BALLET (age 5+)

(Ages 5+) Ballet is the foundation for all other dance forms as it develops posture, alignment, coordination, balance, strength and musicality. At Elements Dance Co. classes are based on the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, an international curriculum and examining body taught worldwide.

RAD ballet exams are offered throughout the season to those dancers who our staff feel are ready for the exam process. Exams play a valuable role in each dancer’s training as they provide an opportunity for goal setting, challenge and achievement.
