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. At the end of the academic year students are assessed by the Artistic Director, the Director of Dance and the Head of Ballet of the main school.
Classes take place at our beautiful Tring Park Studios on six Sunday sessions per term and are levelled with an acknowledgment of both age and development. Girls and boys are taught separately with students placed in the class that is most suitable. Each session consists of body conditioning leading to a classical ballet class. This is followed by coaching or a repertoire class. Junior Girls undertake pre-pointe/ initial pointe training as appropriate with Mid & Senior Girls studying pointe work.
Class groups and times from September 2023 are as follows: Prep 1 Girls, Prep 2 Girls, Junior Girls, Prep/Junior Boys (10am until 12.30pm), and Mid 1 Girls, Mid 2 Girls, Senior Girls, Mid/Senior Boys (1.15pm until 4.15pm).
