DEVO Classes

Designed to incorporate in equal parts; fun, fitness and dance skills, whilst empowering young people to grow into successful adults in all aspects of their life.

 

The DEVO class was conceived to create a dance class that:

  • focusses on the passion and fun of dancing
  • keeps young people fit and active
  • teaches technical skills in an exciting innovative way
  • empowers young people to grow into successful adults in all aspects of their life.

 

DEVO HIP HOP

DEVO HIP HOP CREW

We offer a fun hip hop crew for school years 3-5. Students will learn and polish a performance every term. It is compulsory for all crew members to also be enroled in a DEVO Hip Hop Class. This class is non-exam so students can join at the beginning of any term.

Hip Hop Crews school 6-8yrs are competition crews, maximum of 9 per crew. Crew classes run for 3 terms, enrolment is in term 1 only. Competitions are out of town, term 2 and 3. You must be committed to travelling for competitions, making every class possible and practicing at home. This is a team sport, you all account to each other.

Hip Hop Crews 9+yrs are also competition crews but they will be choreographing their own routines, thus there is no fee for these classes. Compulsory to also be enroled in a DEVO Hip Hop Class or DEVO Commercial Dance class or QSD Advanced class.
