Ballet shows up in every style of dance whether we like it or not. The more a student studies ballet, the more that student progresses, excels, and flourishes in every other style of dance. Even in Street you can be in a wide second position plié while rocking your upper body side to side. During that time in class, you might not even be aware that you just did a plié, but you did!
All of our classes are open to beginners and no previous experience is needed. Ballet teaches work ethic, dedication, perseverance, stamina, motivation, flexibility, and strength. Dancers work hard in ballet but the results are worth it. It can also be an outlet, helping to relieve stress and anxiety. In addition to sweating out toxins, there is a decreased risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease and bone loss.
Our children’s classes work towards their International Dance Rewards. Where they have a list of targets to learn and achieve. There are ones for every level and certificates and badges can be purchased upon completion.
Intermediate Foundation RAD – We are running this for the first time this year. It will be a year long course with minimum age 11 and with adequate knowledge of ballet and pointe work required.
All our students also get the opportunity to be involved in our Dance School’s end of year show in June!
