A bit about our ballet classes

Pre-school Age

In our Pre-school ballet classes, we establish basic ballet technique, working on rhythm and co-ordination. In these classes we use nursery rhymes to create movement to music and create imaginative dances using mime and actions. This class is a great preparation for the Cecchetti Syllabus.


We follow the I.S.T.D Cecchetti ballet syllabus for children aged 5 and above where they can progress through the syllabus taking ballet examinations. Cecchetti ballet is one of the twelve faculties of the ISTD and is nationally and internationally recognised. Enrico Cecchetti was one of the greatest influences on the foundations of modern classical ballet training, the Cecchetti syllabus gives dancers great all round training, focusing on technique, artistry and strength. 


In 2017 we introduced adult ballet to our timetable. This class is for beginners- intermediate level. In this class we learn fundamental ballet technique. We structure our class starting with Barre, Centre Work and then moving onto Allegro. This class is great for co-ordination, posture and balance.
