Classical Ballet classes provides a fully comprehensive training for children and young adults who wish to dance for pleasure and those interested in a professional training. Ballet is often noted as being the 'core' of all Theatre dance due to the strength and flexibility it promotes along with the sensitivity and precision of technique that complements an artistic performer.
The roots of Imperial Classical Ballet stem from the early days of the ISTD and the first written syllabus in 1913 which was based on the teaching of the French School from the Paris Opéra. The syllabus has now evolved to promote the English classical style and address the changing needs of Ballet dancers today. Through the ISTD syllabi, children and students are encouraged to acquire a sound basic technique combined with an understanding of co-ordination and musical interpretation. Ballet is essential for anyone considering a career within dance. Special classes for tots and pre-school children are offered, as well as classes through the grades leading to the vocational graded syllabi and Pointe work.
