Ballet classes are offered from Baby Ballet (2 years of age), all the way through to Advanced 2 level, training classical ballet through the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus.
The Studio offers students the opportunity to take classes just for enjoyment or the opportunity to take their training more seriously; ballet exams are offered from Grade 1 Level (approximately 7 years old). Children wishing to do ballet exams must take 2 classical ballet classes per week.
Ballet can help children develop co-ordination, improve posture and also develop a sense of musicality and rhythm.
Ballet is enjoyable and also very rewarding for students, particularly promoting self-discipline and self-confidence.
Please note, students must take a minimum of 1 ballet class per week in order to enrol in contemporary.
Contemporary is an expressive style of dance that encourages dancers to move fluidly in alternative styles of movement. Contemporary draws elements of movement & methods from different dance styles such as modern, lyrical and classical ballet.
There are currently 7 levels of contemporary offered at the studio ranging from Primary Contemporary - Senior Contemporary.
Students can commence contemporary lessons when they are in Primary Ballet (approximately 6 years old).
Conditioning is offered to students from Grade 2 ballet and above.
Conditioning helps to train fitness, strength and flexibility and is a fantastic addition to the dancer's training.
At our Bunbury branch of the studio, conditioning is compulsory for all students wishing to take ballet exams and for students wishing to do solos/duos/trios and competitions.
Pointe lessons commence at approximately age 12 for dancers. Dancers wishing to begin pointe training must be taking a minimum of 2 ballet classes per week to ensure they are strong enough for the demands of pointe work.
