“I was so inspired watching you…your passion for dance shines through, & your expectations on the girls, that they can do “it” correctly , or as perfect as they can be, as each student is different, is inspiring.” Chrissy Burrel
NO LIMITS. NO BOUNDARIES. JUST PASSION.
DEDICATION, COMMITMENT & DISCIPLINE
At IDS we encourage dancers to be the “best” they can be at every class. These qualities do not only serve a purpose in dance class but in general everyday life.
: From ages 14years and above, our dancers are challenged in EVERY class, developing new and advanced skills and techniques to reach competitive industry standards.
At this age, our dancers are encouraged to start taking ownership of their dancing and strive to reach personal goals and excel in every class.
TEAMWORK & SHOWMANSHIP
Whether it be at Eisteddfods, during Exam preparation or in weekly classes, dancers have to work as a team and support and encourage each other. Troupe work allows teams of dancers to collaborate, motivate each other and work as one.
