Are you graded in ballet?
We do not grade our students or follow any syllabus, the ballet we teach is to underpin our contemporary training. Although it is not graded, progress is consistently monitored across all classes. Students are streamed in classes according to age and/ or ability, if students are attending and working to the best of their ability they will, without doubt, progress through the streaming sets.
Can you explain the screening process?
We screen our students once a year to monitor their growth, health, and to understand how to develop and tailor fitness and strength whilst safeguarding against injury. This is an opportunity for our highly trained physiotherapists to give them tools to strengthen their bodies with knowledge and information.
