The Classical Ballet classes train the students in the fundamentals of technique, grace, poise, strength and balance. Ballet also enables the students to develop coordination, posture, turn out, flexibility and pointe work. At Prestige Dance Academy, we educate our students under the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus, which is introduced from the Pre Primary Level up to all of the Elite Advanced Levels.
Our end of year production is another wonderful way to educate our students on the history of ballet and its heritage as we continuously rehearse from many of the most popular ballets ever seen. Our primary goal for the Classical Ballet classes is to develop the students artistic skills, dance technique and confidence through the belief that determination and perseverance can create success.
