Performance Classes

Performance classes are for students who wish to compete in eisteddfod groups. In each age group there is a performance class in which classical ballet, contemporary and jazz groups are rehearsed. In order to be eligible for these classes, students must attend one ballet syllabus class per week if involved in contemporary and jazz and two ballet classes per week if involved in classical groups. This is to ensure students are receiving the best technical training for competition.

Being a part of an eisteddfod group is a huge honour and means that your child has been handpicked for their ability and commitment. Parents and students should be extremely proud of this achievement and understand that they will be representing Dynamite Premiere Academy at various venues outside of the studio. The group will compete against some great dance schools at fantastic venues throughout the year. Generally we will compete in 3 eisteddfods per year; IRBD – Collaroy (April School Holidays), Northern Beaches – Glen St (May), and Ryde – Ryde High School. All parents or guardians are completely responsible for the transport to and from each eisteddfod. We will have specific times we need to meet at the venue. It is a huge commitment to be in the eisteddfods groups and one that runs for the entire year. Classes are not to be missed and if your child is sick we ask that students come to watch if they are NOT contagious. All students must attend the competitions and plenty of notice is given as to when the exact dates are. We will also participate at Solo night (Week 1 of Term 2 at Pittwater High School) End of Year Concert (November) and Newport Festival Day (approximately 27th November).

We hold compulsory Eisteddfod intensive training each January school holidays which every child must attend.
‘Non-performance’ jazz, & modern/contemporary classes will not compete in eisteddfods but will have performance opportunities in our end of year concert.
