Junior Ballet classes are held on Tuesdays throughout school terms. Children may attend from 2 ½ years upwards and can start at any time of the year. Every child will be found a class to suit their experience and ability. Classes are very friendly and a great way to make friends in the Club.
Our lessons are based on the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus which teaches basic ballet techniques and develops coordination and concentration. For those children that wish to get formally certified, they can take the Royal Academy of Dance grade exams. Our experience is that children enjoy the challenge of these exams as they are set in an enjoyable environment, though this is probably helped by the fact that our candidates have always passed their grades!
Children also perform in a variety of shows throughout the year, notably the Winter Recital. There is ‘open class’ at the end of the Spring term where the children demonstrate what their progress throughout the term. During the summer, children have to opportunity to perform in the Summer Ballet demonstration when they receive Awards Certificates.
