These classes are intended to give children from 2 ½ to 4 years in age a happy introduction to dance and music. These classes explore movement using ballet as the foundation through imaginative story themes. They will gain self-confidence and key skills of learning to listen and follow instructions. The children are given an understanding of how to work within a group environment, share and take turns whilst having great fun in a friendly and positive environment.

RAD Ballet, grades primary through 8

The Royal Academy of Dance syllabus has been carefully structured on nine levels to give a full spectrum of qualities that boys and girls alike may gain from the study of ballet.

Examinations are optional and can be taken from the age of 6 years old. There is no pressure placed on children to take examinations but they are encouraged to gain a sense of achievement. When students are preparing for examinations they attend twice a week for the appropriate term.

RAD Vocational Syllabus

We have recently started offering Intermediate Foundation at Turning Pointe and excited to see so many students already taking part. This class is part of the Vocational Syllabus from the RAD and will focus on technical exercises that are designed to strengthen and develop ballet technique. As this is a very technical class, we feel that only invited students may take part in these classes. If your child is not invited and is showing an interest in this class, please feel free to talk to the teachers.
