Dance Genres

At Southport Dance Academy we offer classes in the following genres.

Tiny Tots

This is a reception class for all dance genres starting at two and a half years. We teach the children to hop, skip and move to the music, incorporating gentle stretching and strengthening exercises. The classes develop co-ordination and boost confidence.

Mini Stars

This incorporates street, cheerleading and musical theatre. An excellent class for an alternative to ballet. Great for boys.


A highly technical form of dance that helps build the foundation of all styles.


Tap is a form of dance characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion.


This technique incorporates jazz and contemporary. It builds strength and develops flexibility. It also develops choreography which assists with GCSE and A level dance.


This urban style of dance is fun and good exercise using all the current hit music.


Intense physical activity for team motivation. It includes dance jumps, cheers and basic stunts.


This is a theatrical interpretation of Irish dancing. It includes soft shoe and hard shoe techniques.

Musical Theatre

This combines singing, dancing and acting, and is great for confidence building.


Suitable for all ages from 5 years old. We cover dramatic activities, texts, diction and creative improvisation.
