It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States. The television show Soul Train and the 1980s films Breakin',Beat Street, and Wild Style showcased these crews and dance styles in their early stages; therefore, giving hip-hop mainstream exposure it has now exploded and one of the most popular dance forms all over the world.

Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses on dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the jazz tradition. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal "tap" on the heel and toe. There are different brands of shoes which sometimes differ in the way they sound we recommend Bloch. Our teacher is an X champion competitive tapper and our students are now representing their country in this genre and competing all over the world in tap as well as each year passing their ISTD examinations with top marks.

The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is the world's leading dance examination board. The ISTD's chief objective is "to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms". To achieve this, the ISTD works in four main ways: • to promote a knowledge of dance • to maintain and improve teaching standards • to qualify, by examination, teachers of dancing in the ISTD's specialist techniques taught by our 10,000 members in schools of dancing throughout the world • to provide, through its syllabus, techniques upon which to train dancers for the profession. At G12 Performing Arts, children from the age of 5yrs, are trained in the ISTD syllabus. (Examinations are not compulsory, however most students do wish to partake). ISTD Examinations are well recognised qualifications all over the world. Striving to achieve their best in dance is a good foundation to take children through their school years and prepare them for the many exams and challenges that they will face. Dance exams are good fun and a pass is rewarded with a certificate. The vast majority of our students pass with a distinction!

G12 Performing Arts is the ultimate Singing School for the complete beginner to the professional, children to adults. We train vocalists in music genres across the board such as Popular Music, Musical Theatre, Classical, Jazz, R'n'B, and many more! It is important for those wanting to sing or develop their vocal to its full potential to grasp the bare basics of technique. Confidence building, microphone technique, tuning, pitching, breath control, range, power, vocal control, feeling, expression are just a small aspect of what you can cover in lessons, whether in private one to one tuition, in classes or on our courses. Our vocal coaches are experienced professionals who have been through the self-discovery vocal process in order to make your learning experience as intense and successful as can be. They therefore listen to you and work towards what it is you want to achieve. We work with you to develop your vocal skills to the maximum so you can give the best performance at all times with confidence. As well as developing confidence and the ability to work as part of a team, students studying drama have the opportunity to develop skills and understanding in creative problem solving, communication, self discipline, tolerance and empathy. Drama allows children to be active learners, engage and experience a vast range of ideas and situations in a safe and supportive atmosphere. Drama can give children an outlet for emotions, thoughts and dreams that they might not otherwise have a means to express. We hold practical classes that develop a range of communicative and interactive skills, as well as self awareness and self discipline. We work with the children on improvisation, acting for Film & Television, on-screen acting skills, audition and acting technique, working from a TV/film Script, acting for commercials, differences between TV/Film and stage acting, acting naturally in front of the camera and what to expect on a TV/film set. This is a fun class that motivates the children, helps them to think in new ways and explore their relation to each other, themselves and their environment as well as preparing them for TV, Commercial or Film auditions.
