Classes at GPAC




Classical Ballet is offered from 3 years of age to adult/professional level. We teach the RAD Syllabus (Royal Academy of Dance) and the Cecchetti Syllabus. Both Syllabi are internationally recognised for the highest level of training in both students and teachers. Teachers have to continually train to maintain their teaching qualifications by attending regular professional development courses. Ballet is the foundation for all dance, setting the student up with all the technical requirements for a dancer with correct posture, beauty of line, strength, agility and artistic expression.



Jazz and Tap is offered for students aged 3 years to adult/professional level. Jazz is a technical dance style danced to popular music as seen in music videos (commercial jazz), musical theatre (Broadway Jazz), cabaret and international stage productions (traditional jazz). Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one’s tap shoes hitting the floor (or other surfaces) as a percussive instrument.  Tap is most commonly found in musical theatre however a new genre “Street Tap” is becoming popular and this style of tap can be seen in movies like “Bootmen”.  We teach the Southern Federation of Dance (SFD) Jazz and Tap Syllabus and offer exams for students aged 5 years and up. SFD is an Australian syllabus based out of Melbourne.

Musical Theatre


Musical theatre is offered at Gerrards for students aged 6 years and up. Our class combines vocal technique and dance. Students work on a piece from a musical, movie or a well known show. A great class for building performance skills.



Contemporary dance incorporates classical technique with floor work, jumps, abstract shapes and creative body lines. Contemporary dance is powerful and beautiful and usually tells a story, or has underlying themes.



A fun activity for kids who like exploring their imagination and characters. Drama develops confidence, improved speech and performance skills.
