Why join us?

A learning programme to suit everyone

Our training is based on the Royal Academy of Dance globally recognised programme, covering all ages and levels, with no previous ballet knowledge required. The main aim of our classes is for children to learn the basic elements of classical ballet and develop their physical strength and body posture through fun activities. Good posture increase flexibility, tones muscles, and strengthens bodily systems. Simultaneously, the programme offers in-depth study that prepares students for a career in ballet dancing.

Fun environment

Through a variety of fun exercises and sequences of movement choreographed to music, children develop a sense of rhythm, characterized by grace and precise movement. Children build their self-confidence while exercising in a fun environment with a friendly group.

Graded and vocational examination

Our school offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments developed and administered by the Royal Academy of Dance Examination Board. Children preparing for examinations receive additional training that focuses on the RAD dance syllabus for either Graded or Vocational Graded Examinations. Children can start with the Pre-School Dance Curriculum, proceed through Pre-Primary and Primary levels, and then move on to the eight Graded levels or six Vocational Graded levels.

Annual school performances

Our school organises the annual ballet productions where the children can demonstrate their ballet expertise and achievement through theatrical performances. Using genuine ballet venues, costumes, and choreographies throughout the performance, children grow in their affection for the theatre while performing in front of family and friends.
