Ballet is considered to be the core foundation for dance training and all children at VBDance are encouraged to take at least one Ballet class per week if they wish to take their dance training as a serious hobby.
For our younger pupils starting Ballet classes, the sessions are fun and exciting employing the use of props, extra costumes, storytelling and mime.
As the pupils increase in their ability, they work their way through the Imperial Classical Ballet Grades learning more complex steps, positions and enchainments which demand a greater deal of strength, flexibility, performance and musicality.
Students are offered the opportunity to take their ISTD Ballet Examinations when they have reached the required standard.
Beyond the steps: Ballet classes encourage young dancers to self-critique, develop poise, confidence, positive “can-do” attitude and establish personal goal setting skills.
