Pre-Primary Classical Ballet

The syllabus introduces young children to classical ballet at an early age. This programme will enable children to learn basic ballet technique and positions, while developing musical awareness. Throughout the syllabus, children can really express themselves. Pre-Primary Ballet helps children understand the discipline needed in exam situations, but the experience is an enjoyable one that provides young learners with a real sense of achievement.

Graded Classes (BBO Levels 1-3)

Coming soon. To register your interest and join our waiting list, please contact us.

This syllabus builds on the ballet foundations developed throughout the pre-graded (primary and pre-primary) levels. Flexibility, strength and coordination will continue to improve. In addition, students will develop their knowledge of dance vocabulary, technical skill and artistic expression, demonstrated with growing confidence. Our early graded material covers a variety of barre and centre work, designed to equip students with the essential ballet repertoire.

Primary Classical Ballet

This syllabus builds on the exercises studied at the Pre-Primary level; furthering students’ understanding of the technical and artistic aspects of ballet. Greater emphasis is placed on developing core strength, flexibility and coordination. This lays a solid foundation for the more intricate syllabus studied in Graded Classes. Students will train harder, but still enjoy performing to music and showcasing their artistry.

Private Tuition

Adult Ballet

For adults, ballet remains a fantastic way to get toned, improve coordination, boost confidence and reconnect with their creative side.

We combine floor and barre exercises with exciting centre work, giving you the freedom to express yourself through movement. Students also have the opportunity to participate in performances with the rest of our school.

Whether you’re trying ballet for the first time, rekindling a childhood hobby or continuing your dance training, our adult ballet classes are fun and inclusive, catering for people of all shapes, sizes and abilities.
