Dance

BALLET

Ballet is a wonderful way to improve physical fitness and strength. In children it helps to aid their spatial awareness. It stimulates their listening skills, enhances their appreciation of music and builds their confidence. Children love to express themselves through dance and ballet is a joyous way to encourage expressive movement. Along the way, they usually even make new friends!

We teach fun and imaginative Baby Ballerinas (see below), Pre-School and RAD Grades & Vocational classes from age 2 years and up. Our classes follow the syllabi of the Royal Academy of Dance and students may be entered for their Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Examinations. The RAD is one of the world's largest and most influential dance training organisations. Our Ballet classes are taught by a fully qualified RAD teacher.

BABY BALLERINAS

A fun and imaginative class designed for our youngest dancers aged 2 – 3 years. All baby ballerinas should bring along their favourite adult to help them through their paces. Children will improve their co-ordination and balance and will dance their way through this class full of stories, fun, music and lots of imagination! Each Baby Ballerinas class concludes with a free drink and biscuit for the children. This class is a lovely way to introduce your little ones to the world of dance!

ADULT BALLET

Our Adult ballet class is a mixed ability class, where everyone is encouraged to work to their potential. Through the graceful exercises and choreography of a typical ballet class you will experience improved posture, increased flexibility and stamina, strengthened and toned abs, arms and legs and greater poise. There is no uniform, just come in loose comfortable clothing, but ballet shoes are required. This is a lovely class for those wishing to take some time out of a busy life and focus on yourself with a group of like-minded people.
