The most beautiful and challenging of all dance styles, requiring grace, discipline and strength. We recommend that all students begin in this style.
Commencing at Kindergarten age and with the emphasis on fun, children are taught basic ballet movement with music and rhymes. They progress through carefully designed levels or grades as developed by Cecchetti Ballet Australia.

Ballet exams are not compulsory, but are recommended to provide students with a goal to work towards each year and a sense of accomplishment.
We also offer Junior and Senior Ballet Technique classes for students who wish to enjoy the benefits of studying ballet, but without the pressure of exams or performances. This class is perfect for students commencing ballet at an older age or those who wish to use the ballet training to strengthen their technique in other dance styles such as jazz and contemporary.
