Our Dance Classes


5th Element Dance (formerly Nicole Marshman Dance) provides dance classes to suit all ages, levels and abilities. All of our classes have a unique structure that while the students are having fun and getting fit they are learning all the technique and skills they will need if they ever decide to teach dance or become a dancer, while progressing at their own pace. If students show the potential and a passion to take dance further we offer classes and opportunities to help them succeed. Our Excellence Programs challenge the exceptionally talented dancer, leading to part-time and full-time dance courses with various registered training organisations in Australia or internationally.

Please Contact us if you have any queries about which classes would best suit your dancer.

ContemporaryContemporary


Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet, and can be performed to many different styles of music.
