CLASSICAL BALLET  - VAGANOVA SYLLABUS (5 & up)
 

Ballet is recognized as one of the world's most elegant dance forms, known for its demanding nature. It serves as the foundation for various other dance styles. As students immerse themselves in ballet, they acquire discipline, refine posture, embody grace, and grasp essential ballet terms, all while mastering fundamental movements accompanied by classical music.

Studying with a qualified ballet teacher is important for a child’s health and safety. The syllabus of the Society of Classical Ballet - Vaganova Method, has been attentively developed to ensure a steady, careful technical and artistic progression from one level to the next.
