Ballet - available for girls and boys of Pre-school age upwards.
Pre-school classes include movements, steps & short sequences performed to music or percussion instruments. The emphasis is on developing musicality & co-ordination in a fun environment.
Much of the work is approached through mimetic stories which helps unlock the children’s imagination and contributes greatly to developing expression & performance in dance.
Rosette exams are available from the age of 3. Over the years these have proved an excellent programme to help develop a child’s confidence. The children are entered in small groups and the test is verbally conducted by the teacher or assistant.
Pupils continuing further are prepared for Grade and Medal tests in the I.D.T.A.
Tap & Theatre-craft - available for 4 years and upwards.
