Our Philosophy

Whangarei Academy of Dance & Performing Arts (WADPA) is known for nurturing developing dancers in a safe and progressive way. We teach age and developmentally appropriate Ballet Tap & Modern/jazz technique classes from a syllabus that allows younger students more time for movement exploration while providing advanced students with the tools to become professional dancers, if they so choose. As a result, all of our students develop self-esteem, self-discipline, and a strong fitness level that will provide a powerful edge in any future endeavor.

 

Dance Courses Available

We teach from the BTDA syllabus in the following Genres:

BALLET    TAP     MODERN    LYRICAL    ACROBATIC

CONTEMPORARY   NATIONAL   PERFORMING ARTS

 

We also teach from the NZAMD Syllabus in the following genres:

TAP    JAZZ    BALLET

 

All students are encouraged to sit for exams once they are ready and all students perform in the end of the year Show.
