Primary Ballet [RAD] (6-8)

Weekly Class:  East Finchley, Saturdays: 10 - 10:45am

At our Academy we currently offer our ballet beginners class for the Primary ballet age group: 6-8 years.

Ballet beginners is the perfect introduction to begin learning the technique, terminology and first steps of Ballet dance. Our Ballet teachers are committed to approaching the learning of ballet technique through the use of storytelling, creativity and imagination, making our classes fun!

Our Ballet classes follow the Royal Academy of Dance Primary Ballet syllabus and offer our students the opportunity to enter their exams and develop through their grades, examined and accredited by the Royal Academy of Dance. But don’t worry, if students choose not to enter any exams, they are encouraged to still continue learning in the classroom along with all of their friends. No ballerina is left behind!

Dance classes at our Academy work towards optional annual dance showcases as well as competitions and public performances throughout the academic year.

Our dance teachers are all fully DBS checked, experienced and passionate coaches, ready to inspire, support and develop our student’s ability in dance.
