We follow the syllabus set by the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance)
Ballet is a fun and challenging activity, offering many benefits for young children. It is great for improving posture, developing strength and co-ordination, maintaining good fitness levels and improving social skills. The RAD program is ideal for dancers looking for a syllabus that offers learning along with fun and a feeling of accomplishment. Learning ballet teaches children discipline and helps them to develop more confidence. Even though your child may not pursue a career in dance, the benefits achieved will stay with them for years to come.
