SYLLABUS AND LEARNING TOOLS
The BJP syllabus consists of six routines performed to music, designed to teach dance skills and develop fitness, strength and flexibility. Every age group has its own routines and music with choreography designed to be achievable by all skill-levels.
Marching: Teaches good posture, body alignment, toe points, strength and stretch in the legs and body.
Warm Up: A cardiac work out targeting correct positions, strength and control in aerobic dance. Fitness and stamina are improved.
Floor Drill: An exercise performed on the floor that develops flexibility, strength and control.
Relaxed / Contemporary: A pretty routine involving basis classical ballet or contemporary moves teaching musicality, grace and turnout.
Exercises: A standing routine requiring balance, control, strength, accurate positions and flexibility.
Dance: A modern jazz style dance that everyone loves to learn. It is performed to the latest music and teaches musicality & expression. The dance improves stamina, strength and presentation with a big smile!
POSITIVE BODY IMAGE
Physie teaches the students to have a positive relationship with their bodies. Students blossom with confidence and self assurance and it provides an opportunity to build bonds of friendship and a
feeling of belonging.
WHAT TO WEAR AND BRING TO YOUR CLASS
We like the girls to wear a singlet top and tights or shorts to classes so we the teachers are able to see and ensure the correct positions of the girls. We also like them to bring a water bottle, as we need them to stay hydrated during class.
We do ask that the girls not run around while a class is in progress and no noise please as class concentration is very important to students on the floor.
