Classes for all ages and abilities

Pre-Primary and Primary Dance

These classes are for children aged 4 to 7 years. They are an introductory ballet class for our youngest girls and boys using natural movements, colourful props, and musical instruments. Together the teacher and children create stories inspired by their imagination and the music. As the levels progress, the content continues to emphasise natural movement developing them into simple ballet sequences.
