Preschool: Our preschool classes are all about movement to music while disguising basic technique and co-ordination into fun, energetic exercises. We also use props and imaginative sequences to bring out the best in our young ballerinas which will in turn help develop their cognitive and gross motor skills. There is a new theme for each term which makes learning much more captivating!
Age 5 & up: As your child progresses to school age there will be a little more focus on the ballet fundamentals, however we will maintain a fun class as this is the best environment for your child to learn in. Through the age groups there will be some barre work, but most of the lesson will take place in the centre. As an RAD teacher, we will utilize this syllabus as well as pulling inspiration from various ballet syllabi and teachings throughout the world.
