Our pre school dance classes (3.5 yrs to 5 years old) incorporates basic dance and ballet technique, music and props, encourages gross motor development, rhythm and co-ordination. Our programs are strongly influenced by current pre-school education trends in teaching through play acknowledging that pre-school children are a highly imaginative age group with pretend play being an important aspect of child development.
Junior ballet (5-7 yrs ) which follow on from the preschool programs, Next Steps is developed to be an inspiring, challenging and fun approach to learning classical ballet. The children learn excerpts from the classical ballets like Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and the Nutcracker. The emphasis is still on your child’s enjoyment without neglecting the spirants program is developed to be the next stage in learning classical ballet. Unlike Next Steps, Aspirants doesn’t follow a class theme, but follows the structure of a traditional ballet class with barre work and centre practice. They will also participate in an exam at the end of the year and receive a certificate and a trophy.
