ACRO Acro is for strong dancers or who wish to gain strength in order to perform tricks YEM is qualified with the Acrobatic Arts exam board.
BALLET We train our ballerinas in the ISTD Cecchetti method, which is what you are most likely to see on stage. We offer exams with the ISTD, plus the opportunity to take part in shows. YEM hold the DDE in Cecchetti Ballet.
DRAMA For those comedic entertainers amongst us, we have LAMDA based drama classes in which to let off some theatrical steam with LAMDA trained teachers.
JAZZ Jazz demands accuracy and technique whilst contemporary builds strength, a core stability. Once jazz dancers have trained and reached a certain level they may be invited to join the contemporary class as this is a company class by invitation only. YEM hold Associate with PTD.
MUSICAL THEATRE Musical theatre; the reason why we are all here. We here at YEM love musicals and love to teach our students to learn and apply their dance and drama to our favourite musical songs. We offer a range of musical theatre workshops which train children to be all-round performers. These workshops are great for boosting confidence and self-esteem as well as making great friends. In these classes children learn a great deal of musical theatre repertoire, as well as opportunities to take exams and perform in shows. Some workshops focus on dance with musical theatre, some with drama rather than dance, and some include all three! So lots of choice for every individual and age! We are proud that all our musical theatre teachers have diplomas with LCM.
TAP Tap, perfect for tapping those troubles away. Brilliant traininh for rhythm, timing, musicality and attention to detail. YEM are qualified with PTD.
CONTEMPORARY For some expression and freedom in dance but also great training for strength, flexibility and choreographic skills. We follow many practioners including Graham and Cunningham primarily.
