Pre-School (RAD) Ballet Classes: This class is designed to introduce ballet and movement basics to children from three to five years in a fun and relaxed way. These classes are inspired by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Pre-School Curriculum and adapted by our teacher. In each class the students will enact through movement, dance and facial expressions a story from a book or movie, for example Sleeping Beauty or The Lion King. Story books and props are used to enhance audial, visual and kinesthetic learning as well as imagination. These classes will help to develop confidence, rhythm, social, motor and performance skills.

Saturdays 10.50 to 11.30 am, £4.50 per class, ages 3 to 5

Pre Primary picPrimary Ballet Classes: By this stage pupils will be able to enter for their first ballet exam should they so wish. Exams are not compulsory and many children decide to just move up, however at M & L School of Performing Arts we like to offer the option of ballet exams to those pupils who are keen to focus on perfecting the syllabus. We believe that studying towards exams teaches young people self-discipline, it encourages them to practice and perfect the steps, and can motivate them to work towards achieving a goal that is tangible. Ballet encourages self expression, developing listening skills, encouraging children to follow instruction, learning to work as an individual and in groups, developing co-ordination, good posture, strength and suppleness. Ballet also provides a nurturing environment for the development of artistry and musical appreciation.

Saturdays 10 to 10.50 am, £5.00 per class, ages 6 to 8 years old.
