Students in the Third Form (Year Nine) are also able to supplement their vocational training with syllabus classes in RAD ballet and ISTD modern and tap, enabling students to achieve these useful qualifications via additional Saturday lessons.
Students are encouraged to develop fluency as performers across multiple dance genres, also attending regular lessons in modern dance and tap, and in the Third Form beginning an introduction to contemporary dance. Regular pilates lessons are also included on the timetable, supporting young dancers in their development of strong and healthy bodies.
Students on the Junior Dance Course receive training designed to develop a strong technical grounding in both classical ballet and modern dance, a reliable foundation enabling students to achieve high levels of excellence. Students attend regular lessons with a diverse faculty of teachers in ballet technique, with additional lessons in pointe work, and boys work to further strengthen their abilities.
