About our Classes
Below are listed the classes we offer. Please contact us if you would like to know when any of these classes are held, the cost, or to ask any other questions about any classes. Most adult classes cost $10, or $8 concession (unemployed/pensioner/student/school student/child – must show concession card). However if you attend 9 classes you get the 10th one free!
'All Levels' Class
The 'All Levels' class caters for all levels from beginners to more experienced students. It really doesn't matter if you have three left feet - just come along and join in the fun!
During a Nefertiti class we warm up, followed by learning or further developing movement skills. We then focus on learning a choreographed dance; dances are taught in tiny bite-sized pieces so that students have plenty of time to learn and practise the steps. We usually learn one dance per term, but sometimes a dance will flow into two terms.
In the last half hour of this class, students revise previously learned dances. New students are encouraged to 'have a go' copying the revised dances, but they may simply watch if they prefer. We finish the class with a relaxing cool down and stretches to maintain muscle flexibility.
What to wear/bring:
You do not need any special clothes or 'gear'. You only need:
- Loose or stretchy clothing,
- Shoes not necessary (but ballet/dance shoes, available from dance or exercise supply shops, are good),
- Water to drink,
- Scarf to put around your hips (not essential), and
- A sense of fun!
Dance Practice Class:
Dance Practice class is designed primarily for students who want to perform in public. The class teaches performance technique in addition to practising choreographies and the focus is on upcoming performances. Any student who wishes to perform must attend this class regularly.
All students are welcome to join this class, even if they would just like to practise dances, without wishing to perform. We do not pressure students to perform; it is up to you if and when you feel ready.
Private one-on-one or small group tuition is available on request. This can be very helpful to beginning students, or students wanting to focus on a particular area of technique. Please contact us for details.
