Our classes have a clear, well balanced structure to them and we put a lot of thought and time into ensuring you child is learning, having fun and their holistic development is being supported. Your child will learn an abundance of age appropriate skills and steps whilst being suitably challenged and encouraged each step of the way, we believe this provides the essentials of dance to become a creative, confident and versatile individual. As children progress through the classes they receive the appropriate teaching for that age and level, ensuring they build not only dance skills but an appreciation for the arts and many self development skills to ensure they are competent to move into the next class. Whilst we teach in a professional manner we have a special way of making our classes fun, engaging and very nurturing.
Class sizes are kept small to ensure children receive optimum teaching and feel comfortable within the class.
Please note the ages for classes are just a guideline and it is important children have the skills and confidence before moving up a class.
The Prep Ballet class is a great step up from our Tiny Tot’s Ballet Programme, or if your child is new to dance and aged between 4- 5.5 years old and wants to learn all the wonderful beginnings of Ballet.
This 35 minute class will expose your child to Ballet positions including 1st and 2nd position, along with the introduction of set excercises such as tendus, plies, retires and travelling moves. Your child will learn the foundations of ballet in a fun engaging manner to a combination of music and themes. This class focuses on building your child’s confidence and skills to be more independent in their dancing and ready for the Pre-Ballet class.
Parents are able to stay for these classes, except for when we are preparing for the concert. This is so children can then build up their confidence and rapport with their class and teacher, making them feel competent to carry out the concert and prepare for the Pre Ballet class.
