Ballet for 6-7 year olds

 

Learning ballet at our studio promotes good posture, poise and strength. We work on developing a confident, happy and energetic dancers, learning skills and stamina that can be used in any area of life.

We teach a syllabus devised by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). This work is carefully graded to suit children to develop ballet skills slowly & carefully while encouraging enthusiasm and freedom of dance.

Our age levels are designed to fit with NZ school year age groups. Students in Year 2 (turning 6 before June 1st cutoff as a general rule) are in the Ballet Junior 2 level. This is a 45 minute class.
