Yes, we offer makeup classes to catch up on any lessons that your dancer may miss. All make up classes must be taken in the same term in which the missed class occurred. Please email the office to organise your makeup classes.
We recommend you arrive at least 5 minutes before class so that your dancer is settled and does not feel rushed. Arriving rushed or late doesn’t feel good. (Of course we know that sometimes it is unavoidable and we understand).
For your first ever ballet class, we suggest you come at least 10 minutes early so we can show you around the studio.
For older students we recommend you arrive at least 15minutes prior to class to warm up correctly.
Yes! We put on a huge concert each year. Our concert is on Sunday 11th December 2022 and we cannot wait! It is entirely your option whether you want your child to participate. We give you opportunities throughout the year to watch your child. At the end of each term we have Open Week when we invite you to come see your child’s achievements.
Yes, they do! We are a traditional ballet school, we value & respect all the traditions of classical ballet and theatre. We believe that uniforms assist in creating sophisticated dancers, class structure & discipline. We also feel they create equality. However, we suggest you trial our classes before buying the uniform…we want to make sure you love us first! (We think you will).
We believe your child learns more comprehensively without you in the room. We also believe in time for YOU!!! So relax in the knowledge that your child is in safe hands and go for a walk or a coffee, run some errands or get some work done. We invite to watch our beautiful classes at the end of each term so we can show you the improvement your dancer has made throughout the term
Yes! We have an obligation free trial period of 2 weeks. We believe your child will love us but we think you should know for sure before you outlay expenses on term fees and uniform. We have 100% money back guarantee. If you don’t love us after 2 weeks of classes we’ll give you your money back no questions asked.
Good question! We believe our studio will engage with and challenge your child in a positive way. Your child’s imagination will run wild and at the same time their classical ballet technique will be nurtured. We think our single biggest asset is our live accompanist, Miss Alla. The experience of dancing to live music and connecting with it is inimitable. We also know there are a lot of great ballet schools around. We suggest you give us a go before deciding. (And if you aren’t lucky enough to live close to us, drop us a line and we’ll happily recommend a great studio near you).
Um….yes! We are a ballet school…and a traditional one at that. Our focus is ballet, it is what we do well and what we love. Our students may opt to do all of our classes but they must do their weekly syllabus class as well.
Park in the car park…..so many convenient parking spaces to choose from.
Exit the car park, cross the pedestrian crossing. Turn right at Black Star Pastry (stop and get a pastry maybe too?) and walk up the hill past Hoyts and turn left. You’ll see us hiding in the corner up there in our beautiful studios…just for us!
We get this question a lot. The simple answer is, no ballet is not too strict. We have fun all the time.
The longer answer is…
Our younger classes are engaging, creative and joyful whilst instilling the basic technique required for safe classical ballet.
And as our students mature they realise hard work is its own reward. Our students learn that the journey is the fun. Goal setting and achieving those goals is what it’s all about. The friendships that bloom here provide comradery and lifelong relationships. Our concerts are always the most joyful end to each year.
We offer PreBabyrinas and Babyrinas to 2.5 – 5year olds. After your child turns 5 they move into the PrePrimary syllabus of the RAD. Our older students can do Jazz, Contemporary, Pointe, Lyrical and Drama classes as well.
