Ballet

Ballet is one of the most widespread dance styles in the world and offers a great foundation for all forms of dance. Our ballet classes are based on the ballet technique and vocabulary as set by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). The RAD is the world’s leading organisation in classical ballet education and is recognised worldwide.

Teachers use a mix of RAD and free exercises to keep their classes fun, yet challenging for students of all ages and abilities. Learn more here

 Cheer

We’ve known for a long time that kids love nothing more than attempting and perfecting new “tricks.” Remember learning a cartwheel? We sure do, and it’s that sense of pride and exhilaration that we love to pass on to all students in our Cheerleading classes!

We use the IASF (International All-star Federation) rules when working on stunts and tumbling. Our stunts and tricks will be put into an electrifying routine to wow our concert audience!
