Welcome

Ballet is one of the most demanding but also one of the most enjoyable dance forms ever created, providing benefits such as good posture, discipline and confidence building. We run Royal Academy of Dance Graded and Vocational classes encouraging the joy of movement in children from 3 years of age at our studio in Beckenham, Kent. We offer annual outings to the Royal Opera House, hold workshops and other dance related events.

Autumn term begins Friday 4th September 2015

 

Adult Ballet Tuesdays 8-9pm  

 Dust of your shoes, dig out your leotards and dance!  Ballet is a great way to get toned, improve posture, coordination and connect with the inner dancer! If you danced as a child or student and are keen to dust of your ballet shoes again do come and join our enthusiastic, energetic group in Beckenham. Ballet class with a live pianist, total joy! Come along one Tuesday if you want to get fit, start a new hobby, or rediscover the wonderful world of ballet. We just love to dance!

This is a new ballet adventure for pre school children from 18 months to 3 years. At babyballerina children are encouraged to...  Learn all about ballet dancing and have fun doing it! They will explore their imagination through storytelling and fairy tales and be at ease dancing with other children. They will learn to express themselves confidently, make friends, smile, laugh, and have a great time. Take a look at our sparkly new site!
 
Baby Ballet Classes Monday & Saturday.  
We hold classes starting at 3 years of age for pre school ballet on Monday at 3.15-4.00pm or Saturday at 2.00-2.45pm. It is an excellent introduction into the structure of ballet lessons, lots of images and themes are involved in the class, designed so that they are performing ballet exercises in a manner that is fun and stimulating. These are informal, imaginative ballet classes taken by a fully qualified and registered teacher. Children may attend a trial lesson on one of these days, please contact the school for further information. For children below 3 years there is babyballerina.co.uk the new little sister ballet school for children from 18 months.
