These two Royal Academy based children’s classes bring the elegance, innovation and artistry of a first-class ballet training but raise the energy levels with some ‘cool vibes.’ A fusion of pop, jazz, disco, and a few hip-hop moves to spice up the all-round experience. An affordable class, with simple aims … good tuition, good fun!
Higher ballet ~ for those teens, male and female, who have reached senior grade levels, and for young women returning or complimenting their training. This class is based on higher level content, including some Intermediate, freestyle ballet choreography, stretching, strengthening and pointework for those who are able (others work on demi-pointe). We also include free movement and character dance and take a holistic approach to tuition.
We are able to coach exam entrants on a one-to-one basis, space permitting, and plan a return to comprehensive exam dedicated levels.We do take lessons on Zoom, should circumstances require it.
Our ‘1 to 1’ singing and piano lessons are thriving, and we have a special offer available for new pupils registering at junior age with an interest in achieving the know-how and ability to command a top performance! Some of our students have achieved leading roles in professional shows including Grease, Hairspray, Singing in the Rain and Wonderland.com with many having gained exceptional examination results to back up their talent.
Our ethos is to focus on health and well-being for everyone interested in expressive arts to please get in touch on our contact page or give us a call.
