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.

NON-SYLLABUS BALLET

At NLPAC we understand that not all chidren wish to take grades and exams. For those children who want to learn Ballet for fun, without any set syllabus, we offer a range of non-syllabus classes. These are still structured and students will learn Ballet technique and the joy of dance.

ISTD GRADED BALLET

For students who wish to follow the graded exam route, we offer classes in Imperial Classical Ballet with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. 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 and abovewho receive a distinction mark, in exams are offered the opportunity to take part in the prestigious ISTD Imperial Ballet Junior and Senior awards in the Autumn each year.

Below is the timetable of ISTD SYLLABUS BALLET classes for autumn 2021. 

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. 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.
