Pre-Primary Ballet

Suitable for children aged 7+ years and over without prior experience.

Our Pre-Primary Ballet Classes (for boys and girls) are aimed at slightly older children. Each week children continue to build on the foundations of Classical Ballet technique whilst working towards the IDTA examinations (if they want to). These classes allow pupils to explore the following IDTA syllabus including Primary, Juvenile and Team Dance Award. At this level pupils continue to explore the wonderful world of Ballet through lots of fun unique games and activities developing strength, flexibility, knowledge and team working skills. There are also lots of opportunities for pupils to take part in community performance events as well as our own annual Recital and summer showcase.


Grade Four/Five Ballet

This class is for pupils who have completed Grades one, two and three Ballet Examinations. Pupils work towards the Bronze Ballet Medal before progressing to take the Grade Four Examination. The class structure at this level is preparing the dancer to recite un-seen Enchainment work which is part of the Grade Four Examination. This is taught through theoretical and practical tasks where pupils will build their knowledge of vocabulary and terminology of Classical Ballet language. In addition to this the class also includes body conditioning, flexibility and strengthening exercises as well as Progressive Ballet Technique, pre-pointe work preparation and the foundations of Pointe work.
