The Classical Ballet Academy is designed to discover talented girls and boys between the ages of 7 – 16 years and provide them with a high level of pre-vocational classical training.

The Classical Ballet Academy (CBA) introduces young boys and girls to the fundamentals of vocational training. The focus is on technique, artistry and musicality. Freedom of expression and confidence is encouraged in a nurturing holistic manner.

The programme complements the student’s individual training with their regular ballet school and gives them an opportunity to work with other talented children who share the same goals and ambitions to have a career in dance. Boys are taught separately by a male teacher and all classes are streamed by ability and age. Class numbers are kept small and all classes are accompanied by a pianist in our Tring Park Studios.

Audition Information

CBA is closely associated with the main school and the dance faculty often guest teach on the course. The course follows similar criteria to the main school in preparation for Tring Park School auditions and possible entry.

The program consists of 6 Sunday Sessions per term. The session includes a 90 minute Classical Ballet Class, followed by 45 minutes of either Pointe Work, Repertoire or Pilates.
