Foundation Tap & Modern with Melody Bear

Foundation Tap & Modern with Melody Bear is based around Melody Bear performing in a show at a theatre.  Children join Melody Bear as she nervously warms up to perform.  Her ‘I am a Star’ exercise reassures Melody Bear and her dancers that they have the confidence and self-belief to perform.   After the warm-ups the class plan is divided into Acts, with Act I as the ‘Dance of the Drum’ with routine choices including Melody Bear’s Native American story ‘Little White Dove’, Safari Explorer or Steel Drum Carnival.  Act 2 includes the modern showstopper routines of the Chocolate Factory and Wizard Academy.  The change into tap shoes is introduced as the interval with Act 3 including a range of tap exercises using music from past decades.  Act 4 includes the tap showstopper routines of the Olden Days Playtime and At the Races.  Melody Bear’s Showstopper routines are based on musical theatre shows to perform as class routines reinforcing the musical theatre thematic thread of this syllabus.

As with the Ballet Foundation syllabus, notes are included on how to prepare and conduct the Foundation Tap & Modern Graduation Ceremony as children say farewell to Melody Bear with the final ‘Encore’ dance.
