Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Ballet Classes
The RAD offers an internationally-recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments designed to encourage, motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities. These syllabus classes provide a structure for our students to progress their learning and achievement in dance.
A fun and lively dance class for 3-4 year-olds that uses props, storytelling and imagination to develop physical movement and encourage creativity, expression and confidence. The perfect foundation for the RAD ballet syllabus.
Modern classical ballet dancers need to be versatile. Ballet companies collaborate with contemporary choreographers to produce beautiful works such as English National Ballet and Akram Khan’s Giselle. Our contemporary class is the perfect way to start the weekend, giving dancers the chance to let go, feel the music and simply enjoy movement.
For our dancers to reach their maximum potential they need to keep fit through building stamina, muscle strength and joint flexibility. Starting with an aerobic workout and finishing with stretching for flexibility and meditation to calm the mind, the main focus of this class is on Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT), a revolutionary programme that uses fit balls and resistance bands to help train muscle memory.
A dedicated pointe work class for our senior students to build up their strength and confidence in pointe work. This is an invitation only class for those in Grade 4 and above attending multiple classes a week and who have gained the strength required to dance on pointe.
