Dance Classes for Children in Farnham, Surrey

Ballet RAD (The Royal Academy of Dance)

Our pre-school classes develop basic movement skills, musical awareness, expression and creativity. Classes incorporate storytelling, dress-up and creative play whilst introducing the basic principles of ballet technique. The Pre-Primary in Dance and Primary in Dance syllabi develop students’ physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression and musicality using a range of sounds and musical styles. The syllabi prepare students for a successful transition to ballet and other dance genres at higher levels. Examinations begin at Pre-Primary level through to Grade 8. We currently offer Pointe class to students at Grade 5 level and upwards. Ballet Dance classes are available to children from age 2½ years.

Through a carefully planned and well-tried examination syllabus, young people are trained to become disciplined and versatile dancers. Modern Dance classes are available to children from age 4 years.
