Le Petit Ballet Class Guide
Petit Ballet 2-5 years
Ballet is the foundation to all styles of dance. It teaches children elegance, grace and amazing posture. We know many petits dream about tutus and pointe shoes. We learn soft fluid movements and basic ballet steps including demi-plies, spins, toe points and skips. Our ballet classes follow a magical story each term giving our lessons a special sparkle.
Pre-Primary / Primary Ballet
Kindergarten - Year 1
Our Primary Ballet combines elements of the RAD syllabus with our own story-based themes. We give children the chance to develop their own creative flair while building confidence. We introduce many of the foundation ballet steps. Our Primary Ballet is a bridge between petit ballet and RAD ballet syllabus classes.
Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) 7+ years
From 7 years old classes follow the renowned Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus. Students will start to develop a good understanding of the foundations of ballet and also begin to develop their unique artistry. Students may be invited to enrol for an exam with the RAD.
Jazz 3+ years
Jazz is an upbeat dance style that is accompanied by pop music. It will keep your child moving and grooving. We learn basic jazz technique and steps including jazz runs, kicks, turns and leaps. This class is a great compliment to ballet or on its own.
Lyrical 6+ years
Lyrical dance is a modern style that combines ballet and jazz technique. The term Lyrical comes from the word “lyric,” which means to have a poetic, expressive quality. Lyrical is performed to music with lyrics to inspire expression of emotions through movement. Lyrical can be a wonderful extension from ballet and also a beautiful introduction to dance as it instills a sense of enjoyment by simply moving to the music.
Tap Dance 3+ years
Tap dancing is an energetic style focusing on movements of the feet to create sounds from tap shoes. Tap dance helps to build strength in the body and precise movements of the feet. It really is lots of fun!
Stretch and Condition 6+ years
The perfect accompaniment to every class. This class focuses on stretching and strengthening. Our dancers always ask to stretch. We have dedicated an entire class to help those dancers waiting to get more flexible and improved their technique.
