Our aim at the Brigitte Gauci Borda School of Dance is to give our dancers a clean classical technique that is pure, without mannerisms. The overall effect should be one of artistry and musicality together with streamlined coordination of movement. Hence the training system we have adopted is based on the Cecchetti Method.
To say that the more discipline in the training the more evident is the sense of a natural flow of movement is not a contradiction in terms, and the joy of dance and sense of musicality which are thus brought about make the dancer develop as an artist in every sense. This creative process is enhanced by regular performances and by learning about dance.
The main dance discipline is Classical Ballet, where students sit for their annual Cecchetti Examinations of the Imperial Society of Teachers Dancing (ISTD). Foreign examiners mainly from the UK come to the school to examine students every year. Each student attains a certificate, which is recognised worldwide. Besides Classical Ballet, the school also excels in other dance disciplines offering classes in Modern Jazz Dance, Spanish Dance, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Ballroom, Latin, Zumba, Yoga and Stretch and Core classes thus giving students a vast knowledge of dance exploring it to its full capacity. ISTD examinations in Modern Jazz and Spanish Dance Society exams are also available for students who wish to sit for them.
The school also offers evening Adult Beginners classes in Classical Ballet, Ballroom and Zumba. Yoga and Fitness classes are also held in the mornings and evenings for adults.
