Ballet is a classical dance style and we follow the ISTD syllabus (Imperial Society of Dance Teachers). Ballet is a well known style which works on grace and control within each movement and uses the arms and legs to create effortless images. 

Skills develop through the grades as the classes get harder. Every child is different and will progress into the next grade when they are ready. Examinations can be taken in these classes from Primary level. Classical ballet is the foundation from which many dance forms have developed. Elegant, graceful and technically demanding it is considered a core skill to enable students to progress onto other dance genres. Boys and girls can begin ballet classes from two years old. As students progress they have the opportunity to take ISTD Imperial Ballet exams.
