Ballet

Introduction

The Junior Dance Department offers Ballet for children, starting from age 5. The Department adopts teaching methods that emphasise the establishment of a solid foundation and the development of artistic expression. Courses are specifically designed to combine technical training with stage performance. The Students are required to sit for the graded examinations conducted by Royal Academy of Dance and to participate actively in performances so as to gain an in-depth understanding of the art form itself.

Certification

Students are awarded Certificates upon successful passing of their graded exams. Upon completion of their Junior Ballet courses, Students may further pursue the course at Diploma level, if so desired.

Course Schedule

Lessons are conducted on weekends. (The day and timings are subjected to changes during each student-intake).
