Classical Ballet

Classical ballet is a traditional, formal style of dance.  It is known for its graceful, flowing, precise movements and is particularly good for strength, flexibility and posture. We follow the ISTD Imperial Ballet Syllabus and all students have the option to take examinations when deemed ready by their teacher.

Pointe Work

Pointe work is part of the classical ballet technique in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes. Students begin to study this once they have passed their Grade 4 ballet exam or when the teacher feels their feet and legs are strong enough.


A pointe work assessment will be required before commencing this class.

Tap Dance

Tap dance is characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal "tap" on the heel and toe.
Tap is a fun dance style in which the dancer creates rhythmical patterns with their feet.  Tap is a high energy, exciting form of dance, brilliant for co-ordination, rhythmical awareness and confidence.
