Angela Miltiade is the Head of the Dance deparment.
Potenzia’s dance department operates since 2002 and provides priority to the proper approach to the art and the teaching of the basic principles of ballet and modern dance. The small class sizes allow teachers to give individual attention to each student, ensuring their proper development and success in the Royal Academy of London (R.A.D.) exams, Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing(ISTD) and professional auditions.
The ballet department gives emphasis to examinations, and is also very active in involving its students in cultural events throughout Cyprus, often in collaboration with other institutions. In addition, the Dance Department organizes master classes and specialized dance seminars (musical style, Hip-Hop, Street Dancing, Funky Jazz, Contemporary etc.) with internationally recognized professional dancers, choreographers and dance instructors.
Ballet department follows the Graded Examinations in Dance Syllabus, which provide a broad practical dance education and develops technical, musical and performance skills. The department also offers the Vocational Graded Examinations in Dance syllabus, which provides an in-depth study of ballet, develops technique, music and performance skills and introduces “pointe work”, preparing students for a career in dance.
