Grade Seven/Eight Ballet

Grade seven and eight classes are conducted at the central studios. At this level it is required that students take 2 classes per week in order to achieve a satisfying level of skill. Technique classes include Floor Work, Barre, Centre Practice, Saut├ęs and Demi-Pointe work. Students are prepared for their yearly grade examination and participate in the annual major ballet production.

We are pleased to offer an additional class – ‘Pointe Preparation’. These classes are recommended for students wishing to extend their studies and to prepare for Pointe work in Seniors Ballet.

As grooming plays an important part in ballet and performance, we expect correct grooming from our ballet students, and expect our older students to take on this responsibility themselves.
