Our Butterfly and Dragonfly Ballet and Tap Class (for boys and girls) are aimed at children aged 4 to 6 years of age. Each week children begin to learn the basics of ballet and tap dance as well as continuing to develop posture and coordination of motor skills. The school follow the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) syllabus where children have the opportunity to work towards examinations and rosettes (it is however not compulsory and children are more than welcome to just participate and move up to the next level without assessments taking place). Alongside leaning the IDTA syllabus children will also participate in other ballet and tap class exercises and activities designed by the Teacher to help build imagination, creativity and social skills.
Suitable for children aged 7-12 years of age.
