Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturdays
We have an extensive range of Ballet classes for all ages in including children, older beginner children and adults.
We have examinable ballet classes from 3 years. These include RAD Intermediate and Saltare. Saltare has been developed from many years of experience based on teachings from our patron Lucette Aldous. It is Russian based with influence from Paris Opera Ballet School, Royal Danish Ballet School, The Royal Ballet School and Bournonville techniques. We believe it enables the dancers to gain a higher standard of technique but also enables the dancer to keep their own individuality and flowing dance quality imperative for professional work. We are supported by both Dame Lucette and teachers of The Royal Ballet School in teaching this method. We teach a small percentage of RAD and are a registered RAD school however our classes are predominantly Saltare method as we feel this produces a more well rounded dancer.
We also teach adult ballet on Mondays (beginners) and Thursdays (open class), these are relaxed friendly classes open to everyone.
We also offer classes for older beginners on Monday evening 5:30-6:30pm who missed the chance to start when little.
