Children's Dance Classes
At Studio Glow, we are all about inspiring young people to move and move well - and we definitely think that moving through dance is one of the most enjoyable ways to do it!
Current classes are building us into beginning with a bang in 2020 with our Dance NZ Made syllabus - we are currently the only Hamilton Dance Studio to be offering this style of Jazz Exams and we are super proud to be doing so!
Dance NZ Made has an awesome approach which encourages students to enjoy and become confident in their ability to perform, at the end of the day, thats the ultimate experience for a dancer is being on that stage and we love improving a child's technique and performance ability to be skilful at exactly that.

PERFORMERS GLOW BOX - Holiday Workshops
NEXT DATES TO BE CONFIRMED!
Performers Glow Box is our School Holiday Dance Program catering to children from 3-18 years
We love having young dancers come along to Studio Glow to learn with us.
We really pride ourselves on offering unique experience to young performers so that they can expand on their wonderful knowledge gained in th term through their regular classes.
We know how important open work is to enable a performers brain to expand, away from the structure of syllabus work but also love applying a strong focus to a dancers body and how awareness of strength and conditioning can improve them for the long term.
Our Performers Glow Box Workshop allows children of all ages to build on their joy of movement with us!
Classes On Offer
Prep For Pro: Industry Awareness & Choreography/Audition Technique:
These classes are designed to give those aged 15+ who are attending auditions or interested in transitioning into full-time dance training - then ultimately, the professional dance industry the knowledge and skill set to approach an audition strongly.
In a competitive industry such as the Performing Arts, it is so important to be educated on how to attack an audition confidently, take on new choreography and market and promote yourself to a panel, school or dance company - these 2 classes help you to do just that!
Dancers Strength & Conditioning:
The young dancer can gain so much from learning at a young age how to condition their body in order to avoid injury!
A strong body that can tolerate increased workload as they grow and improve intensity will withstand the challenges it faces which means less time off lessons and of course reduced pain and worry!
In this session we look at how you can best look after your body to ensure it supports you through exams, shows, rehearsals and competitions to keep you moving well and enjoying dance.
Beginners Guide To Core:
Giving an overview about what muscles make up the core and helping young dancers to make better use of these muscles for improved posture and strength. Perfect for all school aged children.
Hair & Make Up:
A huge asset to a dancers toolbox is a confident approach to hair and make-up.
Having the skill to do make up for the stage or a light look for auditions to enhance the face is a an essential skill in our world of Performing
Being able to easily carry out crafy hair doo's to ensure that you are always looking polished and professional for lessons, shows and auditions will have you a step above the rest!
