Suggested Programs:

3-5 years:

* Pre-School Ballet

One dance class per week provides an ideal starting point for young children. Our Pre-School Ballet classes introduce students to a range of inspiring movement/music styles.

6-7 years:

* RAD Primary Ballet * Junior Jazz * Junior Musical Theatre *Junior Acrobatics * Junior Tap

One dance class per week provides an ideal starting point for young children. Our Primary Ballet classes introduce students to a range of movement/music styles while our Jazz and Musical Theatre classes contain popular music and groovy moves! For particularly enthusiastic children, two classes per week offers a full experience of both modern and classical styles.

7-9 years:

* RAD Pre-Grade 1 Ballet * RAD Grade 1 Ballet * RAD Grade 2 Ballet * Pre-Inter Jazz * Pre-Inter Musical Theatre *Pre-Inter Acrobatics * Pre-Inter Contemporary * Pre-Inter Lyrical * Pre-Inter Hip-Hop *Pre-Inter Tap

One dance class per week will continue to develop skills and inspire enthusiasm for dance. However, we also recommend two or three dance classes per week for greater skill development and enjoyment. Ballet students wishing to take Royal Academy of Dance exams must attend at least two ballet classes per week (at the exam level) from Grade One Ballet level upwards.

10-13 years:

* RAD Grade 3/4/5 Ballet * RAD Intermediate Foundation Ballet * Classical Extensions * Inter Jazz * Inter Musical Theatre *Inter Acrobatics * Inter Contemporary * Pre-Inter Lyrical * Inter Hip-Hop * Inter Tap * Pre-Pointe * Conditioning

While we still support once-weekly attendance, multiple classes per week are recommended to allow your child to reach their fullest potential as a dancer. For example-

  • Two Ballet classes, plus one or two modern styles.

  • Two Ballet classes, Ballet Extensions Program.

  • One Ballet class, plus two or three modern styles.

  • Two or Three modern styles.

Ballet students wishing to take Royal Academy of Dance exams must attend at least two ballet classes per week (at the exam level) from Grade One Ballet level upwards.

14 years plus:

* RAD Grade 6/7/8 Ballet * RAD Intermediate Ballet * RAD Adv Foundation Ballet * Adv Jazz * Adv Musical Theatre * Adv Acrobatics * Adv Contemporary * Adv Lyrical * Adv Hip-Hop * Adv Tap * Elite Company * Pointe * Conditioning

Recreational participation is still supported, for example a modern dance class once per week for fun and fitness. However, by this stage many dance students have developed a strong passion for dance and begin to participate at a higher level. The achievement possibilities are vastly increased by attending multiple classes per week. Depending on the student’s focus (ballet, modern) we can devise a tailored program. For example-

  • Three Ballet classes, Conditioning class, two modern classes.

  • Four Ballet classes, Conditioning class, Pointe class for girls, one modern classes, Company class.

  • Six Ballet classes, Conditioning class, Pilates and Pointe class for girls.

  • One Ballet class, three Modern classes, Company class.
