The Pre-School Dance Curriculum develops basic movement skills, musical awareness, expression and creativity. Themed classes encourage class participation, focus and confidence that prepare students for entry to the Pre-Primary levels. This curriculum is appropriate for students between the ages of two and a half and five years.
These syllabi develop students’ physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression and musicality using a range of sounds and musical styles. This strong foundation prepares students for a successful transition to ballet and other dance genres. These levels are appropriate for students between the ages of five and eight years.
The Graded syllabi provide a broad practical dance education, progressively developing the technical, musical and performance skills of the student. They incorporate Classical Ballet, Free Movement and Character:
The Graded syllabi are appropriate for students from the age of six years.
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.
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.
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.
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.
