Wee Tots (18months - 2.5yrs)

Mini Movers (2.5 - 4yrs)

Mini Movers introduces new movements to the student, in turn facilitating creative ideas, and the beginnings of technique, posture, and alignment, all while placing an emphasis on self-expression. Creative ideas are explored in pairs and groups, discovering how to work together. We start to learn new moves through short dance exercises, sequences, and games to develop and investigate new ways to express ourselves.


Ballet

Ballet is the foundation of all dance training. This fun yet challenging genre begins with our pre-school classes where the basic steps and positions of the arms and feet are taught through imaginative movement. As the student progresses they will partake in syllabus (RAD and ISTD) and non-syllabus classes that focus on technique, more complex movement skills, building confidence and self-esteem. Examinations are not compulsory however students are encouraged to take examinations when they have reached the required standard.

Pre-School/Nursery Ballet (2.5yrs upwards)
Pre-Primary Ballet (Reception/Year1)
