Solo and Duos

Pinnacle Dance Academy offers private tuition for students who wish to participate in external competitions as a soloist or in a duo with another student.

Styles available for Solo/Duo Choreography are: 

Hip Hop

Ballet
Contemporary
Jazz
Tap

Acrodance
Lyrical

 

Students wishing to learn a particular style of solo or duo must be taking the relevant weekly class to do so.


Example: if your dancer wishes to learn a Lyrical solo, they must already be taking the Lyrical class for their age group. Two students wishing to do a Lyrical Duo must both be taking Lyrical together.

 

Parents with students wishing to learn a solo for competitions should contact  Pinnacle Dance Academy to discuss whether their child is ready for competitions.

 

It is a pre-requisite for all students wishing to do a solo or duo, that they must take a weekly ballet class to ensure technique is at an appropriate level for Dance Competitions. (Excluding Hip Hop, Acro & Tap Soloists/Duos)
