From 5 to 8 years old, by ability.
RAD Primary ballet is suitable for pupils in Year 1-2 at school age 5-6, 7-8.
Our Primary class encourages self-discipline and self-expression, developing listening skills, encouraging children to follow instruction, learning to work as an individual and in a group. It develops co-ordination, good posture, strength and flexibility. Our ballet class provides a nurturing environment for development of artistry and musical appreciation too!
From this age, we want our Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) based classes to stay imaginative, guiding children through the demands of classical technique with constant encouragement and inspiration.
It is also at this stage that we slowly introduce our students to the Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT)
In keeping with the quality of our tuition for younger children classes are also accompanied by experienced pianists.
Uniform: Blue Ballet Dress, Pink Cardigan, Ballet socks and shoes.
