At Dance Project Studios (Pembroke), founded in 2007 by Kristina Ann Schranz, we amalgamate various forms of creative arts with a particular focus on merging classical dance with the latest commercial MTV-style street moves and funky jazz fusions. We offer classes in Hip Hop, Jazz Modern, Lyrical and Modern Contemporary alongside preparatory classes for ISTD Modern Theatre and Cecchetti Ballet examinations working up to vocational level. Furthermore we have developed the very first and only Hip Hop Dance Diploma in Malta.
Over the years the portfolio of disciplines offered at Dance Project Studios has continued to evolve and currently also includes Commercial Fusion, Acro Dance, PBT and Vaganova Method Ballet, Spanish, Tap, Vocal and a Musical Theatre Programme.
Dance Project Studios aim to revolutionise educational and cultural boundaries fostering a philosophy of dance is for everyone and without discriminating in terms of gender, age or experience. Naturally, as an established school, we offer classes at all levels allowing students from as young as 2 years of age to grow and develop as beginners working towards professional standards over time. All that is required from a student is motivation and a passion for the arts and creativity.
The school operates on a trimester basis running from October through to June of the following year with a summer programme and specialised workshops over the summer period. Now with over 400 students, each are able to participate in the annual school production - a highlight of the scholastic year with a breath-taking performance display ahead of the Easter break for an audience of some 900 individuals. Throughout the scholastic year students are prepared for examinations in various disciplines of dance and performaance for which examinations are facilitated via various examining boards.
We coordinate yearly dance holidays to international festivals and performance events as well as participating in local and world dance championships. In addition, we also commission the services of famed overseas choreographers in order to conduct local workshops that further increase the experience and exposure of students.
Dance Project Studios is effectively an extended family – a family of performers – an atmosphere we strive to nurture both inside and outside the studios, hence building lifelong relationships.
