At The South Sutton Ballet School we follow the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus which allows your child to develop a strong understanding in classical ballet technique. It also introduces your child to national dance styles such as Russian, Polish and Hungarian, as seen on stage in Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty. For more information on the RAD please visit their website, www.rad.org.uk
For children aged three to five-years-old we start to build a foundation in classical ballet technique through our creative adventures. Each week your child will be taken on a magical journey, visiting well-loved characters from storybooks and film, and hopping, skipping and galloping all the way there.
Ballet is a very physical art form and is a fantastic way of developing flexibility, co-ordination, balance and poise. Rhythm, musicality and development in expressive, creative and artistic qualities are also nurtured in the ballet class. As ballet is a physical art form, the teacher will need to occasionally use “hands on” correction in order to make sure that the student is performing steps correctly and safely. As the school expands we also hope to add classes in tap, modern jazz, street dance and Pilates. If you are interested in any of these styles please enquire and we will endeavour to meet your needs.
All of our teachers are trained to the highest standard, are DBS checked as well as first aid trained and have your child’s health and safety in mind at all times. The school also holds public liability insurance.
