Children's Ballet & Modern, age 3 - 5
Pre - Primary Ballet
10.30 - 11.00am
3.45 - 4.15pm
Boys and Girls can try either Pre-Primary Ballet class with simple ballet movements developing basic technique, musicality and rhythm, artistic expression, strengthening exercises, preparation for jumps and simple dances. Not all children are ready to perform at this age, (which doesn't necessarily mean they won't love to show their skills when older), but one of the benefits of beginning at this age is that shyer children develop core confidence. Classes have themes that make learning fun, and learning to stand still and 'wait your turn' when dancing one-by-one are great preparation for beginning school.
£45.60 per 12-week term (can be paid in 4 instalments). free trial class, after which £3.80 per week for first term; discount if Modern classes are taken as well
4.00 - 4.45pm
Primary Modern is a great class for after school, using simple limbering, strengthening and musical exercises to develop co-ordination, balance, strength and control as well as a sense of drama and performance. Children aged 4 and 5 can take the ISTD Primary Modern exam when ready, and work on simple dances for performances. Exercises for footwork, arm movements, presentation and others help with ballet technique too.
£60.00 per 12-week term (can be paid in 4 instalments); free trial class, after which £5.00 per week for first term; £8.00/£96.00 per term for Ballet AND Modern
