What to Expect

Parents are welcome to accompany their child for their initial 3 week trial, after which they will be asked to wait outside. Each term we hold a watching week for parents, friends and family to come along and see what their children have learned.

Students will gain strength, control, stamina, musicality, performance, presentation, confidence, increased posture and flexibility whilst expanding their technical knowledge of classical ballet and tap dance.
