Jazz is the perfect style for those dancers looking to merge their love of technique, modern music, strength and conditioning, flexibility and stylised movement. Norris jazz classes are for all ages and our teachers focus on proper technique, alignment and age appropriate movement quality. We’ve recently introduced the IDT (International Dance Technique) Syllabus which has brought a new level of fun and excitement to the Norris Studios Family.
Lyrical classes at Norris are about dancers learning how to express themselves and tell stories through dance. This is a technically focused class, blending the classical styles of Ballet with modern Jazz movements. Lyrical is a popular choice across all ages at Norris as it uses powerful and energetic progressions; making classes both exciting and engaging.
Our Contemporary classes are a fusion of styles, seeing a blend of Contemporary and Modern dance. It’s all about learning to interpret music, control the body, breath, and explore different styles of music and movement, all while still having attention to the technical elements required. At Norris, we encourage our students to find their individual dance style. We challenge them to flourish and feel confident performing outside of their comfort zone.
Ballet is the foundation of most modern dance forms which is why we believe it is a necessity for all young, aspiring dancers. This is a demanding style which teaches technique, poise, strength and increased body awareness. Ballet classes at Norris are available for everyone, from Pre School ages through to advanced levels.
Pointe is an elegant, sophisticated style which can be added to your Ballet repertoire. This style requires both basic Ballet technique and an increased level of strength. For these reasons, at Norris we offer this style to our older Ballet students only.
PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique) is a technique-based programme which has recently been introduced at Norris. It has been created to enhance dancer’s technique by teaching the fundamentals of core stability, correct alignment and weight placement. Students will gain a base knowledge of how to work their muscle memory which will help support all forms of dancing.
Tap is an energetic style of dance performed using the plates on tap shoes to strike the floor. Learning tap at Norris will help dancers with their musicality, rhythm and percussion. Our teachers are dedicated to helping students learn the foundation steps, while aiding each child to find their individual tap style.
Hip Hop classes at Norris teach rhythm, musicality, coordination and choreography while dancing to age appropriate, modern music. Our students are challenged to think quickly while enjoying an energetic, fun and funky class. Our Hip Hop dancers develop strength and agility while learning the fundamentals of Hip Hop. This is an excellent class, for all ages; the skills are transferable and can help dancers improve the quality of their movement.
Our Acrobatics classes focus on developing strength, flexibility, coordination, agility and tumbling skills. Students will be supported to achieve their acrobatic goals in a safe environment with two teachers present at all times. These classes are popular across all ages and levels. The recent introduction of the AcroLink Syllabus has provided an exciting opportunity for our Norris dancers be formally recognised for their acrobatic achievements. This is a great class for everyone looking to build their dancing portfolio.
At Norris we believe in teaching our dancers how to stretch safely and properly; we feel this is crucial for helping to prevent injury. We teach a variety of dynamic and static stretching techniques to help develop flexibility, which will enhance your overall dance quality. Within these classes we will also focus on building your strength to support your flexibility, but also your overall performance quality. The more strength and muscle awareness you have, the better performer you will be. We encourage all dancers to take stretch classes and would recommend starting these at a young age.

Cabaret at Norris teaches poise, elegance and strength in a style that doesn’t come naturally to many. This is a dynamic class that will help increase dancer’s versatility. This style is suitable for male and female dancers of all abilities but recommended for those 10years and older. Our dedicated staff will focus on the proper technique required for this style and girls will be taught how to confidently dance in heels the appropriate height for their age.

Our Musical Theatre classes are designed to help children work on other performance elements such as singing and acting. Our goal is to help them become triple threats, preparing them for life as a stage show performer. We also cover elements of Broadway-style Jazz choreography to compliment the singing and acting. Our teachers introduce a variety of musical productions to our classes and you’re guaranteed a fun time. Musical Theatre is a great class for students who love to perform and we encourage it to help with self confidence and overall stage presence.
Our Boys Zone classes are designed to encourage all boys to try out all styles of dancing while being taught by a male teacher. We believe it’s important to provide this environment to support bringing out the best in your dancer. Specific boys technique will be taught in our Boys Zone classes which helps to build up strength and agility.
Norris encourages everyone to enjoy new experiences and shine. If your dancer loves performing on stage and is passionate about dance then a personalised solo or being a member in one of our many troupes is for them. We teach competition work across almost all styles and would love to help your dancer flourish. Competitive dancing at Norris promotes teamwork, dedication, positive energy and self-confidence in a safe and supportive environment.

These programs are exclusive to Norris Studios and are not to be missed, especially by those dancers looking to really improve across all genres. Catering to all ages and levels, this program is designed to expose dancers to most styles of dance, with a strong focus on progressing technique, strength, agility, fitness, flexibility, perseverance, passion and fun.
