Ballet is known as the root of all dance. Classes consist of barre work and centre practice providing dancers with strength, flexibility, endurance, poise and grace. This extremely disciplined form of dance provides the foundation on which all other forms of dance are built.
Students are instructed using the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and the British Association Teachers of Dance syllabus. Exam and non-exam programs are available.
