Ballet

 

Classical ballet is arguably the foundation of most modern dance forms we have today. It is the most enquired about program at The Academy, and most of our students throughout the school either train in ballet, or take a ballet class to compliment their other dance style. The Academy's approach to ballet has been developed and refined since the school opened 25 years ago.

 

As each student progresses through their ballet study, they develop in the various aspects of ballet, including character (national dance), pointe, pas de deux and repertoire. The hours required for study are also carefully worked out on age/experience to ensure maximum potential:
