Ballet Dancing (Miss Jellis)

Tuesdays - Reception and Year 1 during the school day , Year 2  3.20-4.00pm

Children can begin Ballet lessons from Reception where they learn the basics to classical technique, through the use of enjoyable exercises, mime and imagination. Ballet is an important basis to all forms of dance and helps to create a strong sense of self-discipline as well as confidence and strong postural awareness which will assist many aspects of life aside from dance.

Examinations are optional for some students, however, if children do not wish to participate for any reason they can still progress through the levels with their peer groups and dance purely for enjoyment. The school offers The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance, Modern Theatre and Tap Dance Faculty, Royal Academy and Cecchetti classical Ballet. All dance examinations taken are fully accredited by the council for dance education and training (CDET).
