Ballet is the core subject of dance, and each student is highly encouraged to study Ballet. The discipline learnt through ballet is carried through all other subjects of dance, improving core strength, posture, extension, musicality and performance skills. Students have the opportunity to take graded examinations with the I.S.T.D. and medal examinations with the UKA, as well as performance opportunities. The I.S.T.D. examinations are accredited by the QCA. Ballet is essential for those wanting to pursue a career in dance, and suitable for all whether for enjoyment or a career. Our classes promote the enjoyment as well as the discipline of Ballet.
