Ballet – Classical

For students who want to excel in other areas of performance, we regard this as by far the most important of all the classes – any professional teacher or choreographer would agree. Well trained classical dancers can easily adapt to any other dance style. We teach the highly regarded Cecchetti Syllabus which is taught all over the world.

Students who choose to take their optional exams achieve outstanding results.
