Classes for Young People

We are not currently able to take any new registrations due to social distancing measures in place for our classes. Please check our website and social media for updates.

For ages 8 – 16

Our classes for young people are accompanied by live music* and develop each dancer’s technical ability whilst enhancing their presentation skills and musicality.

We strongly recommend students in Ballet 1 attend two classes per week. Students in Ballet 2 and above must take a minimum of two classes per week in order for them to make progress.
