Movement, music, and magic in our curriculum for children aged 3-4 years. Taught with a live pianist, these
are lively but structured classes that develop children’s physical skills and encourage creativity, expression,
and musicality. And, behind all the fun, they’ll actually be prepared for a transition to ballet and other dance
genres at higher levels.
Age bracket: 5-6 years old
These structured classes develop students’ physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression and musicality
using a range of movements and musical styles. The syllabi prepare students for a successful transition to
ballet and other dance genres at higher levels.
Age bracket: 8 years and up (no upper limit)
- Ballet – the foundation and the most important part of the syllabus.
- Free Movement – influenced by and incorporating movements in common with other dance
styles such as Natural Movement, Contemporary and Classical Greek Dance.
- Character – the theatrical presentation of national dance using original ethnic dance and music
which has been freely adapted for the theatre. The three styles — Hungarian, Russian and Polish —
were selected because of their historic importance in the development of the nineteenth century
full-length classical ballets.
Competency based – No age restriction
