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.

Summer Term 2016

Ballet classes in Beckenham Kent from Saturday 9th April through to Monday 4th July.

 

Adult Ballet Tuesday 8-9pm

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. 

Pre- School Ballet 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.
 

Royal Academy of Dance Examinations  

The Royal Academy of Dance was founded in 1920 to maintain the quality of dance teaching. Its Patron is Queen Elizabeth II and the President is Darcey Bussell. It's currently present in 79 countries worldwide and is one of the leading organisations in dance education and training. We hold regular ballet examinations at our dance studio in Beckenham. Children from the age of seven are considered for entry for grade one upwards when they have reached the required level of technique and performance. All of our teachers are fully qualified and registered with the RAD. Our provisional dates for RAD summer 2016 exams are Tuesday 5th & Wednesday 6th July.

Theatre Trip
33 members and friends of the school went to see Scarlett W perform in Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace Theatre during February half term. We are all thoroughly inspired, well done Scarlett. We just love to visit the theatre and watch a variety of dance performances.
