Writing
Students will be involved in the art of song writing with an experienced song writer. Themes or stories will be explored and lyrics penned. The song will be performed at the show at the end of each weekly camp. Once the song / musical piece is ready to be recorded children will produce the music on to CD.

Instruments
Children are introduced and exposed to a huge range of instruments. Visiting Instrumentalists come and visit the School of Music during the summer project and demonstrate, discuss and perform their instruments for the children. Instruments may include harp, trumpet, saxaphone, flute, percussion, keyboard, violin, cello. Many children already take piano, voice, violin classes etc and they are given tuition with a view to performing at the variety show at the end of the project. All children will receive hands on experience and tuition in piano, violin, recorder and keyboard.

Music Theatre/Drama
Music-Theatre is a mixture of song and drama. Children explore and concentrate on the songs, plot, story, characters and dramatisation of a musical. Each week the students will focus on and perform highlights of a popular musical. The children will be coached in how to deliver a song impressively, acting, self expression, space, voice projection and general stage presence. Importance is given to presentation and dramatic awareness involving the children in choice and use of costumes and props.
