Ballet is a strictly disciplined form of dance that originated in Renaissance Italy. It became a highly stylised form in France and Russia and today is practised all over the world. Characterised by their many years of training, ballet’s top dancers are amongst the strongest and fittest performance artists in the world. Blending creativity with extraordinary physicality and adding some of the world’s most beautiful music has helped to lend ballet a romantic allure, lacking in other forms. At The Olive Tree Studio, Claire Skelly of Dance Arc, brings her many years training, teaching and performance experience in the world of ballet to adults and children in Dublin’s City Centre. She teaches both Classical Ballet and Jazz Fusion forms at the Olive Tree Studio. Both Adults and Kids classes are suited to all levels from absolute beginners up.
Hip-Hop/ Street Dance
Hip-Hop, a street dance form that originated in the US in the 1970′s, began in urban black neighbourhoods and grew with the evolution of Hip-Hop music. Since then the form has spread throughout the world but continues to have a strong presence on the streets, although its influence has spread into theatres. Hip-Hop is seen as a community based form of dance that is constantly evolving, technique changes and is improved but it still maintains a link to Hip-Hop music and is usually performed to Hip-Hop music. At The Olive Tree Studio, we have two Hip-Hop classes, one for 7 to 12 year olds and one for 12+ Teens. Both dance classes are facilitated by the very talented Jade of Dance Arc, long time teacher and performer.
SynergyDance was developed by Charmaine Lee, Polarity Therapy educator and dancer, in the Washington DC area. This system blends different movement styles with Polarity Therapy for a body and mind healing effect. Based on the ancient elemental system of Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Ether, this movement system is now practised worldwide. SynergyDance at The Olive Tree Studio, is facilitated by Danielle Vierling, Polarity Therapist and Dance Teacher, usually, in the form of monthly workshops. This is a very freeing dance form that allows the practitioner to open the body and mind to free expression.
