Ballet is a specific academic dance form and technique which is taught in ballet schools according to specific methods. There are many ballet schools around the world that specialize in various styles of ballet and different techniques offered. Our school is affiliated with The Royal Academy of Dancing (RAD). Ballet is best known for its unique features and techniques, such as pointe work, turn-out of the legs, and high extensions; its graceful, flowing, precise movements; and its ethereal qualities. We undertake examinations with the RAD every year – all classes do not take exams every year, and the candidates are entered at the discretion of the Head of Ballet Marian Lennon. We are very proud of our Ballet Faculty and the results which we have achieved over the years – and it’s never too late to start! The Head of Ballet will assess the abilities of new students on the first day of term. Please book into an age appropriate Grade and we can move you up of down depending on Ms. Lennon’s decision.
