Classes

The main emphasis is to nurture the joy of dancing. This is done by increasing strength, co-ordination and musicality as well as developing the child’s creativity and self-expression. The school is all- inclusive and children with varied learning and physical needs are fully integrated into the ballet classes.

 

Generally the pupils attend Ballet Classes once a week but may attend more classes per week if they wish. This is in order to accommodate the busy lives of children with their increased workload at school combined with other activities. However in order for pupils to be fully prepared for ballet exams it is compulsory to attend an additional weekly exam coaching class in the term leading up to the exams.

 

Ballet is an art form that requires a lot of training therefore regular attendance is advised.
