Our school consists of 3 different class structures -
Pre School Program
Pre School Program – 2 to 5 years
Classical Ballet - Recreational and Examination/Extension
We often talk about ballet being our vegetables and our foundation... because it is exactly that! Classical Ballet is the foundation of all other dance styles and we recommend all students enrol in a classical ballet class. Technique, discipline, focus, strength, flexibility, posture are all just some of the things taught and learnt during our classes. The earlier ballet training is started the more beneficial it is for the dancer.
We have recreational and examination/extension classes available. Our examination classes learn the Borovansky syllabus from the Australian Institute of Classical Dance. Our examination students move up grades by passing examinations. Once a student is in Grade 2 ballet it is compulsory they attend 3 ballet classes per week, being their current grade, the grade up and then classical coaching class suitable for their level.
All EPP students must attend Classical Coaching as a minimum requirement for the EPP program.
