Disco Freestyle is an artistic dance style that includes leaps, spins, kicks, runs and jumps. What makes disco freestyle different from other forms of dance is that it is constantly developing and breaking the boundaries of dance.
Freestyle includes solo work, pairs and group routines. It is a great way to improve agility, flexibility and stamina, all whilst learning to dance.
This style of dance is the perfect way for a child to learn how to express themselves through dance, improving their confidence, as well as becoming part of a social group and making friends. All classes are based on having fun whilst being active but learning from a syllabus.
Freestyle dance can be more than just a hobby class and there is the opportunity to become part of the Supreme Competition Team, travelling around the country competing against other dance schools resulting in the progression from beginner grades to championship level, winning titles and trophies.
Lyrical slow is a contemporary based dance style. It allows the dancer to express themselves through different types and speeds of music, teaching them the importance of timing and control. It is a great way to improve the dancer's technique and body core. The style includes contact work, solo and pairs routines. Contemporary is an excellent alternative style of dancing which is incorporated as part of lyrical slow. This is often included as an extra event at a freestyle dance competition if your child choses to become part of the Supreme Competition Team.
Commercial dancers are commonly known as those dancing behind an artist in music videos, fashion and on television. It is about being an artist behind an artist. There are lots of different styles of street dance which can be incorporated in a variety of routines. This class will include a combined style of street and commercial, allowing the dancer to use different parts of the body at the same time and learning to isolate the body, with particular emphasis on the middle body to give a strong pump effect. Commercial street's main focus is on rhythm and co-ordination.

As well as the main classes we also offer additional tuition for students who are excelling.
Supreme Team is the competition team for Powerhouse Dance Academy. Twice a year at Powerhouse we will do a 6 week Supreme pre-training to learn solo and pairs routines along with a slow routine. Once the dancer has successfully completed their training they will be eligible to become part of the competitive team enabling them to compete at dance competitions held up and down the country. If a dancer works hard and shows exceptional talent they can be fast tracked into the Supreme Team.
Private tuition is a one on one private lesson with the dancer where I can focus solely on their technique, confidence and style of dance. These lessons provide the dancer with solo, slow and pairs routines. Private tuition is available for the dancer's benefit to ensure that I can maximise their true potential.
