We offer our Preparatory classes to children that are 4 ½ years old, who are also eligible to attend four-year-old Kindy. Children who are not yet old enough to begin our Preparatory programme can enrol for our Pre-school dance programme Kindy Dance Time.
The Preparatory Programme is designed for children who are ready to dance independently in a class environment. Our lessons are structured to introduce the basic routine of a ballet lesson while still encouraging the use of imagination, musicality and improvisation throughout. The children learn through enjoyment, with lessons including topics and themes relating to their age and development.
Classes of 30 minutes are held once a week during the term, with some Preparatory programmes run in conjunction with Pre-primary lessons. Students who attend a class such as this will be required to complete the Pre-primary programme the following year.
Preparatory students do not participate in the end of year production, however, will receive a certificate of achievement at the completion of the year’s study.
