Contemporary

Dance Creations also offers Contemporary classes, where your child will enjoy exploring the natural movement patterns of the body and its relation to breath, musicality and space.

 

Their coordination will be challenged whilst they’ll also be creating fun phrases or tasks that will incorporate changes of direction, floor patterns or moving their arms and legs in different ways, at the same time.

 

The Laban movement principles, various release-based principles, creative dance techniques as well as Limón dance principles are often present within these classes.

My kids love attending Miss Terrie's ballet classes, my youngest so much so, that he now attends twice a week. Miss Terrie has such a wonderful rapport with her students. She is patient, kind and very caring! I highly recommend Dance Creations. - Lisa

"My two daughters have been dancing with Miss Terrie at Dance Creations for almost three (3) years. The joy it brings me to watch them is surpassed only by the joy they experience learning, imagining, pretending and dancing throughout their lessons. They have developed confidence and poise, at Miss Terrie’s nurturing hands and continue to master various physical and mental skills (such as listening). The variety and creativity weaved into the annual dance programs, ensure that we always look forward to our lessons and concerts. I hope that my son wants to dance with Miss Terrie when he’s old enough". Kate Oxford & Bruce Sherman

"Sofia is in her third year of dancing with Dance Creations and absolutely loves it. The teachers are so kind, nurturing and supportive.  I have watched a very shy, unsure little girl blossom into a happy, exuberant kid who can not wait for her dance class each week. She participated in her first concert last year, and the magical experience has left her very excited for the concert at the end of this year. Younger sister Adele has now started dancing with Miss Terrie, and can not choose a favourite between being a lady bird, sea horse, mermaid or giraffe. Dance Creations focus on so much more than just the dance, and the girls love their class each week, love their teachers and are enriched by the whole experience".

TEACH:  Cassical Ballet

There have been a few key points in my teaching journey that have completely changed my life and my approach to teaching, and the following is one of those moments.

 

I had spent many years gaining the experience, knowledge and qualifications to teach, and then a 3 year old so quickly let’s me know that kindness, and a nurturing environment are essential … such a big ‘aha’ moment for me that shaped my unique way of teaching.
