Children's Dance Classes

Ballet

10 week Ballet courses under the expert guidance of professional dancer and children's instructor Cinzia. 

Pre-Primary Ballet for 3-4 year olds develops children's physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression and musicality. It aims to improve motor development and physical fitness, increase self-control, coordination and self-expression and develop sensitivity to music through movement.

Primary Ballet for 4-5 year olds promotes the enjoyment of movement as a form of physical exercise, encouraging self-expression whilst building children's physical skills, creativity and expression and self-confidence.

RAD Grade 1 Ballet for 5-7yrs provides a broad practical dance education, developing the technical, musical and performing skills of children. Through the use of musically inspired exercise and dance, children learn joy in movement, creative interpretation and sense of dance and performance quality.

All students will be prepared and encouraged to take The Royal Academy of Dance graded exams. However, this is not compulsory and other arrangements can be made.
