Classical ballet lays the foundation for professional dancers, including the best jazz dancers. It also provides the discipline required for many of life's other pursuits. Whether ballet is studied for health, pleasure or as a future career, its benefits are numerous and we suggest students study at least two classes per week when they reach Primary level in order to develop a strong, healthy and well poised body. Ballet trains the body carefully, developing strength, control, coordination and line. Our syllabus, Cecchetti, is recognised world-wide as training for dance professionals and we aim for the highest standars for our young dancers.
Students will only be entred for exams when their teacher is confident that they have acquired a full understanding of the required level. Children will vary greatly in their development, absorbing knowledge and mastering skills at different rates to each other. It is important that the exam system enhances the learning experience, adding to their confidence and strengthening their self esteem. These qualities will be significant for some children and not for others.
