Our Classical Ballet syllabus runs from Pre-Primary up to an Advanced level of expertise. The syllabus is designed to nurture and encourage dancers to appreciate the enjoyment of movement, develop flexibility and strength, in harmony with the whole body. The syllabus levels gradually increase in technical ability, grace and charm, the basis of all great dance.
Our syllabus focuses on providing learners with a fantastic grounding in classical ballet technique, as well as developing musicality and artistry.
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.
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.
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.
