Classes for Young People

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.

*Except the RAD classes
