Ballet

Try a class

We encourage your child to come along to 3, free, trial classes before you commit to paying for a term. 

To begin with, students can just wear something that's comfortable to move in such as shorts and t-shirt, gym kit, or leotard and tights.

Age range

Our ballet dance classes are for children aged 3 and over.

Enrol

If your child has had a free trial and would like to attend the Dance Theatre for a whole term you just need to complete an enrolment form including details of all of the classes that they will be attending.

Ballet Vocabulary

It's important that students understand the language that the teacher uses during ballet classes. We've produced a ballet vocabulary guide to support students from Grade 1 onwards.

Exams

Students will only be entered for exams when the teacher feels that they're ready. It's not compulsory that a student takes exams, but it is encouraged.
