This program follows the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus (R.A.D.) This proven training format is used internationally as an effective way to teach ballet and develop a solid base for other dance styles.
Ballet classes at the Royal Academy consist of barre, centre practice and enchainments to help the steps flow together and to gain an understanding of patterning on the stage.
Pointe is offered for students aged 12 and older who have demonstrated strong development in their ballet skills. Pointe is a sought-after technique that requires high levels of balance and control to keep dancers on their toes.
Tap into your child’s potential with tap dance lessons! Tap is an energetic style which uses tap shoes to create rhythms. Students will learn coordination and how to create the best sounds by moving their feet.
The focus is on rhythm and agility, but fun is also a big component of tap!
