Ballet Classes

The aim of the school is to help each pupil gain as much benefit and enjoyment as possible from the classes. Pupils are given individual help and encouragement to develop imagination, self-confidence and dance quality as well as technique and musicality.

The classes are carefully graded to suit pupils at different levels.

An experienced pianist accompanies as many classes as possible, and music is used when we don't have a pianist.

Children can start dancing at the schools from two and a half years (coming soon, please register your interest for further information). These classes consist of songs with actions, stories and movements to develop co-ordination. Simple balletic movements are introduced at this stage but more formal teaching of technique does not begin until pupils are old enough to enjoy a more structured approach.
