BALLET CLASSES

At NLPAC we recommend students learn classical Ballet. A sound Ballet technique provides an easy transition into other forms of dance. Ballet trains the body carefully, developing strength, control, coordination and line.

 We offer beginner classes for 3-4 year olds, and teenage students returning to ballet or starting for the first time, spcialist boys classes along with graded classes in ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) Imperial Classical Ballet following the ISTD syllabus. Students are given the opportunity to take exams from Pre-Primary up to Advanced 2 Vocational exams. Students wishing to be entered for exams must attend an extra class in the term of the exam from Grade 1 upwards. Students studying for Vocational Graded examinations: Intermediate-Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced 1 & 2, must attend both weekly syllabus classes. The ISTD Diploma in Dance Education teaching qualification is also offered in Imperial Classical Ballet as well as Tap and Modern Theatre to students 17 years and over.

Successful exam students from Grade 1 who recieve a distinction mark, are offered the opportunity to take part in the prestigious ISTD Imperial Ballet Junior and Senior awards in the Autumn each year.

BALLET TIMETABLE2018/19

Below is the timetable of classes for 2018/19. Ages are given as a guideline but once a trial class has been taken, the teacher will suggest the best possible class for the student. Examinations are not compulsory but if a child wishes to we hold examinations at our centre at the end of every summer term.

We have a variety of ballet classes for children who may be starting or returning to ballet from 10 years old or do not wish to take formal graded ballet classes. We also have specialised technique classes for students who already attend a graded class with us and wish to take their studies further. A dedicated Boys Ballet class is part of our Boys Performance School and encourages boys to take up this fantastic dance form.
