Blenheim Ambition Dance Academy

Posted on: 20/11/2022

It's been another successful week for Dance extracurricular clubs with many attending Academy classes and competition team rehearsals.

Students at KS3 Contemporary/Lyrical club worked on fluidity within their routine, with all learning how to be emotive through dance movement. In KS3 Acro, students have continued working on their strength and flexibility and the new addition of the AirRoll equipment to support backwards walkovers has been enjoyed by all.

KS4/5 students worked excellently during their contemporary/lyrical class and all danced the final sequence beautifully. This class consists of a warm up, corner work and skills practice before learning a routine. The KS4/5 Acro class focused on students using the AirTrack equipment to improve skills in jumping, forward rolls and front walkovers, with lots of improvements being made.

KS3 Hip Hop was full of energy as always and allows for students to work in complex rhythms to pop music. Students worked tirelessly to perfect a routine which increases in speed as it's performed.

Students also received their Academy t-shirts this week and this is now their kit for the classes. All three dance competition teams have demonstrated an amazing amount of teamwork to incorporate lifts into their pieces and all are close to finishing their routines ahead of our first competition in January. Another brilliant week!

"These classes really help with my confidence and flexibility, meaning I can better my dance skills and performance ability for A Level dance." - Ellie, Year 12.
