Welcome to KMS Dance Studio
Welcome to West Auckland’s KMS Dance Studio.
Dance is beneficial for all ages, and KMS Dance Studio aims to instill a love of dance in all, from our pre-school group, right through to our adult, young-at-heart dance students
2017, Term 1 (starts after Waitangi Day) February 7th - Friday 15th April
KMS Dance Studio provides a dynamic learning environment, with a focus on training and preparing young ballet dancers with talent, aptitude and dedication to ultimately pursue a career as a professional ballet dancer. Specialising in ballet and contemporary dance, we offer expertise, experience and knowledge, led by a former professional ballet dancer.
Our New Lynn venue caters to the recreational dancer and offers a variety of non-syllabus based classes in Classical Ballet, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap Dance (NEW for 2017), Creative Dance and Adult Ballet / Contemporary classes.
Our Classical Ballet classes for boys and girls, are suitable for beginners through to advanced dancers, and the aspiring pre-professional, with assessments or examinations available and our intensive Dancer in Development full-time programme for the young aspiring classical dancer.
KMS Dance Studio offers fun introductory classes from the age of 8 years old with our Kinder Platinum class in New Lynn. We introduce the NZAMD syllabus later as we believe contemporary dance demands a certain emotional maturity and core strength and our students may either sit an exam or a medal test during the year. Contemporary is offered both as a syllabus and in Open Classes in our Pt Chevalier and New Lynn venues.
Creative Dance classes cater for pre-school to 11 years, and are suitable for boys and girls who like the opportunity to mix music and movement. These popular classes encourage fun, creativity and imagination.
Jazz puts emphasis on the dancer’s presentation, energy and style. Major grades contain a range of combination styles including funk, latin, rock n roll, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary and cabaret influences, to name a few! Our classes follow the NZAMD Jazz Examination Syllabus.
Our Full Time Ballet ProgrammeDancer in Development is for young, talented and dedicated students who wish to have a career as a professional dancer. Entry is by audition or invitation only. We are currently taking applications for 2017 start. Apply now! Our inaugural year has seen successful placings for 2017 at the New Zealand School of Dance, Queensland Ballet Academy and Prudence BowenAtelier, Australia.
Mid-year intakes may be considered on a case by case basis.
Hip hop classes
Hip hop can be seen in many music videos, and this is a great class to attend if you want to learn sequences or dances just for fun! Our hip hop open classes offer varied and exciting sequences from the teacher’s own dance vocabulary. NZAMD medal awards may be taken.
