PERFORMING ARTS SCHOOL | GRADES 5 TO 12
Dynamite Studios Academy Performing Arts School is a DSA innovation. The first of its kind in Australia, we opened the doors to our high school in 2012. Our Performing Arts School provides a unique opportunity to students who want to work towards a performing arts career and gain relevant qualifications whilst completing their educational studies. In 2022, Dynamite saw another first with the introduction of primary Years 5 and 6.
Our school offers a unique educational experience. Students work in small focus groups with school supervisors who ensure they are understanding and retaining knowledge learnt in their distance education lessons, building their confidence with independent work and study. Our pioneering approach to education is based on providing the conditions and support the students need to be self-directed and motivated to engage in their learning opportunities.
We believe that students need to acquire a broad set of skills in order to achieve success in further education, and in life. It is critical that students develop the skills necessary for life and work. To prepare students we offer a rigorous curriculum that includes the teaching of valuable skills such as communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity. We strive to enrich and extend each student to ignite a love of learning that will become a life-long pursuit.
READY SET MOVE (Walking Age to 2 Years)READY SET MOVE is a 45 minute creative movement and music class for toddlers and their grown up. This class consists of a variety of sections that involve the exploration of music and rhythm, sensory play, obstacle courses, and free dance movement which develops creativity with instruments, feathers, and bubbles. This program is catered to any grown-up (Mum, Dad, Grandparent, Uncle etc).
READY SET DANCE & READY SET BALLET (2 Years to 5 Years)READY SET COMBO is a ninety-minute Ready Set Dance and Ready Set Ballet combo class of jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, singing, and music - and a whole lot of fun! The program caters to two levels (2-3 years, and 4-5 years), each of which encompasses age-appropriate dynamics for children to enjoy. Students enrolled in our READY SET COMBO classes have the opportunity to develop strength, control, balance, and achieve coordination milestones (such as skipping) before going to school. Through our ballet program, our preschool students develop body awareness, strength, and flexibility through both visual and auditory instruction. Our students have fun twirling with rainbow ribbons, swaying with feathers, and popping bubbles.
LITTLE DYNAMITESOur Little Dynamites program is a 1-hour combination class that includes learning and mastering gymnastics, acrobatics, circus skills, as well as dance and music to stimulate physical and mental development. Classes are loads of fun, with a focus on the development of gross motor skills (such as jumping, running, climbing, and balancing), and an introduction to tumbling (such as somersaults, cartwheels, and handstands).
