What we offer
Melani School of Dance offers various activities to stimulate the young dancer and provide them with the necessary skills and experience to continue into adulthood with a professional approach to anything they pursue as well as opening the door to dance as a career path.
We offer each child the freedom to dance and develop at their own pace. Whether dancing just for fun or dancing with serious goals and to compete. Each student is seen as an individual and nurtured accordingly as we take a holistic approach to each child’s development and needs.
We offer a variety of examinations, International & Internal examinations:
Concerts & productions
Workshops and events
RAD BALLET EXAMINATIONS Royal Academy of Dance exams provide the opportunity for dancers to attain their personal best and have fun, have a goal to work towards, and receive recognition from the world’s largest examining body while preparing dancers for careers in dance and an opportunity to compete on an international level.
RAD BALLET CLASS AWARD The RAD class Award is a supported form of the same examination material. It is marked in a less formal manner and the class teacher is present. Ballet teachers will generally not enter students for an examination if they believe the student will not meet the technical standard required to pass the exam. In that case, the class award is the ideal choice for the candidate.
AIDT MODERN & TAP EXAMINATIONS The A.I.D.T. is an examining body, whose aim is to promote the teaching and standard of Modern, Tap and Hip Hop dancing. A comprehensive syllabus in all sections enables students from the age of five years upwards, to learn the correct technique, develop discipline and musicality while enjoying the dancing experience.
AIDT MODERN & TAP EVALUATION The AIDT evaluation is a supported form of the same examination material. It is marked in a less formal manner and is still conducted as a proper exam. Teachers will generally not enter students for an examination if they believe the student will not meet the technical standard required to pass the exam and will use the evaluation in this case.
