Grade Four Ballet

Our Grade 4 students partake in two 1 hr classes a week – a ‘Level 1’ class and a ‘ level 2’ class. These two levels focus on different aspects of Classical Ballet.

Level 1

Our level 1 class focuses on:

  • Introduction of new classical ballet positions and moves
  • Eurhythmic with acting elements Composition (creative)
  • Character Dance Performance
  • Fitness development

Students study Level 1 as a pre-requisite for level 2. These classes are at the following locations:

πŸ“ Applecross
πŸ“ Burswood
πŸ“ Canning Vale
πŸ“ Cockburn
πŸ“ Duncraig
πŸ“ North Perth

Level 2

Students are required to take the level 2 class at our main studios. This class further develops the classical technique, improves strength and flexibility, and prepares the students for their yearly grade examination and EOY productions. This level 2 class is compulsory for students wanting to participate in our EOY performances.

These classes are only available at the following locations:

πŸ“ Burswood
πŸ“ North Perth
πŸ“ Karratha

Our classes do require a ballet uniform. Wearing an uniform ensures dancers are in safe and practical clothing for dancing, as well as puts them in the right mindset for Classical Ballet. See more forΒ uniform requirements and our suppliers.

Grade Four examinations

The Grade Four level participates in Classical Ballet examination in a positive and supportive atmosphere, without fear or undue stress. Students will receive a certificate and report following their class examinations at the end of the third term.

Our End of Year (EOY) productions

At the end of the year, Level 2 students are encouraged to perform in our EOY productions! Our productions include fan-favourite ballet performances of The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Don Quixote, and more. All our students get the chance to dance alongside industry professionals and Youth Ballet WA students at the major theatres across Perth!
