We offer examinations in RAD ballet and ISTD and IDTA modern and tap known for professional standards and quality teaching. The exams are accredited and provide UCAS points (that count toward University). Exams are encouraged as they allow the children to show the hard work they have put in and measure their progress, but not compulsory.
All students are invited to perform in the school show and demonstrations. Class tests and demonstrations are also held so everyone gets a chance to demonstrate their hard work. We also like to feel part of the local community by performing in local fetes and events.
We include free creative work and themed sessions in our classes which encourages and develops a sense of performance, creativity and musicality for all our students.
We are always keen to introduce new dance styles including lyrical and contemporary dance so that all our students are well rounded performers. We also have guest teachers and workshops that offer students to try a range of new and current dance trends.
Ballet Be Fit is a fitness class inspired by ballet. It includes a warm up, barre work, muscular conditioning exercises including the arms and upper body as well as leg and lower body toning exercises. It finishes with stretching and relaxation exercises which means it is also beneficial for overall well-being.
It is a low impact exercise class which means it is suitable for people with health issues as it allows them to participate safely and carefully.
We also offer Pure Ballet classes specifically designed for adults. We follow the technique of the RAD but in a safe and supportive environment where everyone is welcomed and encouraged to blossom and learn ballet steps and choreography.
“Loving my ballet class with Elaine. These are fab classes to work on flexibility and strength whilst having fun at the same time. Elaine is so welcoming and makes you feel relaxed whilst taking a class. Highly recommended.“
