Ballet Tots

This exciting class is open to children from 18 months to 4 years. It will be a drop in class, so no need to book or sign up for the term, just pop along each week. The price per class is £6 for one child and £8 for two or more siblings. Parents will be expected to stay in the hall for the duration for the lesson and are even welcome to join in too! The class will be a fun and imaginative time taking the children through stories and themes using different props and introducing children to the basics of ballet and dance movements.

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.

Musical Theatre

Our Musical Theatre classes are a way of introducing different dance styles, drama and singing to students. Each term the class will focus on a different Musical and students will work through some pieces with the idea that at the end of the term a small performance will be given to show what they have learnt. You will sign up for each term, so it is flexible if you decide to do the entire year or just one term.
We know how much the children enjoy our productions on the stage, so this is a way that they get more opportunities for performances and to expand their dance knowledge. Here are the details for this term:

Autumn Term 2017:
• Free taster session on 16 September
• Open to anyone from the ages of 6 and over
• End of term performance on 9 December
