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.

Spring Term 2016

We return to ballet classes on Saturday 2nd January 2016.
Meanwhile have Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

 

Adult Ballet Tuesday

New Year, New You !  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 start back on Tuesday 5th January 8-9pm, just in time to work off those mince pies!

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. Classes start back on Monday 4th January 10.30-11am.

 
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. For children below 3 years there is babyballerina.co.uk little ballet school for children from 18 months.

 

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.
