Evolution Dance Academy offers a wide variety of classes to ages 2 and upwards. The classes are grouped according to age and ability. We don't choose to hold a child back and try to encourage students to take the exam grade or move up when we feel that they are ready. An example of the classes we offer are as follows;
Ballet for pleasure, Ballet for the more serious-minded. This classical style of expressive movement has something to offer for everyone. Ballet dates back to the 17th century. The conventional steps, grace and fluidity of movement are still found in Ballet today. Choreographers have been influenced by composers through the ages. Ballet has a technique which is the foundation of all dance.
Tap is rhythm - rhythm is tap. Its origins are many and varied. Americans claim its origin dates from the African Jazz age. The Irish stake their claim to the Jigs and Step Dancing. The English relate back to northern Clog Dancers but whichever one chooses to believe, Tap is as popular today as it was in the heyday of the great Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals. Evergreen shows, 42nd Street and Crazy For You, and the more reecnt Stomp and Tap Dogs highlight the great diversities of style and music in tapping. Tap classes are currently running in Edenbridge, Lingfield and Sevenoaks. Please see our timetable for more info

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. Contemporary dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor. This dance genre is often done in bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed to many different styles of music. Contemporary dance classes are running in Edenbridge and Sevenoaks. Please see our timetable for more info.
