Student Dress Code

While we are not entirely strict when it comes to appearances in training, there are a few guidelines that should be followed when choosing what to wear when attending classes and private lessons.

Private Lessons Available for:

Slowdance and Freestyle remain popular dance forms in South Africa. Both can be considered high energy and involve the careful sequencing of runs, spins, kicks, jumps and leaps as well as many other rhythmically diverse steps and movements inclusive of arm and hand action. Despite one style being slower than the other, both employ contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery,  and unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction. Most Importantly, both styles allow the dancer individual freedom of expression to enhance their own individual style.

Acrobatics is a testament to the extraordinary capabilities of the human body. Focused technical training in extreme flexibility, overall strength and endurance are needed to execute extraordinary feats with precision while seamlessly integrating forms of classical, modern and contemporary dance styles. Acrobatics remains a highly popular dance form in South Africa.

Disco Dance is free and encompasses a range of borrowed steps from other genres of dance, all kinds of movements are permitted, but Disco Dance steps and movements dominate. Disco bares some similarities to Freestyle and employs the use of centre body rhythm throughout, accented lines and strong technical movements at high speeds which are characteristic of this dance style. No acrobatic Elements allowed!

Disco Dance Freestyle, much like Disco Dance, is free and encompasses a range of borrowed steps from other genres of dance, all kinds of movements are permitted, but Disco Dance steps and movements dominate. Disco bares some similarities to Freestyle and employs the use of centre body rhythm throughout, accented lines and strong technical movements at high speeds which are characteristic of this dance style. The main difference between the above mentioned styles is that Disco Dance Freestyle encompasses elements as would be found in gymnastics/acrobatic. Dancers are seen transitioning in and out of these gymnastics/acrobatic elements as smoothly as seamlessly as possible incorporating Disco Dance elements throughout.

A 1959 dance book describes Rock n’ Roll as performed without undue tension, the body and legs being flexible so that there may be a physical rhythmic expression of co-ordination with the beats of music. A dance that leaves much scope for personal expression and interpretation in style, movement, rhythm, and even in the manner in which the figures are constructed. Requires a level of dedication and understanding in order to sucessfull execute routines with good technique and style.

The Hustle is a catch name for some disco dances that were extremely popular in the 1970’s. Today it mostly refers to the unique partner dance done in ballrooms and nightclubs. The SADTA refined and developed its very own unique and technical style as seen in the medal syllabus and on the competition floor. Hustle requires a level of dedication and understanding in order to successfully execute routines with good technique and style.
