Classical ballet is often described as the foundation for all dance styles and improves posture and co-ordination, whilst developing an ability to be expressive and communicative through movement. We offer ballet classes following the Royal Academy of Dance’s Graded and Vocational Graded syllabi.
Commencing at 4 years old in Pre-Primary in Dance students can work progressively through the grades to Grade 8. Within this syllabi students also learn free movement (influenced by and incorporating movement in common with natural movement and contemporary) and character dance (the theatrical presentation of national dance often seen within classical ballets). For those students who wish to further their dance training we also offer vocational graded syllabi which offers a more in depth study of ballet, developing students' technique, artistry and musicality. This is also where pointe work is introduced for female students.
